Web and Mobile Marketplace App
With the passing of companies like Toys R’ Us, we are reminded that retailers need to start looking outside of traditional business models to find opportunities for top-line growth. One way to do this is to start earning revenue by providing services to your customer segment, but this would require a major investment in staff and is not scalable.
That’s why RAMP marketplace is such an incredible innovation for retailers. We are able to quickly deploy a peer-to-peer services platform to supply in-demand services needed by your target market. What’s great about this model is that you are not actually providing the services! You are simply facilitating transactions between suppliers and consumers of services that are related to your target market.
Just think about it. Are you a makeup retailer? Connect people with make-up artists for their most special events. Hardware retailer? Connect customers with contractors around the world. Or, think Kazzam by Party City.
RAMP Marketplace is loaded with powerful features and functionalities to power your platform. Here’s a few of them:
Billing and Payment Management
When you’re building a marketplace there is one thing that’s certain…. people need to get paid! That’s why within the RAMP framework we have the ability to rapidly deploy payment solutions(Stripe), escrow services (Payoneer), and invoice management(Quickbooks). This gives everyone on your platform a simple and easy money management solution that will make buying products or managing sales a breeze.
Fully Secure and Scalable
RAMP is built on the Heroku platform so your marketplace has the ability to scale at the click of a button as you start to attract more and more users. You can also count on Heroku and Salesforce to ensure your and your users’ data is safe and secure as you begin to grow. Just to be sure, we added another layer of security within RAMP to provide authentification and identity management solutions to your build.
Mission Control in Salesforce
You’re already running your business on the Salesforce platform, so why would you want your web and mobile app to be any different? RAMP is built for Heroku and Salesforce to allow you to have complete control of your digital experience directly from your Salesforce org. Whether that is making edits to copy, swapping out images, or automating push notifications to specific user segments, Salesforce is your primary tool.
We can look at this in another way, which is you being able to use all of the data you’re collecting from your web and mobile marketplace to better sell, service, and market your business using the tools you already know and love.
And Much More…..
The list goes on and on but can start to vary based on your industry and level of scale. If you want to learn more about RAMP just give us a call, and we will be happy to walk you through the framework.
