)-- OrbitLift, a company responsible for professional eCommerce software development and web design, recently took part in the first major eCommerce event of the year. This annual event is known as The Delivery Conference (TDC) and took place on January 31, 2017, at the Westminster Bridge Hotel in London, UK.
As a global eCommerce service provider that regularly collaborates with other businesses to innovative and expand growth, OrbitLift
promises a brand centered around teamwork. This teamwork helps to encourage a more comfortable experience for consumers – thus achieving a higher level of excellence.
During TDC, more than 1,250 industry professionals came together to discuss post-Christmas trends and possible innovations that could help establish seamless online shopping experiences. These professionals, including representatives from OrbitLift, came from over 20 countries.
OrbitLift offers services such as technology consulting, eCommerce strategy, experience design, conversion optimization, and marketing strategy. The company focuses on fashion, marketplaces, online grocery, automotive, and retail – providing insights about these industries to businesses who need them.
This year, the theme of TDC was “Future Now.” It focused primarily on technological innovations and new expectations for customer experience. These expectations include seamless delivery, cross-border trade, improvements in logistics, strategic advances, and smooth transactions.
During the conference, OrbitLift participated in a variety of highlights. These highlights established important takeaways from TDC.
One takeaway was the importance of the “next day” and “free delivery” industry standards. According to the professionals at TDC, consumers expect nothing less and companies should meet these expectations. Another takeaway was fast and economical shipping through a wide variety of regional warehouses.
Other important moments of TDC included when British retailers drafted an appeal to the European government to increase cross-border online shopping limits from 22 euros to 500 euros. This increase would significantly change the industry in Europe.
Innovative ideas such as combining logistics networks to offer fast delivery were presented. This idea involved using competitors’ networks for parcel distribution – putting competition aside for the greater comfort of the customer. Yet another innovative idea included Flash eCommerce as a leading trend, keeping advertising messages at just a few seconds each.
Those involved in TDC reached the conclusion that 86% of consumers see shipping as an important part of buying goods and materials online. This means delivery is often associated with brand – and is, therefore, a company concern. Representatives decided that alternative delivery methods are essential to keeping customers satisfied.
Future delivery models were discussed at length. Watch the conference video to learn more. You can also read about the specifics of TDC at http://www.thedeliveryconference.com/
