Venda brings Late Night ecommerce vision to life
Venda has been selected by a new London-based retail brand, Late Night Chameleon Cafe to support the launch of its first website. LN-CC, which markets menswear and womenswear - based around a distinctive concept of unisex styling, music and books - chose the Venda ecommerce platform as it offered a unique 60-day delivery programme.
This ensured the website could be developed and launched within just two months, to the exact specifications of LN- CC.
David Hobson, the head of E-commerce for LN-CC and formerly the head of Ecommerce behind the men's fashion retailer Oki Ni, first worked with Venda when Oki Ni rolled out a new website using the Venda platform in 2007.
He said: “As a new brand we want to grow aggressively and fast. Having worked with Venda in the past it was an easy decision to work with them again. I had the confidence that the flexibility of the Venda platform would allow us to scale quickly and easily on a shared infrastructure.
“Venda has developed this unique SaaS solution for the past 10 years. It not only gave us good scalability, but also allowed us to bring together all the components that we needed to create a strong brand and a good, interactive customer experience.”
The website, in functional format, was delivered to LN-CC's Venda certified team on day one of the 60-day delivery programme. The website contained all of the best practice end-to-end functionalities and workflows required for a high-quality customer experience. Venda also provided design and build consultation to the LN-CC team as it customised its offering, and ensured the entire site adhered to the highest security standard - PCI Tier 1 Compliance - recognised by the payment industry.
David added: “We received a fully-functional site on day one from Venda, which gave us the freedom to customise our site to fit our brand identity and the flexibility to tailor it to suit our customers needs.”
Eric Abensur, Group CEO at Venda added: “This is a key milestone in Venda's maturation as a technology provider. We realise the benefits of giving more flexibility, control and independence to certified clients like LN-CC, and other third parties, to design, build, implement and support world-class ecommerce sites without sacrificing quality. We can deliver the 'Venda Showcase' site to potential build partners, which allows them to follow a project timeline that is comfortable for them. This allows Venda to focus on bolstering the features, infrastructure and services that we continually enhance as part of our promise to our clients.
“We are delighted that the LN-CC team was able to launch its multi-lingual, multi-currency proposition on Venda in less than two months using our technology, and we look forward to working with them in the future, in the ecommerce channel as well as in the other channels they plan to launch.”
Venda's highly flexible on-Demand eCommerce platform shatters the economics, risks, and complexity traditionally associated with deploying worldclass eCommerce sites. The model provides tremendous cost savings and efficiencies not possible with traditional “build” or “buy and build” approaches.
