Toronto, ON (PRWEB) November 06, 2013
OrderDynamics®, Canada’s leading on-demand commerce platform provider, today announced Eclipse first eCommerce offering, EclipseStores.com, using the OrderDynamics eCommerce and Order Management Solutions. The recent launch showcases the retailer’s vision to support its 68 stores in Canada with an innovative omni-channel commerce strategy.
The new site expands on its non-transactional predecessor by offering a full catalog of Eclipse-branded apparel, accessories and outerwear, using OrderDynamics dynamic Product Merchandising tools to display vibrant product images with multiple views. Product pages also feature a Shop This Outfit component, which recommends items to build an outfit according to current fashion trends, allowing shoppers to leverage fashion expertise as they would from in-store sales staff. To further support a seamless omni-channel shopping experience, shoppers can check in-store stock of their desired items at a location most convenient to them with a Google Maps-Integrated Store Locator.
The sophisticated eCommerce launch includes several critical omni-channel features including ship from local stores, enterprise-wide inventory visibility, convenient fulfillment options and more. The combination of the OrderDynamics retail Order Management System, alongside its Epicor ERP system, has enabled efficient inventory distribution to drive a seamless shopping experience for customers. In addition, having full visibility into inventory across all retail stores and distribution centres has enabled Eclipse to intelligently route all web orders based on business rules and stock availability.
The OrderDynamics retail dashboards, in-store tools, and deep integration with Canada Post fulfillment solutions provides Eclipse the opportunity to grow as a national brand by fulfilling web orders across the country where retail outlets are not available, and offers customers the convenience and choice of having their order shipped to either their home or closest Canada Post location. During the first weeks since their omni-channel launch, more than 21% of customers had web orders shipped directly to a Canada Post office, highlighting the need for convenient fulfillment options in Canada.
“We are very proud to provide the same quality shopping experience with our new eCommerce site as found in our stores,” said Genevieve Bulgin, Director of Retail Operations at Eclipse. “Using the tools available to us through OrderDynamics, we’ve been able to greatly expand our business, and extend our commitment to customer service across Canada with our online channel”.
“Eclipse is a great example of a Canadian retailer that is using retail oriented commerce technology to streamline efficiencies and improve customer service,” added Michael Turcsanyi, President at OrderDynamics. “Their drive to create a best-of-breed omni-channel shopping experience puts them in a strong position to leverage its national reach for accelerated cross-channel growth.”
