Cymax launches Constant Retail
January 22, 2016,
VANCOUVER, British Columbia – Cymax, one of North America’s fastest growing furniture e-tailers, has launched Constant Retail, an end-to-end e-commerce platform that solves problems furniture retailers and manufacturers face in adapting and scaling their business.
“Brick and mortar furniture retailers want to keep up with consumer purchasing habits, which are moving online, but are faced with major hurdles in inventory management, shipping and logistics, and steep marketing investments,” said Arash Fasihi, CEO, Cymax Stores.
Cymax plans to evolve from an online marketplace to a leader in e-commerce technology. Constant Retail offers traditional furniture retailers and vendors an easy way to explore omni-channels, reaching broader audiences and offering new sources of consumer sales. Designed with proprietary technology, the platform integrates merchandising, SKU uploading and updating, advertising and marketing, heavily discounted shipping carriers and order management capabilities. “At present, only 4% of sales in the $100 billion-plus furniture market happen online, yet nine out of 10 customers are researching online prior to purchasing,” said Chris Carroll, VP of sales, Constant Retail. “Some of the biggest barriers for retailers making the jump to e-commerce revolve around advertising and shipping logistics. Constant Retail gives retailers the ability to comprehensively manage both, providing an affordable online go-to-market strategy in minutes, not months.”
Cymax is set to unveil Constant Retail at the Las Vegas Market, Jan. 24-28.
