October 19, 2016, Bridgeport CT - After using the same ecommerce solution for ten years, The Tasteful Garden, realized it was time to move to an integrated commerce solution that could keep up with their increasing growth. They switched to GoECart, the leading provider of complete unified commerce platform for emerging brands and growth focused merchants.
The Tasteful Garden was looking for a full commerce suite that could integrate back office functionalities with a mobile-friendly ecommerce platform that was fast, easy, and secure for their customers to use. It was also a requirement that the new platform was integrated with all the major shipping carriers and all perishable products like live plants could be dispatched straight away, without doubling or tripling shipping costs.
Their previous platform offered a poor user experience, and lacked many of the modern functionalities they needed to run business efficiently, which made them rely on a number of disparate third-party applications that were not seamlessly integrated and would often collapse or provide inconsistent data.
“After a year of searching for a solution to satisfy our needs including visits with several vendors at the largest industry tradeshow, we thankfully found GoECart. The platform is exactly what we needed to provide our customers a superior user experience and get them the products fast” said Cindy Martin, Co-founder & CEO of The Tasteful Garden. “GoECart’s platform combines an impeccable storefront technology with inventory and order management system, 360 customer visibility, while still being user friendly.”
The Tasteful Garden ultimately chose GoECart because its home and garden industry specific features that truly differentiates it in today’s highly competitive ecommerce market. These unique capabilities will not only power revenue growth and customer retention but also deliver continuous innovation and scalability as the business grows. These features include “Shipping Start and End Dates”, which display on a calendar the available shipping dates for products during Spring and Fall ordering seasons and allows customers to choose the one they prefer; and “Split my Shipment” options for shopping carts that contain items with different shipping dates.
"GoECart is the perfect long-term fit for The Tasteful Garden. It is the most comprehensive solution on the market, while remaining very user-friendly and affordable. It offers all the advanced features and integration flexibility that the company might need in its path to growth. By running the entire business on a single system, the GoECart solution will significantly improve The Tasteful Garden’s operations, and drive both the top and the bottom line growth" said Manish Chowdhary, CEO of GoECart.
