ATG's Suite allows Chico's to do more specialized merchandising

ATG (Art Technology Group Inc), the premier provider of e-commerce software and platform neutral optimization services, announced that Chico's FAS, Inc. has successfully re-launched the Web storefronts for each of its retail brands as part of an aggressive multi-channel strategy powered by the full ATG Commerce Suite.

Boasting a streamlined shopping experience with easy navigation through each brand's extensive catalog of apparel and accessories, all three Chico's Web sites make use of industry leading functionality allowing the merchandising team to deliver targeted promotions and recommendations to consumers.

After recognizing a need to re-platform its existing sites in 2007, Chico's selected ATG Commerce to further accelerate the company's online business channel by enabling sophisticated merchandising campaigns. Chico's is a specialty retailer of private branded, sophisticated, casual-to-dressy clothing, intimates, complementary accessories, and other non-clothing gift items.

The Company operates 1,063 women's specialty stores operating under the Chico's, White House | Black Market and Soma Intimates names. By moving each of its online stores to a common e-commerce platform, Chico's has already begun strengthening its relationship with customers by leveraging ATG's extensive capabilities, recognized by analysts as the most powerful in the industry.

“The success of our private label business has set the stage for substantial future growth of both established and new Chico's brands,” said Stephen Carvelli, director of e-commerce, Chico's FAS, Inc. “For us to continue providing the best online experience for our customers, we know it is important to deliver a consistently rich online experience across all three of our brands.

Our own research – supported by retail client testimonials – clearly identified ATG's Commerce Suite as the offering capable of providing the functionality, reliability and especially the scaleability to meet our needs. We're pleased to see our new sites live. Over the coming months, we will continue the release of ATG driven features and functions that our customers will value.”

“Chico's is committed to maintaining and enhancing the online shopping experience its customers have come to expect, even as it has expanded the number of Web storefronts it supports,” said Cliff Conneighton, ATG senior vice president of marketing. “Winning shoppers' attention and loyalty continues to be challenging in today's economic climate, but Chico's has taken exactly the right steps to make it much easier.”
