ECi Releases Its Re-Engineered Web Storefront, ECinteractivePLUS™

16 Jul, 2013

Fort Worth, TX –July 16, 2013 - ECi Software Solutions, a leader in industry-specific information technology solutions, today announced the release of its re-engineered flagship Web storefront software, ECinteractivePLUS™.

Key competitive changes in ECinteractivePLUS are based on shifts in user-centered e-commerce design:
• A prominent top search bar expedites the shopper’s main task, looking for products
• Moving navigation menus from the left side to the top makes room for more intuitive shopping by product category and attribute
• Customizable merchandising zones let dealers market their brand, services and products in a fresh, visual format that promotes shopper engagement and repeat visits
• The theater slide show can automatically hide slides from shoppers such as government agency buyers who are restricted from purchasing the product in question
• Shoppers have more flexibility in sorting their favorite items by number or description, shopping by category, and viewing a summary of frequently ordered items
Behind the scenes, ECinteractivePLUS was rebuilt with simplicity, speed and scalability in mind:
• A streamlined carting and checkout flow on shopping pages dynamically presents data such as item quantities and recommended accessories—all without additional page loads
• Auto-save, dynamic content updates, and smart buttons result in fewer clicks and page loads overall; the cart summary instantly indicates when the shopper has added an item, and the "add to cart" button changes to an "add more" button, without requiring a confirmation page load
• Smarter item lists mean fewer steps for the shopper—the search results automatically upsell and cross-sell similar items or customer-specific substitute items without a separate page load
• Significant code changes result in important page content loading faster
• Implementation and launch are simple for dealers because ECinteractivePLUS uses the same administrative control panel and databases as the original ECinteractive® servers

“ECi remains dedicated to supporting the entrepreneurial spirit of independent dealers with game-changing software technology,” said Trevor Gruenewald, Chief Operating Officer of ECi Software Solutions. “ECinteractivePLUS is not just another pretty interface. It’s a powerful e-commerce solution that we carefully redesigned and re-engineered to ensure that demanding B2B customers have a great shopping experience. In turn their dealers enjoy a state-of-the-art Web storefront that makes it easier to compete and stay profitable.”
