Retail Sector

Running a successful eCommerce business is more than just creating and hosting an eCommerce web site. You need to start by creating an online strategy, then developing the business model, technology foundation, pricing framework, back-office integrations, and robust security measures necessary for success. California Olive Oil producer and retailer recognized they needed a strong partner to digitally transform their business by improving processes and technologies to enhance the customer experience

Client Challenge

The Olive Oil retailer was struggling with an unreliable eCommerce site that was negatively impacting their business in a myriad of ways. The eCommerce site lacked proper planning, integration with fulfillment and back-office processes, and the necessary security measures. Additional challenges included:

  1. eCommerce site was developed on an unstable platform, and the vendor could not provide the required support and site maintenance.
  2. Platform hindered scalability, new affiliate partnerships, and the subscription revenue model.
  3. Inconsistent customer experience between in-store and online experience.
  4. Poor back-end processes and no integration with SEO, customer loyalty program, shipping, and tracking hampered the customer experience.
  5.  Most in-house processes were manual and used discrete software applications without any integration.

These issues were impacting the company’s top and bottom line and limiting its growth potential.
