Although it’s how some of the most successful ecommerce companies in the world have gotten their starts, packing boxes out of a residential garage wasn’t in PetBox’s long-term strategy. In a market where outsourced operations are the norm, founders Will Ford and Sean Conlon weren’t concerned about making the decision to outsource; however, they knew that choosing a partner who would grow with them, enhance their customers’ experience, and create new opportunities for their brand makes all the difference in their start-up’s success. That means finding someone with an expandable footprint, a flexible approach to operations (no ‘cookie cutter’ plans!), and a deep network of ecommerce connections that can help with marketing, merchandising, site design, and more.
PetBox’s approach, from CEO Sean Conlon: “Online, you don’t have the same luxury of touching your customers as brick-and-mortar retailers do, so your customer’s experience should be a good balance of clear communication and prompt delivery. I am a firm believer in the “bootstrapping” methodology and using as few resources to get you as far as possible in each horizon plan.” That’s where Speed Commerce came in!
