BestRetail's Enterprise Features Are Second To None
Take a guided tour of our SaaS based software below.
At the heart of every Ecommerce platform is the product catalog, and BestRetail is no different. Our product catalog is robust, scalable, SEO optimized, and rich with features. We've got the basics covered with intelligent product zoom, alternate colors with separate swatch images, alternate product views, dynamic pricing, and Quick View functionality.
Our merchandising engine is highly configurable, letting you merchandise categories with different rules per category. Sale products automatically go into a self-building Sale heirarchy to make your job managing the catalog easier, and enabling your shoppers to find the products they are looking for quickly and easily.
Perhaps the most critical part of your Ecommerce store is how your order processing works. Thankfully we've already got that figured out for you by offering the right amount of options so it's not too confusing, while having a complete set of features so that you don't need to log into your payment processor's website to perform any activity.
Since we're fully integrated with multiple payment processors including PayPal, all payment transactions (pre-auths, sales, credits, returns) take place right inside the admin site.
Your Ecommerce site should be more than just a product catalog and shopping cart. It needs to be rich and engaging, and tell visitors about your company and why they should buy from you and not someone else. You need a robust Content Management System that is directly tied into your store so that you can add new pages and content easily and quickly. It's also important for updating your policies, FAQs, shipping information and of course the legal stuff.
Thankfully, BestRetail's CMS is integrated directly within the software so you can add pages and widgets, update SEO titles and meta information, manage your site navigation and site map, and so much more.
An Ecommerce platform wouldn't be worth anything without a robust Reporting engine. With BestRetail, you get a whole suite of reports that help you reconcile your business and manage your site like never before. And since we've integrated so much directly into the platform, your reporting accurately reflects all transactions without needing to download spreadsheets from various systems and try to match them up.
Besides transaction related reports (like sales, conversions, inventory, returns, etc), we also have reports that help you manage your Ecommerce site better, like a missing images report and a search activity report. You can use these types of reports to find out what people are doing on your site and make adjustments to help improve shoppability and conversion rates like never before!
This is where many experts would say the rubber meets the road. The ability for your Ecommerce platform to integrate with other providers is key to the success of the site. Chances are, if you're reading this right now, we're hard at work on integrating a new vendor into BestRetail. Since we launched we've built integrations with over 30 different platforms and we're always building more. Check out our partners page for a full list of 3rd party vendors with whom we have an existing integration. Don't see one on the list, just let us know and we'll put it on our radar.
Wouldn't it be great if customers bought your products and you never had to deal with returns? Sure it would, but that's not realistic which is why we built a robust returns engine right into BestRetail. Customers go online into their order history and initiate a return and print return packing instructions. You get notified that the customer is initiating a return so you can be ready for it when it arrives in your warehouse. Then you simply go back into the admin site, add some notes, complete the return, and credit the customer. Easy Peasy!
Every SEO expert will tell you that in order to rank highly on the search engines, you need a blog on your site and you need to keep it updated. The hard part might be thinking up ideas for blog entries, but the easy part is that BestRetail already has a fully integrated Blog engine built right into the software. No need to go out and find 3rd party blog software. This is just another example where we make it easy for you to manage your site.
Embedded within our Product Catalog is our Reviews engine. Product reviews bring your site to life, allowing your customers to add content and help communicate information to other potential buyers.
Yes you have control! You probably don't want to publicize your negative reviews, yet you want to know about it so you can fix the problem. Just configure the Reviews engine to email you whenever someone posts a new review for your approval to be published on the site.
Pair your marketing campaigns with coded or codeless discounts and entice your customers to shop 'til they drop. Coded discounts let you track your campaigns to see what is working and what is not, and codeless discounts make it easy for your customers to get a great deal without having to enter any extra info.
Full scheduling functionality is included so you can activate and disable your discounts in sync with your marketing. Or maybe you want to reward customers with 10% off their next order for joining the mailing list. Use discounts as creatively or as simple as you like, with BestRetail, the power is in your hands.
