Leading golf retailer upgrades to UniteU’s integrated omnichannel solution
Rochester, NY (PRWEB) October 21, 2014
UniteU announced today, the successful launch of Worldwide Golf Shops’ web properties on its leading omnichannel platform. Worldwide Golf Enterprises is a privately held company, one of the nation’s largest golf specialty retailers and is the parent company of Edwin Watts Golf Shops, Roger Dunn Golf Shops, Golfer’s Warehouse, The Golf Mart, Uinta Golf and Van’s Golf Shops. Specifically, the launch includes both eCommerce websites and Hybrid Responsive™ mobile commerce sites.
The new sites constitute the first fully-integrated deployment for Worldwide Golf. “UniteU integrates with existing retail systems so that it is connected to all inventory, accounting, ERP, point-of-sale and other systems,” said Soumen Das, CEO at UniteU. Worldwide Golf Shops recently upgraded to Retail Pro® 9 and needed a solution that would seamlessly tie into the retail management software. “With UniteU in place all systems are kept up-to-date in real-time.”
“This integration makes it easy for our team members to do their jobs,” said Andre Brysha, Director of eCommerce at Worldwide Golf Enterprises. The UniteU Commerce™ platform syncs with Retail Pro® product descriptions, images, attributes, options, pricing, promotions and more – making it easy to keep web and mobile sites up-to-date. This also makes a big difference for consumers. “By making sure the latest information is available to our customers we’re providing them with a better shopping experience. They can now see the latest updates in products and pricing in real-time,” said Brysha.
UniteU’s Hybrid Responsive™ design is an additional feature that changes the shopping experience for consumers. UniteU was recognized this year by Internet Retailer as a “Pioneering Vendor” in the highly competitive mCommerce space. The company’s Hybrid Responsive™ technology makes mobile commerce sites “blazingly-fast” according to Internet Retailer. “Studies have already shown that faster mCommerce sites yield higher conversion rates,” said Soumen Das. “That’s because consumers have come to expect immediate results when browsing via mobile phones and tablets.”
Turning to UniteU for their digital needs also means that Worldwide Golf Shops has access to UniteU’s other modular omnichannel solutions that tie digital and in-store initiatives together; such as their mobile point-of-sale solution and other emerging technologies. “Knowing that we have access to UniteU’s full suite of omnichannel solutions and can quickly leverage them to stay competitive within the evolving retail landscape, is one of the reasons we chose the UniteU Commerce™ platform” continues Brysha.
As highlighted in UniteU’s recently announced Merchant Warehouse certification for Retail Pro® users, this new deployment includes full integration for card-not-present processing for eCommerce and mCommerce business. Additionally, the certifications cover gift card transactions for supported Merchant Warehouse providers, including Smart Transaction Systems (STS), Valutec and Givex. PayPal, Amazon Payments and the new Google Wallet®, as well as dynamic tax calculation and fraud detection services from other major integration partners such as CyberSource® are included.
“We’re excited about being able to provide our customers with the best online shopping experience possible, and this integration makes that a reality,” said Andre Brysha.
