Webgistix Celebrates a Decade of Innovation in eCommerce Order Fulfillment


Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) June 15, 2011

Webgistix Corp., the global leader in eCommerce order fulfillment, celebrates its tenth year anniversary this month. 2011 marks ten years of quality service, prodigious growth, and unmatched innovation by the company. Founded in Palo Alto, CA in 2001, Webgistix has grown from a small startup company to the premier service provider in global eCommerce order fulfillment.

As one of the first dedicated eCommerce fulfillment providers in the industry, Webgistix has consistently delivered industry firsts in order fulfillment while serving hundreds of mid-sized, fast growing eCommerce retailers around the world in diverse industries such as nutraceuticals, fitness and sports equipment, pet supplies, cosmetics, specialized apparel and more.

In 2002, Webgistix introduced its revolutionary SmartFill order fulfillment technology, the first technology to fully integrate with FedEx, UPS and USPS as well as and shopping cart software, automating much of the traditionally manual fulfillment process. SmartFill provided online retailers who outsourced their order fulfillment to Webgistix with real-time access to their inventory, order information, and fulfillment costs, 24/7, from any internet-enabled device.

Now in its tenth generation of development, SmartFill is cloud-based order fulfillment software integrated with industry leading shopping cart platforms, including eBay, Magento, Shopify, 3DCart, Volusion, and Channel Advisor, to automate order fulfillment from transaction to shipment.

In 2003, the company guaranteed order turnaround by the next business day, ensuring exceptionally quick order fulfillment, and becoming the first company to offer this as a guaranteed cost-effective solution to its customers. Not long after, Webgistix won its first Outstanding Service Award from UPS, the first of many consecutive awards, and was named to the Best Companies list by the International Association of Outsourcing Professionals (IAOP) in 2008.

Over the years, Webgistix has introduced an Automatic Service Guarantee for accuracy and speed, an online support system for quick response, forged partnerships with a diverse collection of eCommerce companies around the world, including eBay China, launched strategic fulfillment locations in the United States and shipped millions of orders. Click here to find out more on how Webgistixs bi-coastal fulfillment solution reduces shipping costs and shortens delivery times, giving online retailers the highest customer rankings for fast shipping.

As I reflect on the last ten years, eCommerce has grown into a formidable industry where the growth of eCommerce retail is significantly outpacing traditional brick and mortal retailers, said Joseph DiSorbo, CEO and Founder of Webgistix. In 2001, Webgistix started with a vision to deliver fast and accurate global eCommerce order fulfillment. Over the past 10 years, by combining ingenuity and persistence, with technology and services we have created a system that consistently delivers fast and accurate order fulfillment. As a result, customers turn to Webgistix as a leading innovator in eCommerce order fulfillment. Over the next ten years, Webgistix will continue to break new ground with eCommerce order fulfillment technology and services that save online retailers time and money while giving them the control and flexibility to grow their businesses.

Webgistix is exhibiting at Booth #1640 and is participating in an IRCE partner promotion at the Magento Booth #1515.

PartyPail Continues Award Winning Ways, Achieves Business Milestone

Enumclaw, WA (PRWEB) October 16, 2012

PartyPail was recognized last week as one of Puget Sound Business Journals 100 Fastest Growing Private Companies for 2012. This is the second year in a row that PartyPail has been recognized for its incredibly rapid growth. The announcement was made at this years annual awards ceremony on October 11th.

We couldnt be more proud to receive this award, said President and Co-Founder Edward Hechter. Having worked in larger public companies for much of my career, taking a company from start-up to our current size has been very, very rewarding the most enjoyable business experience Ive had professionally.

The growth of the business is part of a larger trend within the party supply industry. People planning celebrations are increasingly choosing online retailers rather than brick and mortar stores when they plan their celebrations. Traditional brick and mortar establishments do a great job of meeting local communities needs, but are sometimes unable to carry the breadth and depth of products that amateur party planners are seeking when they want to create a one-of-a-kind event.

As an example, weve visited local specialty party supply stores, and local mass merchandising big box stores, and found they carry only a small fraction of the number of 1st birthday party themes or baby shower gag gifts compared to what we have, said Marketing Director Katie Knight. Our competitive advantage is that we can carry a much greater selection, enabling our clients to achieve their goals of hosting a truly unique event for their guest of honor.

Growth of the business has been driven by a focus on serving the needs of a specific niche, and offering a complete set of party supply offerings including tableware, centerpieces, decorations, stationery, party favors, and gifts. As the business has grown, it has been able to build a team of party planning professionals who are available via telephone to assist clients in planning their events. This has resulted not only in the company achieving sales growth, but also an industry benchmark of customer satisfaction as evidenced by its 5-Star rating at Yahoo! Shopping.

About PartyPail:

PartyPail operates a set of online party supplies stores specializing in baby shower decorations, first birthday supplies, adult birthday party themes, and other family milestone celebrations. The award-winning business was launched in 2007 and has grown to serve over 250,000 customers. Learn more about the company at PartyPail.com.
