Retail automation vendor Profitsystems has partnered with MicroD and The Lively Merchant on e-Showroom an advanced Web solution designed to help their customers sell additional product, more effectively and efficiently. e-Showroom enables retailers using Profitprofessional software to integrate and cross reference their inventory flawlessly with vendor catalogs and display them directly on their new e-commerce enabled Web site. The partnership will utilize the ePiphany Web site platform developed by MicroD. "Retailers can harness the power of three industry leaders in one Web solution," said Shelley Parlin, COO for Profitsystems. "Through e-Showroom, our clients can establish brand awareness, increase traffic levels, and maximize their advertising dollars by adding the equivalent of a second store without the building expense." "This partnership gives retailers the strongest possible solution for their internet presence," said Manoj Nigam, president of MicroD. "We can help them connect to their customers and provide an easy to use shopping experience. Retailers will have control over their website, email marketing, and products shown without having to invest excessive time to maintain it." David McMahon, director of e-solutions for Profitsystems said: What this means for retailers is that they can have a web solution that is easy to maintain with product that can be sold. From Web site development, provided by The Lively Merchant, to customer follow-up, this one solution can meet all of the retailer’s needs. Their website is now relevant to the customer and salesperson. That allows for a huge ROI in terms of increased sales and decreased cost."
