Two thirds of consumers use mobile emails to redeem offers, but three-quarters delete them before viewing the deals. Is it a control thing?
Security, storage and systems management services provider Symantec is rolling out its own internally developed e-commerce solution. It will not extend its contract with e-commerce solutions provider Digital River beyond its June 30, 2010 expiration.
E-commerce service provider Digital River is eliminating 120 positions globally as part of a realignment that will see the outsourcing of its customer service operations and growth in its product development and sales areas. "This is not a downsizing," said Ed Merritt, VP, investor relations at Digital River. By contracting with outsourcing provider Sitel to manage its customer e-mail and phone inquiries beginning September, "the level of service provided to customers will be better than we can provide," said Merritt.
Digital River Inc. has introduced a new e-commerce platform designed to optimize the online sales of limited-edition and clearance merchandise for manufacturers. "Companies are looking for additional sources of revenue," said Matt Voda, group VP and product manager at Digital River. As a result, the traditional scenario that saw manufacturers liquidating left over inventory through a third-party isn't as appealing as it once was.
