They have launched multiple new tools and technologies but three of them stood among all – the Shopify Fulfillment Network, Shopify POS and Shopify Plus.
Let’s begin with the Fulfillment Network. This new feature heals the pain points of the merchant and consumers. It solves the logistics problem, delayed deliveries and give good customer experience while it gives a competitive option to consumers to avoid big shipping costs and saves a lot of time in the expected arrival of items as this network provides a smart inventory-allocation technology in predicting the closest fulfillment center and optimal location, thus assures a fast and low-cost delivery on time.
Next is the Shopify POS. This was an update from Shopify where they made the workflow quicker and seamless for developers. Along with the redesigned app are promises of the following : (according to Shopify, from their website)
- Faster checkout, refunds and exchanges, and global search
- Simple redesign for retail staff, large tap areas and smart grids
- Scalable with unlimited products, multiple location search, staff permissions, and quick access to apps
- A unified backoffice to sync customers, inventory, and order across all locations
And lastly is the Shopify Plus where merchants will have the power to process large and complex businesses to manage multiple stores, users, automation and a lot more in just one dashboard. This significantly helps the businesses to organize and track key factors in the development of their respective companies.
