ACHICA selects GSI Commerce as partner for operational fulfilment
GSI Commerce Inc, a provider of ecommerce and multichannel solutions, has announced a new partnership with ACHICA, the newly launched UK online private members store that offers luxury, lifestyle brands at exclusive prices. GSI has been commissioned to manage and operate ACHICA’s storage, packaging and shipment operations.
Under the agreement, GSI is providing a pick, pack and dispatch solution to ACHICA for its UK and European customers, integrating its systems with the company’s design and hosting agency.
As soon as an ACHICA promotion is concluded, orders are confirmed to suppliers and products are shipped directly to GSI Commerce’s UK warehouse in Manchester. Once the items are received and confirmed on GSI’s systems, customer orders are released and items are packed and dispatched. Due to the fragile nature of some of the products, such as glasses or mirrors, GSI Commerce also repackages items to ensure that they are fit for dispatch.
Will Cooper, co-founder of ACHICA commented: “This is a very exciting time for ACHICA and before we launched, we wanted to be sure that our chosen operational partner would be able to match the high quality experience that we give to our customers online within a very tight deadline”.
ACHICA is co-founded by online retail experts Quentin Griffiths, formerley one of the co-founders of ASOS and Will Cooper who was CEO of the internet marketing company TradeDoubler.
