Supermarkets (1960) Ltd, local franchisers for the Marks & Spencer brand, recently celebrated the first year anniversary of its online shopping portal www.winedrop.com, held at M&S Kitchen in Sliema, in collaboration with Shireburn Software.
Utilising Shireburn’s eStore solution, winedrop.com promises an enjoyable online experience. Products can be easily located through different searching functions, the Wine Finder; where one can search for wines based on pre-defined criteria, such as Country of Origin and Wine Type. The direct integration with the company’s central stock system framework also ensures up to date pricing and quantity management. Winedrop.com also features the Refer a Friend Concept where customers are rewarded for referring the website to others.
Winedrop.com today includes an even wider catalogue of Marks & Spencer food and wines. The full Christmas hamper collection is available online. Free delivery across all Malta and Gozo is offered with purchases above €35. A Click & Collect concept is also available for customers who are not available during delivery hours, whereby the order can be placed online and paid for, and then simply collected from one of Winedrop’s shopping destinations at one’s convenience. These include Marks and Spencer outlets in Sliema, Valletta, Bay Street and Tigne, as well as the recently launched pop up stores at The Atrium, Mriehel and Daniels Shopping Complex, Hamrun.
All orders can be paid for by Credit Card or using a Paypal account, ensuring online customer security.
Shireburn eStore, the solution upon which winedrop.com is built, provides Marks & Spencer and other retailers and B2B suppliers with a fully integrated online commerce solution directly linked to their inventory and accounting systems. This greatly reduces administration workload and duplication of data entry, with one streamlined backend solution for both the physical shops as well as online portals.
