We Build Custom eCommerce Alert Systems

eCommerce is a highly competitive business and continues to grow as more users gain access to the internet and the confidence to make online purchases. The competition for attention online means eCommerce businesses cannot afford to waste the time they get with visitors window shopping on their site. 

eCommerce sites need to collect data from various touchpoints to drive efficiency and spend capital both human and financial on certain trends to leverage better returns. The only way to identify these trends is to gather data, have it processed and alerts sent out to buyers, warehouses and other key business areas based on certain rule sets. 

By having alerts on certain consumer touch points such as:

  • Products viewed 
  • Products added to wish list
  • Products out of stock
  • Products added to baskets
  • Products sold 
  • Products returned
  • Products reviewed 

You can make strategic decisions that can benefit business operations and improve profitability. Using these data points and others based on your service, you can feed your recommendation engine to provide results such as alternative brands, price ranges, combination buying and more. 

An eCommerce alert system is a great way to drive sales, improve average order value, reduce stock holding times, reduce amount of aged stock, improve average basket size and even reduce return purchases.
