  • Customised design

    Stand out from your competitors and avoid a cookie cutter look and feel with a completely unique design in line with your business and brand.

  • Rich Marketing Tools

    Increase conversions, loyalty and customer satisfaction through offers, promotions and merchandising tailored uniquely for each customer.

  • Personalised Content

    Serve personalised content, offers, promotions, emails, adverts, and pricing throughout the customer journey, each and every time they visit your site.

  • Content Management

  • Invoicing

    Give customers full details of invoices online, including shipping & billing addresses, order date, payment due date, PO number, details of every item ordered, balance of each individual item and the total order. Outstanding invoices can be added to the basket and paid for with a credit note or a credit or debit card.

  • Vendor Managed Inventory

    Enables customers to maintain an agreed inventory of products at any and each of their locations and deliver simple replenishment when the stock holding falls below the agreed threshold. When the merchant undertakes a stock check any shortfall is then ordered online against that location and account, at an agreed timescale.

  • Price List Manager

    Merchants can set the % value (₊/-) against parent price lists for products, product groups and customers. The engine auto calculates the child pricing and assigns. Can also apply delivery costs, discounts, offer bands, gift options and advert basket price conditions across price lists or on a currency level.

  • Back Orders

    Access full details of any back orders by searching through them based on customer, company, order or product. Enable various actions to be executed based on any changes to the status of that back order, including sending an email to the customer when the status changes or there's an increment/decrement of the items they are waiting for.

  • MOQs

    It's not always viable for businesses to sell some items in low volume. Set a minimum order quantity for any product as well as adding rules and workflows around alerting customers to this, and managing stock based on these restrictions.

  • Quantity Breaks

    Incentivise your trade customers to spend more by offering quantity based discounts per product. This enables you to lower the unit cost based on the amount they buy (e.g. 1-9 for £12 each, >10 for £10 each).

  • Quotation System

    Online quote request and convert to order operating either independently or in conjunction with an ecommerce basket. Merchants can drive quotes from call centre, set specific pricing and then push to customers via my account and email that they can convert to an order.

  • Individual Credit Limits

    Set individual credit limits for customer accounts and allow them to buy online through an ecommerce enabled website.

  • Re-ordering

    Enable quick and easy re-ordering with saved baskets, quick order pad and regularly ordered items lists.

  • My Account

    Provide customers with a dedicated 24/7/365 self-service portal containing all information including billing, order history, credit limits, payment terms and much more.

  • Quantity Steps

    Each product can be sold in fixed quantities (e.g. 5, 10, 15) with workflows and rules to alert customers and manage stock.

  • Master & Sub Accounts

    Control ordering and spending capabilities of all regional sites from a central location, including approvals system and credit limits.

  • Remote Order Capture

    Give your sales team remote access to the call centre tools (via tablet or laptop) so they can build quotes and create orders for customers on site.
