Boston, MA, September 29, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Upshot Commerce, a provider of on-demand, fully customizable ecommerce software solutions, announced the recent launch of Price Lynx (www.pricelynx.com), an online catalog and e-commerce store specializing in obsolete and surplus electronics.
“Our platform is perfect for a niche business like Price Lynx,” says Milanie Cleere, Chief Marketing Officer of Upshot Commerce. “Price Lynx carries an array of components and parts that can be easily categorized, searched and filtered to the specific needs of each shopper. Can you imagine trying to go to a Brick and Mortar warehouse and sift through 200,000 items for what you need?”
One feature that really sets Price Lynx apart from comparable sites is the ability to allow shoppers to generate quote orders in addition to traditional online purchasing. “Dealing in obsolete electronics can sometimes be like selling antiques,” says Neal Kaiser, founder and CEO of Upshot Commerce. “Our Sales Quote Extension allows Price Lynx to negotiate with customers to determine a fair price for items that are difficult to determine a standard market value. The customer generates the order, our system allows Price Lynx to quote down to the individual product line and lock in the quote for review, approval and purchase.”
“Another feature of note is the integrated sales team management component,” says Derek Stringfellow, Chief Business Development Officer of Upshot Commerce. “Letting your sales force place orders, manage quotes, and easily collaborate with clients in one system really increases productivity and customer satisfaction.”
