Vancouver, BC – Venzee Technologies Inc. (TSX-V: VENZ) (the “Corporation” or “Venzee”) is pleased to announce that the award-winning interior design firm and nationwide home decor e-retailer, Venue, has selected Venzee to automate the process of adding and updating products sold on venueathome.com.
The Venue store is powered by Shopify, a product that is supported with the use of Autopilot, Venzee’s artificial intelligence software. Venzee transforms product information from suppliers and manufacturers into the requirements of retailers, a labor intensive and costly process that the retail industry still performs using spreadsheets.
Jackie Lopey, CEO of Venue commented, “Venzee has allowed us to leverage our vendor relationships and sell to a nationwide audience with almost 50,000 products online. Plus, we’ve streamlined our back-office operations. Venzee is the missing link between messy vendor data and a professional, organized online catalog. We tried other software, but they didn’t have the power or flexibility that Venzee offers.”
Kate Hiscox, Founder and President of Venzee, added, “We are delighted to be working with an award winning interior design firm. Venue is in the process of adopting the Autopilot feature of our platform to increase their return on investment, and obtain a higher efficiency in their business using our software. This continues to demonstrate Venzee is relevant to all industries across the world that want to deliver error free product information to their distribution channels.”
Venzee provides high value customized SaaS (software-as-a-service) solutions to mid-market and tier-1 enterprise clients around the world. Additionally, it accommodates the budgets of up and coming retailers hosted on platforms like Shopify, with pricing starting from US$49 per month.
According to Statista, in 2016, the global e-commerce industry achieved estimated US$1.8 trillion dollars in sales, and is expected to grow to US$4.5 trillion by 2021. As e-commerce sales continue to grow at staggering rates, the need for better delivery of product information for businesses is now solved with the Venzee software solution.
Winner of the Houzz Best of 2017 & 2018 Award for Customer Service, Venue specializes in home remodels and top-to-bottom makeovers. Situated in California, Venue aims to bring the dream home to the customer, without the hassles and headache that usually go along with remodeling.
