San Luis Obispo, CA (PRWEB) January 25, 2013
SHS International, a premier manufacturing distributor of quality stringed instruments, has selected Shopatron to create and host its retail-integrated online store. The new store is designed to improve the customer buying experience and drive sales for the brand.
Utilizing Shopatron’s world-class eCommerce solution, SHS International is able to capture sales through its website and pass those sales to local retailers for delivery to the customer.
“Historically, we’ve relied on internal processes to keep our dealer locator accurate and up to date, but we’ve lacked the benefits of a ‘buy now’ function, something that today’s shoppers have come to expect,” said SHS Director of Information Technology and Social Media Sky Caserotti. “This is where Shopatron will raise our game. Not only will Shopatron help us keep an updated and accurate list of dealers, but it will help our customers get their orders much quicker.”
Shopatron’s retail-integrated solution aligns online and offline sales channels, which increases sales both for branded manufacturers and their retailers, while improving the buying experience for shoppers.
“By integrating retailers into the brand’s online sales process, Shopatron helps companies like SHS International give customers direct online access to products without cutting out local dealers,” said Shopatron SVP of Marketing, Mark Grondin. “It’s a win-win-win for all parties.”
