fulfilmentcrowd and EKM strike sales platform partnership
Two UK ecommerce firms have joined forces to offer merchants with more webshop services. Preston-based ecommerce website provider ekm and Chorley-based fulfilmentcrowd struck the deal following integration of the companies’ respective platforms. The partnership will see webshop customers being able to make use of fulfilmentcrowd’s cost-effective checkout, stock management and order dispatch process.
fulfilmentcrowd is an online order fulfilment specialist, offering a range of logistics management services for multi-channel online retailers. Its UK fulfilment centres have a total warehousing capacity of more than 100,000 sq ft, with a high density picking system and automated dispatch conveyors.
They say that fulfilmentcrowd’s cloud-based platform augments EKM’s online features with intelligent purchasing tools, total stock visibility and automated order processing. The availability of stock across fulfilmentcrowd’s centres is displayed in real-time on integrated EKM websites and customers can track the progress of their order through to delivery.
EKM offers a service to create ecommerce websites with a fixed-fee offering that includes hosting, content management, payments, product sourcing and marketing advice. They claim to be the first cloud-based ecommerce platform in the UK and still the biggest, having set-up 70,000 shops worldwide, which generate over half a billion pounds in sales every year.
We are excited to be partnering with fulfilmentcrowd. Now EKM customers can take their online operation to the next level without having to invest in large warehouses or storage facilities. EKM customers have always needed cost-effective storage and fulfilment. fulfilmentcrowd ticks all the boxes.
