E-commerce applications have come a long way since their inception on pizza and florist sites over a decade ago, and Deepend has been there every step of the way – helping traditional e-commerce evolve from the basic lead-generation forms of the 90s into the fully business-integrated social solutions available today.
This is why we understand that initiating sales digitally doesn’t mean the process ends with your website – we know it must seamlessly flow into inventory management, fulfilment and returns, CRM, POS and billing systems. In addition, it must be secure, PCI compliant and comprise a clear administration system that is easy for call-centre staff to understand.
And we understand business logic. In between the cold, hard product data and the warm, fuzzy user-interface, we create a middleware layer of intelligence that helps customers shop the way they want to shop – while you promote, combine, recommend and analyse.
Deepend can design and implement algorithms to enhance your business and improve ROI – from coupons to distressed inventory, and automatic deal combination recognition to socialised theatre seat-selections.
We are experts in systems integrations – making sense of the maze of technical components needed to run a digital business. We have relationships with a number of key technology providers for ticketing platforms such as Tessitura and ENTA, payment gateways such as SecurePay and EWay and also POS systems such as Siriusware and MICROS-Fidelio Opera.
And we are excited by the constant evolution of online opportunities emerging. As the debate rages on whether social commerce on Facebook will ever truly take off; group-purchasing sites continue to be an incredible success story.
Freemium services have blossomed through the micro-payment technologies built into the app stores of Apple, Facebook and Google – in fact in 2011 Google saw the revenue from freemium services in its Chrome Web Store overtake that of traditional e-commerce.
The gradual rise of the semantic web through Google's ‘Rich Snippets’ and Facebook's ‘Open Graph’ is also shining a spotlight on rich product data, enabling customers to more easily find, evaluate and share product intelligence.
Projected virtual pop-up storefronts, NFC adshells, QR codes and other emerging technologies are also bringing the e-commerce revolution to the street, and Deepend can help you structure your online presence to take advantage of these incredible new and emerging opportunities.
