Shopatron Grows in Natural Products Industry with RidgeCrest Herbals
SAN LUIS OBISPO, CA, April 9, 2013 – Shopatron, a leading provider of cloud-based, eCommerce order management solutions, today announced the launch of its newest client in the natural products industry: RidgeCrest Herbals. The Utah-based company, which makes natural remedies for individual health needs such as ClearLungs and Hair ReVive, is now using Shopatron’s unique ecommerce model to drive online sales.
According to RidgeCrest President Matt Warnock, Ridgecrest chose Shopatron because it is the only platform that enables the company to pass online orders to its retail channel for ship-from-store fulfillment. More than 1,000 brands have built their eCommerce initiatives with Shopatron to strengthen relationships with local brick-and-mortar retailers.
“Shopatron is a whole new way to support and grow our network of knowledgeable local retailers,” Warnock said. “For years, we have been concerned that Internet sales were undermining local retailers, who often help customers discover natural products that meet their specific needs. Shopatron connects Internet shoppers with knowledgeable local retailers. This is a win for both retailers and consumers, and we are happy to be among the leaders in our industry supporting retailers in this new and important way.”
The cloud-based Shopatron Order Exchange enables faster shipping to consumers, and introduces retailers to new customers in their region.
“More importantly, after launching Shopatron and implementing our [ecommerce] model, more than 67 percent of our clients’ retailers increase stocking of the client brands,” noted Mark Grondin, Shopatron Senior Vice President of Marketing. “For a brand like RidgeCrest Herbals, working closely with local retailers is the key to their long-term success, and [our unique ecommerce model] can fundamentally improve that collaboration.”
