WebLinc Announces Acquisition of Orderbot
Innovative Order Management System Helps WebLinc Clients Master End-to-End Omnichannel Commerce
PHILADELPHIA, Pa., March 10, 2016 – WebLinc, the commerce platform provider for the fastest growing online retailers, announced today that it has completed its acquisition of privately-held Orderbot, a Vancouver-based order management system. The ability to process orders from start to finish expands the core components of the WebLinc Commerce Cloud.
By acquiring Orderbot, WebLinc delivers an advanced omnichannel toolset which enables businesses to oversee warehouse and inventory management in realtime, gain customer insights through an intuitive CRM, create and track purchase orders, all while easily bringing orders in from multiple channels. The handling of order management often leads to headaches due to overly complicated processes and growing customer expectations. Designed to streamline order management processes and increase the productivity of its customers, Orderbot’s comprehensive system is based around the full lifecycle of a customer order. The end-to-end solution efficiently manages order processing, inventory, sales, invoicing, and omnichannel fulfillment needs.
“All of our clients rely on order management systems, and none of them have found a tool they’ve fallen in love with. We wanted to find that kind of operations management system for our clients and integrate it seamlessly with our platform,” said Darren C. Hill, CEO and co-founder of WebLinc. “This is a huge step in our long-term plan to build the most flexible and powerful commerce solution. More than ever, WebLinc is capable of providing all of the technology needs of a rapidly growing retailer. Everyone at WebLinc is excited to welcome Orderbot’s team to ours.”
Orderbot’s user-friendly dashboard brings integrated payment processing, auto-generated invoicing documents, billing capabilities, and more to the WebLinc Commerce Cloud. Retailers’ operations can now be unified and supported through WebLinc’s ecommerce platform and omnichannel order management control.
Marianne Zakhour, Co-founder of Orderbot, said, “This is not only a historic day for Orderbot, but for businesses who have been getting by on home-grown or lesser systems. Until now, they’ve never had access to such a comprehensive ecommerce system in the mid market that covers every step in the order lifecycle.”
“The respect for values and culture between our teams is a perfect match,” said Steve Izen, Co-founder of Orderbot. “We’re thrilled and honored to bring our order management expertise to WebLinc’s current and future clients.”
Orderbot’s solutions will be presented via demos in the WebLinc booth at IRCE 2016. The conference takes place at McCormick Place West in Chicago from June 7-10. Orderbot co-founders, Steve Izen and Marianne Zakhour, and staff will be on hand to interact with and take questions from retailers.
