360° Webstore

360° Webstore is the next logical step for any retailer wanting to remain competitive in today’s marketplace.  It provides retailers with the ability to have a 24/7 sales operation without incurring the overheads of having staff available in a brick and mortar location.  Customers can enjoy an enhanced shopping experience with multimedia content and detailed product information from any location.  Multiple shipping and payment options provide choice and flexibility.

The Serious About Retail Webstore is fully integrated with the Serious About Retail Back Office ensuring seamless synchronisation with the physical retail operation while simplifying web catalogue maintenance.

The Webstore can also be implemented as a stand-alone store for customers who exclusively need a web based presence, be it for the purpose of retail sales transactions or purely to provide a point of presence and product display area.  The Webstore features a full blown content management system enabling customers to build their entire website around it.

We provide fully hosted Webstores, allowing you to have a fully fledged webstore without the costs associated with having your own web server and IT resources.
