Australasian retail management software company Vend has recently announced a new partnership with e-commerce platform BigCommerce, giving tens of thousands of independent retailers around the globe access to more customers, and greater choice about how they run their business.
This union is seen to create an easier, more profitable way for SMEs and fast growing mid-sized retailers to compete with big businesses because they have the potential to reach billions more customers through new social media and online sales channels, while managing the day-to-day store operations with a seamless sync of sales, products, customers and inventory in real time.
Vend Country Manager for Australia, Dave Scheine stated, “The way consumers shop is changing faster than any other time in history. The competitive retail landscape is more complex and challenging than ever, but there is a massive opportunity for independent retailers around the globe to tap into technology to run their business more profitably. By partnering with the world’s leading cloud e-commerce solution, BigCommerce, Vend retailers can access sales, staff and inventory for all their stores anytime like never before, while creating additional sales opportunities via Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, eBay, Amazon and Google Shopping.”
BigCommerce Chief Development Officer, Russell Klein, commented as well on the partnership, “Retailers choose BigCommerce because we not only make it easy for them to reach their customers in all the places that matter most but also because we have an extensive network of industry-leading partnerships that further enhance our product offering. By partnering with Vend, BigCommerce is adding a world-class POS provider to our partner ecosystem, enabling us to better service the growing community of brick-and-mortar retailers around the world that are looking for a robust SaaS offering that supports both online and offline sales.”
