Delegation of 25+ Chinese Postal Officials Travel to GoECart Headquarters in Bridgeport, CT for Presentation and Demo
Bridgeport, CT - January 3, 2011 - GoECart®, the leading provider of on-demand ecommerce solutions that empower retailers to Sell more™ online, is being considered among a handful of ecommerce providers worldwide to power an online retail portal for the China Postal Group (CPG) Corporation. The state-owned China post has 46,000 post office locations throughout the country.
Last week, more than 25 representatives from CPG Corporation Ecommerce Division traveled from China to GoECart's headquarters in Bridgeport, CT. GoECart's CEO Manish Chowdhary demonstrated the benefits of GoECart's software as a service (SaaS) ecommerce solution. Guests and other presenters at the meeting included the mayor of Bridgeport and representatives from the Bridgeport Regional Business Council (BRBC) and the Connecticut Technology Council (CTC).
"In a time when many technology jobs are being outsourced overseas to countries like China, it is a real testament to both CPG's due diligence and GoECart's world class solution that GoECart is a top contender in the selection process. We are proud to have GoECart in Bridgeport and hope they will continue their remarkable wave innovation here for years to come," Bridgeport Mayor Bill Finch said.
"It is encouraging to see that GoECart is able to attract large corporations and global organizations based on the strength of their solution in such a competitive economic climate. This really showcases how internet cloud computing can be a true enabler of a global village for both innovative companies like GoECart and forward-looking organizations such as the CPG," added Jack Antonich from the CTC.
Among the features required by the CPG for its ecommerce site are an online marketplace for stamps, an online post office, and a web-based retail marketplace integrating CPG's parcel delivery network of services. The CPG would like to enable Chinese consumers nationally to buy its products through the internet and over mobile devices as well as through offline catalogs, phone-order, and over the counter.
At the meeting, GoECart presented how its award-winning ecommerce solution provides the perfect solution for CPG, because of its comprehensive built-in feature set, Thriving Partner Ecosystem™ of best-of-breed technology and service partners, integration with social networks like FaceBook®, and unmatched extensibility and flexibility that can be attainted using GoECart's application programming interface (API). In other words, GoECart would provide CPG with an out-of-the-box solution that includes many features they want, and additional features could easily be developed by GoECart's professional services group through custom development-without the limitations imposed by other solutions.
"The fact that such as prestigious global organization such as CPG is seriously considering GoECart speaks volumes how far we've come over the past ten years, and we were proud to host them at our offices last week," Chowdhary said. "We feel that due to our enterprise-class technology, the robust GoECart ecommerce platform, affordable price, our partner network, the strength of our professional services organization, and extensibility through GoECart APIs, GoECart is without question an excellent fit for the CPG. We are confident GoECart will come out on top in CPG's selection process and look forward to continuing the conversation with them in the weeks ahead."
Earlier this year, CPG sent a business delegation to U.S. to explore direct mail industry practices. They visited Direct Marketing Association and Acxiom, and later joined DMA and signed cooperation agreement with Acxiom. During this trip focused on the exploration of ecommerce business development, the group is meeting with National Retail Federation's Digital Division (Shop.Org), attending a full day seminar with U.S. Internet Industry Association, and visiting Amazon.com's headquarters.
