Staples Canada, The Working and Learning Company, has launched a new digital platform built on Shopify Plus.
The web experience will have the ability to adapt quicker and continuously improve to keep up with trends and the changing online marketplace, says Staples. With Shopify Plus, staples.ca will have more flexibility and control, delivering a customized storefront.
"We are excited to be working with Shopify Plus because the team shares our values of helping drive forward entrepreneurship and innovation," says Simon Rodrigue, Chief Digital Officer, Staples Canada.
The new staples.ca is a fully-responsive web and mobile experience. It has a refreshed, modern look that aligns with The Working and Learning Company, is easy to use, and offers a streamlined shopping and check out process.
"Some of the largest brands in the world, like Staples Canada, are selecting Shopify Plus to power innovative commerce experiences that deliver everything today's shoppers need," says Loren Padelford, General Manager of Shopify Plus. "We're helping our customers reinvent commerce both online and off by putting the buyer experience, brand, speed, agility and innovation ahead of everything."
Staples Canada's new eCommerce experience includes integrated big data to drive a dynamic customer experience, syndicated customer reviews, informative content and buying guides, enhanced mobile experience, and access to live customer service agents to help support buying decisions.
"Our new eCommerce experience builds on our industry-leading omni-channel experience," adds David Boone, CEO, Staples Canada. "Staples.ca delivers to 85 per cent of Canadians next-day and offers the convenience of buy online and pick up in-store within two hours in nearly every community across Canada. That's really powerful for our customers and few eCommerce retailers have the ability to do that."
Staples Canada also worked with other Canadian digital innovators, including Bold Commerce from Winnipeg, Orderbot from Vancouver, Bounteous from Toronto, and Geekspeak from Whitby.
Staples Canada, The Working and Learning Company, has 305 locations across the country.
