Online store potentials and benefits

For you

  • Low cost of starting up and maintaining the online store compared to a physical – bricks-and-mortar – store
  • Opportunity to present a wide range of goods , even products currently unavailable in stock, or the ones you offer for ordering by default
  • Wide geography of clients (you can sell products not only to the customers from your city, but to people all over the country or even the world)
  • Opportunity to analyze not only the amount and range of the products sold, but also customers, their preferences, their location, demographics, etc.
  • Low cost of advertising and promotion . A much higher number of users will find you on the web. Even if you have physical – bricks-and-mortar – stores, an online store will attract a lot more customers there too.

For our customers

  • Time saving when searching for and selecting the product
  • Possibility to place an order at any time and from any place

For instance, after the employee has entered the tracking number into the system and the package has been received in the delivery company office, the client will receive a message with the following wording “Your order has been sent.

The module provides a convenient working environment for the customer service manager. In this solution we connected the Cisco-based internal telephone exchange station with 1C:Enterprise platform-based configuration using the TAPI driver.
