Furnishing change.

Wholesaling and distributing furniture products all across Asia, a furniture company realized that the order process created a serious bottleneck for any retailer wishing to make a purchase.

An order would first have to be placed by phone and checked manually to see if the products were in-stock before the order could be fulfilled. The process was costly, time consuming and required considerable investment in human resources to implement.

Services Implemented:

Convurgeny designed and installed a program that allowed inventory to be uploaded to the website so that a buyer could see what was currently available in real time.

Next, a secure retail log-in was built that allowed staff to search and verify inventory levels. An integrated order process was added so requisitions could be conveniently completed on-line.

Measured Results:

With the implementation of the new website with inventory and ordering functions, the company cut administrative costs by 65% and created a near paperless facility.

Keeping Pace.

For businesses that do not have in-house computer and IT support, Pace Technical offers timely, cost effective solutions. The challenge facing the company was that their advertising and marketing efforts where not delivering the expected results.

Online presence was minimal with poor search engine ranking and keyword search phrases proving ineffectual. Additionally, money invested in traditional advertising media: IT publications and B2B magazines, failed to deliver significant returns on their advertising budget.

With intense local and off-shore industry competition offering similar services, Pace needed to expand their on-line visibility on major search engines with non-branded keyword phrases to expand the company's market share.

  • Search Engine Optimization

  • Website Analytics
