PHILADELPHIA--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--WebLinc, the eCommerce platform and services provider for the fastest growing online retailers, today announced that it has developed and re-launched the eCommerce site for Becker’s School Supplies, enabling the company to quickly accelerate its online business. Within months of launching the new site at www.ShopBecker.com, the company experienced a 120 percent jump in revenue compared to the same period last year and saw transaction volume increase by 81 percent.
“With decades of experience, Becker’s has demonstrated that they understand their market and their customers”
“As a family-run business that was founded in the 1920s, Becker’s has always been focused on providing personal and attentive service, a philosophy that naturally extends to our online storefront. After a decade online, it was time to introduce a new site with cutting-edge functionally for our customers, and WebLinc delivered exactly what we needed,” said Robert Bonczkiewicz, catalog manager at Becker’s. ”It’s exciting to see this level of success especially before launching pay-per-click and other advertising campaigns to capture new customers. Once our strategy is in full swing, we anticipate even higher growth."
Built with new, lightweight technologies that provide a fully branded user experience and powerful merchandising and management tools on the back end, the new site has increased Becker’s online performance at a time when analysts predict stagnant activity in its sector of the retail market. “We expect a moderate back-to-school season and are not predicting major increases over 2012,” said Sarah Quinlan, senior vice president, market insights at MasterCard Advisors during an August 2013 interview.
“With decades of experience, Becker’s has demonstrated that they understand their market and their customers,” said Darren Hill, co-founder and CEO of WebLinc. “The company has a history of providing the best personal service and delivering a high-quality print catalog, and now they’re uniquely poised to become a fast-growing online retailer as well. We’re proud that WebLinc has been able to quickly help them achieve that vision and look forward to helping enable the company’s future success.”
