Years of experience
Crystal Direct serves a number of large retailers, and in their commitment to enhancing satisfaction and optimising processes, they sought a solution to streamline communication between themselves and their clients. Integrating with retailers was time-consuming, and had relied on manual processes. To ensure their scalability and bolster customer service, they sought to maximise their existing relationships with retailers through improved efficiencies.
By leveraging the Virtualstock platform, Crystal Direct has streamlined its connectivity with multiple retailers through a one-to-many connection, eliminating the need for numerous client integrations. The near real-time visibility of stock, order, and delivery status between Crystal Direct and its retailers significantly reduces customer service queries. This solution also simplifies the technical onboarding process onto retailers' websites, empowering both Crystal Direct and their retail clients to increase product sales via dropship.
"At Crystal Direct, our mission centres on delivering best-in-class home improvement products to our retail and trade clients while incorporating cutting-edge technologies to achieve service excellence. Partnering with Virtualstock has allowed us to modernise our order processing for retailers and scale our revenue and orders through dropshipping."
