Leverage the Benefits of Online Shopping with a Branded Company Store

 

People now shop online to order everything, from books to groceries, which all end up delivered straight to their door. We’re going to discuss some of the benefits of online shopping, and how setting up a virtual store can leverage these benefits in a corporate setting.

Convenience

In an age where almost everything can be looked up and purchased via a smartphone or laptop, it is no wonder that online stores provide the most convenient shopping experience. Consumers are able to browse multiple sites to find the products they need when it fits into their busy day, even when they are away from their office or computer. Although websites lack a physical salesman, questions can be answered quickly and efficiently by a phone call or email. When setting up a company store, your employees, administrators, and clients have the ability to order 24/7.

Another benefit to online shopping is the obvious convenience of not having to leave your home or office to trek to the store. Virtual ordering allows shopping and communication anywhere in the world. You are no longer limited to purchasing behavior based on physical location restrictions, making it easy to browse and buy wherever you have internet access.

Customization

The Virtual Ordering Solutions division of Drew & Rogers creates online stores for our clients’ print, packaging, and promotional items. For example, franchisees across the country are able to order print collateral and marketing materials online and customize the corporate design with appropriate names, addresses, and pricing details for their specific location. Before placing the order, you also get to view and approve an online proof to make sure the product is exactly the way you want it. Business cards, menus, brochures, postcards, and more can be added to an online ordering system, which is especially useful for industries such as franchises, retail, and insurance companies with multiple locations and/or a large sales force.

Organization

When ordering online, you usually receive a receipt via email and are able to see reporting through your banking or credit card statements. An online company store from Drew & Rogers provides businesses with an even more robust set of reporting tools. This added layer of reporting includes the ability to review who placed the order, how much was spent, the associated cost centers, and fulfillment timeframes.

Online marketing portals are provided for entire sales organizations to enhance efficiency and productivity within the business. No longer do staff members have to find a local printer for business cards, or use the wrong logo, that doesn’t meet style guide requirements, to have them printed. All of the orders are controlled through the company store using approved artwork and printers.

Similar to online retail marketplaces, our company web stores have products organized in categories and sub-categories for easy navigation and faster product identification and ordering. This is especially useful for companies with a large portfolio of collateral that expands across multiple marketing campaigns and print mediums.
