Together, we’re enabling retailers to scale their businesses without any additional fixed costs, capital outlay or labor for order fulfillment. And just as important, the reliability and manageability of the fulfillment process increases significantly.”
Internet retailers processed over $100 Million in orders with Shopify technology, making it one of the most popular e-commerce solutions in the world. Those retailers who integrate their Shopify systems with Webgistix SmartFill can view real-time order status, shipment tracking, and inventory data, from anywhere at any time.
