Popular Shopping Site for Unique Imports Now Using Webgistix for Reliable and Cost-Effective Order Fulfillment

LAS VEGAS, NV — February 9, 2009 — Webgistix Corp., the leader in eCommerce order fulfillment, today announced that Compact-Impact, an importer and marketer of innovative and unusual products from Asia, has selected Webgistix to provide eCommerce order fulfillment for the company’s worldwide sales network, including the popular Compact-Impact.com website. “We’re growing rapidly and we need a fulfillment platform that can scale with our business,” said Kiho Shin, founder of Compact-Impact.

“Webgistix has automated the end-to-end fulfillment process, moving orders from online shopping carts to physical delivery trucks, which gives us nearly limitless scalability. In addition, the Webgistix platform’s flexibility and reporting are superior to other platforms we evaluated. We can choose our preferred shipping method and we have visibility into order status, inventory levels and customer data.”

Webgistix’s unique SmartFill™ platform allows eCommerce retailers such as Compact-Impact to gain all the benefits of outsourcing while giving them real-time, web-based visibility into fulfillment operations. This allows retailers to maintain complete control of the fulfillment process. SmartFill™ integrates seamlessly with a retailer’s shopping cart or CRM system as well as to leading shipping companies, such as FedEx (NYSE: FDX) and UPS (NYSE: UPS).

“Our fulfillment platform has been designed from the ground up for eCommerce sites like Compact-Impact.com that handle thousands of orders each month,” said Joseph DiSorbo, President of Webgistix. “We guarantee the accuracy and timeliness of order fulfillment, and we simplify the process, so retailers can focus on marketing and growing their businesses.”

Shin added, “The financial benefits of going with Webgistix are substantial. First, it’s a very economical solution for our business, so we don’t have to pass on high costs to consumers. Second, Websgistix allows us to hold questionable orders until we verify transactions with credit card issuers. That’s important so we can protect ourselves against fraud.” In addition to fulfilling e-commerce orders for Compact-Impact, Webgistix will handle the company’s wholesale order fulfillment. Compact-Impact’s wholesale business is responsible for approximately half of the company’s overall sales.
