Omnichannel customers are more valuable ...
They spent an average of 4% more on every shopping occasion in the store and 10% more online than single-channel customers.
Even more compelling ...
With every additional channel they used, the shoppers spent more money in the store. For example, customers who used 4+ channels spent 9% more in the store, on average, when compared to those who used just one channel.
Bigger shopping baskets ...
Within six months after an omnichannel shopping experience, these customers had logged 23% more repeat shopping trips to the retailer's stores and were more likely to recommend the brand to family and friends than those who used a single channel.

By offering Click & Collect, you not only open up your phyiscal store to your Ecommerce customers but you also enable your in-store customers the convenience of checking item availbility before making a journey to your store. This'll mean that your customers' experiences are efficient and stress-free.

Why Click & Collect?

The price is no longer the only consideration of purchases, convenience and service are becoming more important to today's customer. You need to fulfil orders to keep customers coming back.

In order to fulfil the customers need for convenience the process needs to be a properly managed one. If a customer is met with confusion, lost products and delays they will likely think again before purchasing from you again. For this reason our Click & Collect process is designed for ease and simplicity.

How does it work?

By integrating the process with stock levels across all channels keeps the process as streamline as possible. Having live stock information means that you will never sell a product you don't have, avoiding dissatisfied customers. When an item is ordered online it will automatically be assigned for collection in store. This makes the process very efficient so the customer can pick up the product as soon as possible. This offers a great service to those who need an item straight away.

The automated service instantly notifies the staff in store via the till of a click and collect order and whether or not the item is paid for. Accurate, timely information within an organised process confines errors and avoids time wasting.

The customer is provided with an accurate time by which the product will be ready. Pick up within an hour for those items you need instantly, with the guarantee the item is in stock. As a retailer you can still sell items that are out of stock or at a different location, the system will amend the pick up time accordingly. And with our Supplier Integration Module it has never been easier to not lose sales due to no stock.
