When TransAct is partnering with web developers, we take the time to learn what their clients need. Whether it is online ordering, secure payment portals, or integration between in-store retail inventory and online depletion, we cover it all.
If you are in the process of developing a new website or looking to enhance your current one keep these three things in mind.
1. Online Security
Today online security is more important than ever. Cyber attacks are happening every single day. Your retail, restaurant or services website must be secure regardless of whether you are processing financial transactions, or not. In this area of business, security must go even further than PCI compliance.
2. Keeping Track of Inventory
Having the right inventory management in place is critical to your business. Partnering with web developers is critical and working together, keeping inventory on hand is easier than ever. During the inventory and shipment stresses of the last few years, using our tools made it feasible to predict inventory sell through, and adapt to replenishment lead times.
Our robust reporting tools integrate real-time connectivity to your POS system, automatic QuickBooks record keeping, reporting for management team, and supplier technology. All of this is important to keep your business in stock with everything you need.
3. E-commerce Shopping Experience
Since e-commerce began over 20 years ago, the user or shopper experience has continued to evolve. Being able to buy online and pick up in store (BOPIS), choose delivery to your home or a local pick up spot are just a few of the latest options. Consider also the predictive suggestions, cart callbacks and follow up marketing as a must in today’s e-commerce and online shopping.
Working in conjunction and partnering with web developers, we help them to choose the right platforms from the beginning. This allows the design to take advantage of the right tools, integrate apps and plugins that work for your business. We take the heaving lifting on the payment side, so they can focus on the design, user experience and keep your site up to date and loading fast. If you are in the process of building your first e-commerce website, ready to enhance or replace the one you have be sure to check out the partnerships we have first. Contact us today for a referral.
