More service for you and your customers
Update 3.5 provides greater convenience for major customers and retailers in particular: the new module “Request quotation” permits your customers to obtain project-specific quotations in the shop and commence negotiations with you. The new consultation function is optimal for consulting with customers on-site. This practical feature enables retailers to use the shop as support when meeting with customers because at the push of a button the retailer’s individual prices are hidden.
Starting with Version 3.5, search also takes customer-specific item numbers into account. In practice this simply means that the shopper can locate a product both under the manufacturer SKU and the SKU under which the product is listed in your own system. In this context, it makes no difference if the customer uses search or the quick order form.
With update 3.5 silver.solutions has extended the communication between webshop and ERP system. This way shop owners can save both time and money. As one important example addresses that had always been the sole responsibility of the ERP can now be changed and deleted in shop system as well and will automatically be synchronised with the ERP. This is a big time-saver for your back office staff.
And while the shop has always been up to date on stock thanks to the direct connection to the ERP now silver.eShop is also able to inform customers about availability. Through a couple of clicks customers can create a notification to receive an e-mail once the item is back in stock.
A Newsletter2Go Plugin is available now for silver.eShop that makes it possible to directly link the shop with the Newsletter2Go e-mail marking solution. In Newsletter2Go, you can access selected data from your ERP and use this data to apply filters. For example, this permits you to segment your customers by shopping history, customer groups or other features and target them in a more focused manner. This means that there are no more barriers to successful, personalised e-mail campaigns.
The search statistics in the back-end offer even more key figures that can be used as part of ongoing shop optimisation. Of particular interest: The list of search terms the resulted in no or only a few hits. Update your product texts and synonym lists accordingly and access even greater sales potential.
