MONTREAL, Sept. 04, 2018 — Salesfloor, an award-winning mobile application designed for store associates, today announces powerful mid-year sales data following the addition of new clients to its roster. Over the last twelve months, retailers using Salesfloor attribute up to 9% of their online revenue to online interactions between customers and associates. Salesfloor’s platform data also points to a $50 increase in hourly sales per store based on year-over-year data.
“By comparing sales tracked by our platform across our clients’ sales data, we are able to see the incremental impact that stores and associates are making on their company’s business.” says Ben Rodier, Chief Client Officer of Salesfloor. “We work closely with each of our clients, so it’s exciting to see how our partnerships are delivering measurable results.”
In the first half of 2018, Salesfloor added new retail partners including buybuy BABY, Relax the Back, Lilly Pulitzer and Johnny Was. Most recently, a US-based specialty women’s apparel retailer selected Salesfloor to provide its solution to its 1,450 store locations. This marks an important milestone for the company, adding to its prestigious list of retailers which includes Saks Fifth Avenue, Stuart Weitzman, Lord & Taylor, Bloomingdales, Neiman Marcus, Harry Rosen, Toys ”R” Us Canada, and Hudson’s Bay, among others.
“We’re proud to welcome our new partners to the Salesfloor platform and look forward to the same strong collaborations that we have built with our existing customers that have helped drive the success of our solution” said Oscar Sachs, CEO of Salesfloor. “Our latest platform data is further validation that with the right tools, associates who take an entrepreneurial approach to their roles have the power to make a meaningful impact in their companies and most importantly, shape the future of retail.”
Earlier this year, the company also released a new version of its platform for independent retailers. With preliminary results having drawn the interest of retailers across industries, retailers within the beauty, sporting goods, jewelry, and luxury apparel categories are coming onboard. Bixler’s, Saint Bernard, BA&SH, and Want Apothecary are some of the latest retailers within those categories to join the platform this summer.
By the end of 2018, Salesfloor anticipates its active user base will have tripled year-over-year.
