AUSTIN, Texas, January 11, 2019 — Shopgate, Inc. today announced the launch of a new suite of modern commerce solutions designed to activate the vision of innovative retailers pursuing an omnichannel strategy. These solutions will help retailers drive in-store traffic, lift revenue, and create the ultimate customer experience, all while reducing the total cost of ownership. Powered by the Shopgate Connect platform, these new commerce solutions are specifically designed for the custom needs and extensibility of retailers. What’s more, Shopgate’s solutions give forward-thinking retailers the edge needed to build true omnichannel experiences that today’s consumers demand.
Shopgate’s new suite of commerce solutions includes:
Engage – Consumer Mobile App
Built for the consumer on the go, Engage increases conversion rates, average order value (AOV) and customer retention by letting consumers shop when and where they want, with features like:
Push notifications targeting consumers based on behavior and location
Buy online pickup in-store (BOPUIS) or return to store (BORIS)
Geofencing to engage nearby customers
Multiple digital wallet payment options and single login between sales channels
QR code and barcode scanners

Communication with shoppers outside the store via targeted push notifications, in-app chat and targeted SMS
Real-time analytics on customer behavior including location visits, duration, AOV and store associate integration
Deliver – Omnichannel Order Fulfillment
Created to implement fulfillment centers within stores, Deliver allows customers to pick up and return products at their convenience:

Automate email, SMS and push notifications to keep customers updated on order progress
Real-time analytics on order status, workflows, overall cycle time, locations handling and customer engagement
Offering true omnichannel experiences with mobile as the centerpiece will continue to be the new normal for savvy retailers. Omnichannel strategies – including cross-channel capabilities, robust mobile app features and multiple fulfilment options – are a must for retailers who want to drive consumer’s in-store and turn their physical locations into highly efficient fulfilment centers. According to Shopgate’s recent omnichannel retailer study, nearly 70% of retailers say omnichannel retailing is a priority in 2019. The Shopgate survey also reports that BOPUIS, mobile apps and clienteling rank the highest in retailer priorities, indicating the need for a commerce solution that fulfills the “anywhere, anytime” shopping experience that consumers are demanding.
“Retailers must have the ability to offer consumers a seamless omnichannel experience throughout all touchpoints. That doesn’t stop with buying on mobile. It must include connecting to brick-and-mortars for clienteling-powered personal consultations and the ability to pick up and return items in-store,” said Marc Biel, CEO, Shopgate. “We are thrilled to introduce this new suite of modern commerce solutions to give forward-thinking retailers game-changing results with an easy-to-use, customizable and cost-effective platform.”
Additionally, in early 2018, Shopgate launched a new partner program to certify and onboard technology and solutions providers in anticipation of the new omnichannel solutions. The partner program is designed for systems integrators, technology providers, and eCommerce platforms who are committed to delivering world-class commerce solutions to their customers. Shopgate’s certified early-access partners include Echidna, Adeo Web, DEPlabs, Ignitiv, and Atmosol.
