The next-generation software solutions from softer supplier Epicor are set to make it easy for builders’ merchants to establish an online storefront and serve customers more efficiently and effectively.
Epicor Commerce Connect (ECC) for BisTrack enables builders’ merchants to create unique e-Commerce stores quickly—providing all the tools needed to facilitate an exceptional online customer experience that drives new growth.
A robust cloud-based e-Commerce platform, ECC for BisTrack can deliver a consumer-like and fully branded e-Commerce site, aimed at those customers who prefer their transactions to be online.
“ECC for BisTrack can help a merchant build an online presence for a much smaller investment than a bricks and mortar showroom,” says Mark Hughes, regional vice president UK & Ireland. “It can help them compete with Internet-only retailers who are making waves in the marketplace but don’t have the distribution, knowledge, and expertise builders’ merchants can take advantage of.
“However, it’s important to recognise that e-Commerce goes beyond simply adding an online store to a website. Today’s systems deliver powerful end-to-end functionality that can support the fast-paced business goals of digital distributors—such as increased productivity, growth, and differentiation,” he continues.
The ECC platform extends Epicor BisTrack with a tightly integrated e-Commerce business solution that eliminates multiple product databases and the need for duplicate data entry. Integrating with business processes in real-time, all information is mastered from the enterprise resource planning (ERP) system and completed online transactions are automatically reflected in the ERP system.
Built on the power of the Magento® open source e-Commerce platform, ECC for BisTrack makes it possible to build and manage custom websites for the business needs of today and into the future. It provides organisations with the flexibility to add new capabilities and apps from the Magento Marketplace as they grow, without being locked into one vendor’s ecosystem.
