ELVEY SET TO LAUNCH ONLINE ORDERING SYSTEM

29 January 2007

Lifestyle changes and the emergence of new technologies have put tremendous demands on all industries. At least one-tenth of the world’s population shops online while 43% of internet users in South Africa place orders via the internet at least once a month. For many people the combination of convenience, time-saving and order cost saving is always a winner.

Elvey Security Technologies has recently launched ‘eTrade’, a user-friendly online ordering system that gives customers the ability to order through internet on a 24/7 basis.

The ordering system is meant to address the needs of existing Elvey customers. Smart technology incorporated into the eTrade design enables users to customize their online experience to suit their precise business models. Furthermore, customers can browse for up-to-date electronic security products in various categories, search for specific items, load items into a shopping cart and submit an online order request. An added benefit is that the order is ready for collection by the time the customer arrives at the branch – no more waiting while the stock is being fetched in warehouse. There’s so much more to eTrade – and, it’s all FREE!

“E-commerce has become a facet of modern life, with millions of people now shopping frequently through the convenience of their PCs,” says Elvey Financial Director Beverley Scott. “Our vision from the outset has been to build an efficient online ordering system where our customers can locate, choose and order products while enjoying the convenience of their homes or offices”.

“Many prefer online shopping because it is convenient and economical,” says Scott. “This is the intelligent way to order what you need when you need it while receiving value for money and good old fashioned quality service from the company prepared to go that extra mile to please you”

“With eTrade you will have access to up-to-date pricing, sales promotions and sales order reports. Basically, eTrade takes the power of an Elvey sales branch and places it on your computer screen. Provided that you have a PC and internet access, you can be on your way to controlling your ordering process”.

Customer privacy is of utmost importance to Elvey. It is for this reason that we have employed the latest technology including data encryption and other safety measures to ensure secure transmission of data. Now Elvey customers can enjoy the ease and convenience of ordering from their homes / offices while enjoying complete peace of mind from knowing their transactions are private and secure.
