SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif., May 12, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- OnTarget 2011 is a wrap.
A record number of branded manufacturers, fulfillment partners and industry experts attended Shopatron's annual client conference last week in Shell Beach, Calif., soaking up the sun and more than two dozen presentations focused around the theme: sell more through world-class customer experiences.
During the conference sessions on May 5-6, experts from both Shopatron and some of the company's partners led discussions on topics such as online marketing, mobile commerce, product reviews, product video and how to leverage Shopatron tools to improve customer experiences and increase overall sales.
Shopatron also unveiled some upcoming product offerings to its network, including a Shopatron mobile app for local order processing, a gift certificates pilot and updates to the store checkout – including guest checkout, PayPal payments and Italian checkout support.
"Brands, multi-door retailers, fulfillment partners, and everyone who participated came away with simple and actionable ways to improve their eCommerce program," said Ed Stevens, Shopatron Founder and CEO. "We were also able to gather our clients' collective vision on the future of retail-integrated eCommerce. With the help of this insight, we'll continue innovating new ways to provide the richest customer experience on the web."
Along with the formal presentations, Shopatron experts held one-on-one consultations with clients to answer questions about the network, eCommerce and online marketing strategy.
