Off The shelf Solutions
Origin WebRetail is a user-friendly online shopping platform, enabling retailers to increase revenue by selling automotive parts and accessories direct to consumers 24 hours a day. Autopart integration facilitates simple product and image uploading and fast, secure order and payment processing.
Third-party website integration
A range of Autonet tools are available to allow you to employ your own third-party website developers to create websites that integrate with your Autopart system. These include: periodic web import and export routines, real-time seller services and Autocat+ and VRM web feeds. The tools utilise plain CSV or XML data, thereby giving your developers complete flexibility over the appearance and operation of your website.
What is Origin WebRetail?
Origin WebRetail is a B2C e-commerce solution that integrates directly with Autopart to simplify online trading.
WebRetail is a comprehensive web shop that makes it easy to sell your products online to consumers. It includes a built-in Autocat-powered catalogue to simplify the listing of products, while Autopart integration allows you to receive online orders directly into point-of-sale for processing.
WebRetail is available as an off-the-shelf subscription package, which can be customised to suit your needs via a selection of design and feature options. If you require additional functionality or have specific requirements that cannot be fulfilled by our packaged solution, please contact us to discuss a fully bespoke solution.
What does Origin WebRetail offer?
Standard site features
Flexible design options
WebRetail provides a high degree of flexibility that allows the site to be tailored to match your own brand identity. The package offers a selection of different layout templates that can be customised to suit your preferred colour scheme. You can modify the layout further by adding your company logo, including a background image and displaying your own banner adverts.
If you require additional flexibility or a design that cannot be achieved via the templates, please contact us to discuss a fully bespoke solution.
Stock and prices imported from Autopart
This feature ensures that you can sell the same stock online as you do in store – complete with the same prices. This significantly reduces the amount of manual data entry and the updates take place on a regular, periodic basis. The process is automated, and runs daily as part of the Autopart dayend routine. An optional extra is available to facilitate stock and price updates in real-time.
Integrated order placement
This feature allows your customers to make product orders directly through your website. For added simplicity, the order will be received for processing directly within your Autopart business management solution.
Autocat parts catalogue
Integrating the Autocat parts catalogue into your website is the simplest way to trade vehicle specific components online. It allows your customers to search for parts via VRM, or manually by make and model, minimising the chance of ordering errors. Origin WebRetail now supports advanced Autocat v8 data, which offers enhanced part to vehicle matching.
SagePay and/or PayPal integration
Whether buying in-store or online, customers need to know that their payment details are safe. Integration with established and reputable payment processors, SagePay and/or PayPal, will assure your customers that buying from your website is as secure as possible. Please note that you may be required to pay additional SagePay and/or PayPal fees with this feature.
Special promotions and discounts are a great way of enticing sales and generating product interest. Now, you can do this online too by allowing discount codes and promotions on your web-shop. Promotions can be applied to individual products or product categories.
You can advertise your products or offers by adding banner adverts to your website homepage. The module allows you to upload your advert images and define click-through links for each banner. Adverts can be enabled and disabled, and set to display automatically for a set date range.
Getting your products noticed is essential for the success of your business. The best sellers feature promotes your most popular items to your online customers by listing a configurable number of your best selling products on the homepage of your website.
Even though there are countless powerful ways to market and advertise your products, word of mouth remains the most effective. By adding product reviews to your website, you can let your satisfied customers assure potential customers of the quality of your products. Customer reviews are held in the admin area and must be approved by you before they are visible to your website
Full delivery options matrix
As a business that trades online, it’s important for you to be able to deliver your products on a national scale. This function will allow you to add delivery charges for regions of your choice, and these charges can vary depending on the size of the order. This allows you to protect your profit whilst still being able to trade to a national market. This function also supports multiple order types, for example, premium rates for next day delivery.
Click and collect delivery options
Allow your customers to choose to pick up an order from your site rather than delivering it. The feature is customisable to allow your customers to reserve an item with or without prior payment.
User-friendly CMS admin area
WebRetail features a comprehensive admin management dashboard, allowing you to monitor your website’s sales performance, including top sales by user, total sales, and more. The dashboard also allows you to view a list of recent orders, and manage promotions.
Static page editor
With the static page editor, you can upload text and images to create pages on your website. This could be a page to describe a current promotion with a link to the product you wish to promote. Please note that the file manager will be required to facilitate the uploading of images.
Working in conjunction with the static page editor, the file manager option facilitates the uploading of files to your website. These files could be text, images, or promotional banners to feature on your static pages. All the files you upload will be saved onto your server, so they will be readily available should you need to use them again.
Car care and accessory product listing
Increasing the amount of stock you can trade online is an efficient way of generating extra sales. The car care and accessory product listing feature allows you to add your non-vehicle specific stock to your website, which could include tools, garage equipment and car care and accessory products. Please note that web export routines are required for this function.
Real-time prices and stock
Our standard WebRetail package facilitates periodic price and stock updates. However, this feature allows real-time price updates and stock availability. If your customers are able to see that their desired product is in stock and will be delivered promptly, it could be the deciding factor to make them choose you over your competitors.
If you have customer-specific pricing with trade partners, you’ll want them to be able to see their own prices for products on your website. The trade login feature facilitates this by allowing customers to login using their own unique details. Once logged in, they will be able to see their specific pricing as accessed from your Autopart system. The layout and unique design of your web shop will remain the same for these customers - only the pricing models will be affected.
SEO and digital marketing
Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) and digital marketing will help to ensure that your WebRetail site will rank well for relevant search terms on search engines such as Google and Bing. Once potential customers have been attracted to your WebRetail site, copywriting and content marketing services can help to optimise your site to engage and convert them.
