Rochester, NY (PRWEB) March 26, 2008
Ecommerce solution provider UniteU Technologies congratulates five of their customers who have been named to Outdoor Business magazine's 2007 list of the Top 25 Independent Outdoor Specialty Retailers.
The five merchants include Neptunemountaineering.com and Outdoordivas.com, both based in Boulder, CO, Trailblazerdirect.com of Guilford, CT, Halfmoonoutfitters.com of North Charleston, SC and Metairie, LA based retailer Massey's Professional Outfitters who has five websites with UniteU that include, MasseysOutfitters.com; TheFlipFlopper.com, 800-SKI-SHOP.com and WeGotYourPack.com.
Outdoor Business magazine honors those retailers who "reflect the best practices in selling outdoor apparel and equipment, and participate in leadership roles in local, regional and national environmental initiatives." Their methodology for choosing the Top 25 honorees is "based on the Outdoor Business editorial staff's thorough review and analysis of outdoor specialty retailers, as well as input from Outdoor industry organizations, analysts, vendors, sales representatives and retailers." The Top 25 clearly understand that industry growth comes from reaching out to their own communities and introducing new people to the thrills of camping, hiking, paddling, climbing, snow sports and other outdoor pursuits. These 25 retailers embody the best of the Outdoor industry.
From Neptune Mountaineering's Accounting Manager, Roland Fortin, "It's our 35th anniversary this year and we are very excited to be a part of the industry's top 25, and to have our new web store humming along for the 2008 season. The UniteU team has been great to work with. The build and launch phases were seamless processes. The ecommerce integration between UniteU and our Retail Pro POS makes updating our web store a breeze. UniteU's staff took the time to show us the details of running our eStore. This has been a lot of work, but also fun and very educational. Before launching our web store with UniteU we knew nothing about running an ecommerce site. We have applied the training from UniteU and have had an amazing amount of success even before implementing our web marketing plan."
"We are proud to provide an ecommerce solution that meets the requirements of the top Outdoor Industry retailers," said Rebecca Ramme, VP of Sales and Marketing at UniteU. "Our customers drive our business, their success is priority one. We work in partnership with all our customers to help them attain their business goals. It's always rewarding to see our customers recognized as leaders in their industry."
