Sees 1000 Percent Growth in First Year with Continual Expansion Every Year After

In 2008, its first year after switching from Zen Cart, the company saw 1000 percent growth—expansion it attributes to its first year with 3dcart.

In just five years, 3dcart customer TruTech Tools has grown from a start-up business run out of an upstairs bedroom to a five-person operation, complete with a warehouse, a calibration and repair lab and a fully functional consulting arm. In 2008, its first year after switching from Zen Cart, the company saw 1000 percent growth—expansion it attributes to its first year with 3dcart ecommerce software.

In 2009, the company saw a 200 percent increase in sales. By 2010, the company had expanded to include 30 product lines and logged another 20 percent increase in sales. 2011 brought another 35 percent jump in business.

“3dcart was light years ahead of Zen Cart in terms of what we needed our software to do,” says Jim Bergmann, TruTech Tools CTO. “It was the perfect platform to continually learn more about running an online store. We wouldn’t be where we are today without it.”

Jim cites three main reasons for the switch to 3dcart.

  •     Strong support staff: Jim says that he can “pick up the phone pretty much anytime of day and get help with managing the product.” 3dcart features 24/7 phone support in addition to email and live chat resources. “Everything a growing online retail business needs to stay on track,” Jim says.
  •     In-depth ecommerce learning resources: “Starting with limited ecommerce knowledge, we were able to learn and excel quickly based on 3dcart’s library of information,” Jim remarks. The TruTech team easily learned tricks like how to upload products and get them indexed by Google. “We’ve outpaced even the manufacturers in search results, thanks to strong content and the formula that 3dcart has put together.”
  •     Solid foundation for a business: According to Jim, “A lot of people try to design their website, then sit down and try to find a product that fits it. We needed a framework that would hold our product steady. 3dcart is a proven example of a solution that works for ecommerce.”

One of the most important results of the switch to 3dcart is difficult to put an exact number on. “Before 3dcart, the majority of our traffic came through pay-per-click (PPC) advertising. Now, almost all of our traffic comes in organically. It’s an important part of brand growth when you can make that kind of flip-flop.”
