Bridgeport, CT - August 9, 2011 - GoECart®, the leader in delivering on-demand multi-channel ecommerce solutions, today announced it has won a 2011 Silver Innovation Prize from the Connecticut Quality Improvement Award (CQIA) Partnership, Inc. The prize was awarded for GoECart 360, the company's latest offering and the only end-to-end SaaS Ecommerce and Order Management System (OMS). GoECart has won this distinguished CQIA honor for the eighth year in a row.

"For four years even in an uncertain economy, GoECart has shown that forward-looking organizations continue to introduce new products and services, and bring them to market" said Sheila Carmine, Founder and Executive Director of Connecticut Quality Improvement Award Partnership, Inc.

GoECart 360 is a brand-new, end-to-end ecommerce platform that enables today's growing and medium-sized retailers to provide a superior online shopping experience while addressing the back office IT challenges. While there are scores of point solutions on the market, GoECart 360 is the only fully integrated SaaS ecommerce platform with built-in order and inventory & warehouse management capabilities targeted toward SMB merchants.

Specific innovations include:

  • A cutting-edge software architecture featuring the latest technologies - Microsoft.NET Framework 3.5, AJAX, and SQL Server 2008
  • A progressive order processing engine that allows merchants to process even hundreds of thousands of orders seamlessly
  • Enterprise-class order tracking with the ability to design custom workflows for each sales channel
  • Fully customizable order fulfillment with advanced authorization and processing of returns
  • A single unified interface for management of web (ecommerce, affiliate networks), traditional media (TV, radio), telephone (MOTO), and targeted email campaigns (up and cross-selling, marketing to repeat buyers)
  • Integration with Monsoon technology allowing GoECart merchants to sell on Amazon.com, eBay, Buy.com, and other leading marketplaces
  • Plug and play shipping integration with UPS® Online Tools, USPS® (Endicia), and FedEx®
  • Advanced shipping & receiving support that lets warehouse users interact with the system in real time to perform pick, pack, and ship operations
  • Groundbreaking supply chain automation that lets users "peer into" shelves and bins at warehouse locations to determine available stock on hand
  • Inventive stock tracking features that automatically replenish stock via suppliers, update quantities across channels, and send notifications when stock falls below a certain threshold

The above is in addition to hundreds of ecommerce software features, an award-winning storefront design, integrated customer relationship management (CRM), and pre-built integration with dozens of industry leading ecommerce partners.

More than 250 GoECart merchants are looking forward to leveraging GoECart 360 to drive sales and increase operational efficiency. The new platform is sure to be a boon for GoECart, enabling the company to blaze new trails in the middle markets

Addressing the 2011 CQIA winners, Lt. Governor Nancy Wyman wrote, "These are exactly the kind of businesses - and the kind of people behind them - that our economy needs right now, and Governor Malloy and I are committed to helping them and CQIA succeed."
