Retailer Staples Canada has launched a new digital platform on Shopify Plus as the company continues its transformation to “The Working and Learning Company.”
Shopify Plus will host the retailer’s core e-commerce platform at staples.ca.
“We are excited to be working with Shopify Plus because the team shares our values of helping drive forward entrepreneurship and innovation,” said Simon Rodrigue, chief digital officer at Staples Canada, in a news release.
“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,” said Loren Padelford, GM of Shopify Plus. “We’re helping our customers re-invent commerce both online and off by putting the buyer experience, brand, speed, agility and innovation ahead of everything.”
Staples said the new e-commerce 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 e-commerce experience builds on our industry-leading omni-channel experience,” said David Boone, chief executive officer of 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 has 305 locations across the country.
