Shopatron offers manufacturers like us the best of both worlds. We’re able to capture a sale directly from our website, and then hand that order off to one of our retail partners for immediate fulfillment. Everybody wins.
San Luis Obispo, CA (PRWEB) October 15, 2014
Shopatron, the world’s leading provider of cloud-based distributed order management solutions, today announced that it has partnered with Eminence, a leading manufacturer of professional audio and musical instrument loudspeakers, to provide customers the ability and convenience of purchasing products directly from the Eminence.com website through the brand’s extensive distribution network.
Through advanced solutions like ship-from-store fulfillment and in-store pickup, Shopatron’s patented, order routing technology allows manufacturers to seamlessly leverage the available inventory of every storefront and distribution center when fulfilling online orders. Prior to partnering with Shopatron in February 2014, Eminence’s primary marketing site lacked a shopping cart to capture sales for both the brand and its retail partners.
Eminence enthusiasts can now purchase products directly from Eminence.com, with quick and free delivery from a nearby dealer or distributor, combined with the security of an extensive, manufacturer warranty. The new fulfillment solutions allow Eminence to expand its online product offering to create an endless aisle and gain proximity to customers for lightning-fast delivery. Since the June 2014 launch, nearly half of the brand’s third-party retail partners shipped Eminence’s customer orders in less than 24 hours.
“Shopatron offers manufacturers like us the best of both worlds,” said Gary Morrison, Eminence U.S. distribution sales manager. “We’re able to capture a sale directly from our website, and then hand that order off to one of our retail partners for immediate fulfillment. Everybody wins. This program will encourage our retailers to stock more Eminence models, making our products more readily available across the USA for our consumers. Dealers can fulfill the orders we generate and increase their sales simply by having the items in stock.”
Today, leading multi-channel retailers, over 1,000 branded manufacturers, and 20,000 local retail stores use Shopatron to expand the delivery options for shoppers when they purchase online, including the ability to receive and return their orders in nearby retail locations.
“A prominent challenge for today’s brands is keeping customers happy while competing with unauthorized dealers selling through Amazon,” said Ed Stevens, founder and CEO, Shopatron. “Our cutting-edge SaaS-based tools make enterprise-class fulfillment accessible to every brand. We’re excited to welcome one of the most trusted names in audio to the Shopatron platform, where we’ll work together to drive a superior shopping experience.”
