SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 21, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Webgility, the leader in multi-channel e-commerce software, today announced a record quarter for customer revenue and activity. Leading the adoption trend are members of the emerging niche economy — small, independent retailers who are building entire industries around specific offerings ranging from coffee roasting to horse grooming.
"The days of online retailers trying to be everything to everyone are over," said Parag Mamnani, founder and CEO, Webgility. "Small retailers are recognizing that you don't have to be like Amazon to compete with Amazon. All you need to do is tap into the incredibly targeted market needs and software solutions that now exists to build the business of your dreams, finding not just revenue but personal satisfaction along the way. Webgility's solution, Unify, helps companies focus on their business rather than their data management. We're glad to see more and more companies finding success by embracing our solution in record amounts."
One such niche economy success story is KeyBar, a patented key holder that works like a multi-tool for keys, letting people simplify how they carry their keys. Founded in 2013, KeyBar found rapid growth in both brick-and-mortar stores and a variety of online stores. By 2014, the company had grown to international distribution and was struggling to automate their e-commerce orders. Through online reviews and recommendations from other online sellers, the KeyBar team discovered Webgility's Unify software.
Since integrating Unify into their business workflows, the KeyBar team has enjoyed quick, accurate, and easy downloading of their e-commerce orders into the appropriate QuickBooks accounts. Not only did they save time and increase accuracy, they've also enjoyed better perspective of their financials and gained the inevitable strategic insight that comes with being able to view sales and inventory from one location. KeyBar can now process orders within 24 hours, even in their peak season, and have gone from a few hundred to more than 1,400 units shipped per month.
"Unify does exactly what we need it to do at a cost that is extremely reasonable," said Jessica Taylor, co-owner, KeyBar. "It saves us time and manpower and allows us to accurately track our sales. And the customer support in phenomenal. We feel like we are living a dream — the American dream."
