'GoECart 360' Helps Retailers Capitalize on $600 Billion Market Opportunity for Food and Drink
November 18, 2015, Bridgeport CT - GoECart, the leading unified commerce platform provider, announced today that several features of its all-in-one commerce suite are an ideal fit for the Food and Beverage industry. The features enable merchants in this lucrative retail category to capitalize on the growing trend that fuses online and offline commerce.
GoECart’s CEO, Manish Chowdhary said, “GoECart 360 is the ultimate solution for Food and Beverage merchants, because it enables retailers with innovative features on the storefront that are truly unique for this industry plus the robust backend functionality merchants need to rival their larger competitors. The Food and Beverage category has unique needs and merchants now can deliver a truly differentiated customer shopping experience rather than trying to fit into existing packaged software.”
According to a recent report from Business Insider, the $600 billion dollar a year Food and Beverage industry is the largest retail category in the U.S. by a wide margin, and another study from research portal Statista shows growth of Food and Beverage online commerce sales alone more than doubling from $5.3 billion in 2012 to a projected $10.9 billion in 2018.
The GoECart 360 unified commerce suite provides a host of features that are a real coup for Food and Beverage retailers. These include:
Since implementing GoECart, Texas-based food and beverage retailer Goode Company has seen their ecommerce conversion rates skyrocket. Revenues are up 12.5 percent over last year. In addition, GoECart’s improved back office functionality increased productivity by 50 percent, and the company took more orders during the 2014 holiday season with just half the staff. Perhaps best of all, the company’s average Order Value (AOV) has climbed 11 percent.
Rudy Fernandez, CFO of Goode Company, said, “GoECart is more than just a software vendor to us. They are innovators and problem solvers. GoECart has quickly become our trusted ecommerce advisor. They deliver on-time, within budget and with incredible passion and leadership. It’s rare to find such a combination of technology talent and business acumen.”
