“We are pleased to be speaking at the RIS conference,” said Sport Chalet’s Jackson. “Shopatron has been a valuable partner for us in multiple areas of our new eCommerce experience and we’re happy to help others understand the benefits of the Coex Private Order Exchange approach to solving in-store pickup and ship-from-store. We have integrated Shopatron’s capabilities into our order flow, messaging to customers, as well as customer service."
The 3rd annual Cross-Channel Executive Summit will take place September 30th – October 2nd, 2009 at Charleston Place in Charleston, South Carolina. This invitation-only event combines an executive setting with an agenda focused on strategic business and technology imperatives critical to retailers operating in a multi-channel marketplace.
“We are pleased with how well the market has reacted to our unique approach to multi-channel fulfillment,” said Brian Clausen, Shopatron’s Senior Vice President of eCommerce Strategy. “Coex Private, an order exchange, makes it easy for retailers to expand delivery options to include in-store pickup, ship-to-store and ship-from-store. Utilizing local stores increases online conversion, drives foot traffic into stores and expands the pool of inventory available to fulfill online orders.”
