Solution Provider Highlights Eight Things Retailers Need To Know in Retail Infographic
NEW YORK, November 5, 2013 – The economy may be recovering slowly, but projections for ecommerce spending are climbing quickly as the holiday season approaches. In fact, studies show that ecommerce spending will total $61.8 billion in November and December 2013, an increase of 15 percent over 2012’s estimated $53.7 billion. Logicalis US, an international IT solutions and managed services provider (http://www.us.logicalis.com/), says now is the time for retailers to make sure their websites and online ordering systems are in top shape for the holidays. To illustrate the significance of having a technology infrastructure ready to meet the demands of the holiday ecommerce workload, Logicalis has created an informative infographic combining statistics from four* unique sources.
“As shoppers turn more and more to the Internet to research purchases and to complete their buying transactions, retailers’ ecommerce sites have grown significantly in importance, making them business-critical systems that these organizations quite literally cannot afford to have down,” says Julie Spiller, Senior Director, Vertical Solutions, Logicalis US. “Most retailers today have set aside resources to upgrade their ecommerce platforms before the shopping season is fully underway. While the shopping season is nearly here, it’s not too late to examine critical changes in ecommerce solutions and services for this year, and it’s the perfect time for some long-range planning to strengthen ecommerce platforms for the years to come.”
