Being heard in a loud and fast world

An age-old and somewhat martial saying in the corporate world is: "If you don't advertise, you die." Sounds harsh, doesn't it? Well, maybe because it's true. Retailers and companies live not only by putting together good offers, but also by presenting them to interested customers. And the digital shop window has become just as important as the physical one in the shopping mall. But how do companies really present themselves in a digital world that can be perceived as overstimulating?


With these challenges

fight traders:


Choosing the right channels

The internet is vast and there are inexhaustible ways to communicate. But not all channels make equal sense. Simply because they don't reach your customers. But how do you get into conversation with your own customers and above all: where are you seen?


Data processing

Having data and making data usable are two very different challenges. It is precisely retailers who use data effectively that can accompany their own customers unerringly when they shop and turn them into regular customers. But where do you start?


Making local offers visible

Even the best product at the best price can become a slow seller if it is not discovered by anyone. Therefore, all goods and products of a retailer must be visible where customers can find them. But how do you get product data securely and easily onto the web?


Synchronise stock levels

Is the item available directly in the store? This is the question many customers ask themselves before they decide to visit a store. But for this to happen, local store data must be synchronised with your online offers in almost real time. And please do it automatically!


Bringing digital customers into the storees

Visitors to your online offers are great! But it is even more great when these users become people who enter your shop in real life. This not only creates perfect upselling opportunities, but also builds a relationship! But how does that work?


Handle shipping from the storees

Someone has bought online from you - perfect! But now your customers want their goods as quickly as possible. And although the item is only a few hundred metres away from the customer in the store, you still have to ship it from the central warehouse. Can't that be done better?
