BLOOMFIELD HILLS–Certco Inc., a retail co-op serving more than 200 stores in Wisconsin, Illinois, Minnesota and Iowa, is offering its members and other retail customers an enhanced digital engagement platform from eGrowcery, developer of the leading retail food industry white-label eCommerce platform for grocers.
Certco will resell eGrowcery technology and the two companies will partner for digital advertising opportunities.
“By adding eGrowcery to our preferred list of technology vendors, we are helping our retail partners better service their customers across all buying channels. The eGrowcery platform drives shopper loyalty and supports shopper development activities by providing the customer-centric features and fulfillment options preferred at each retailer,” said Emily Mallahan, vice president of digital marketing and retail technology at Certco.
eGrowcery, which operates in the United States and abroad, is already supporting Certco member stores in Wisconsin, including Jenifer Street Market in Madison and Monterrey Markets in Milwaukee. Both retailers are seeing increased revenues and shopper engagement from the eCommerce platform.
“The eGrowcery platform gives us the flexibility we need to make online shopping at Jenifer Street Market exactly what our customers expect. Combined with our great customer service and high-quality products, they provide a solution that helps us compete effectively with much larger chains,” said David McKenzie, owner of Jenifer Street Market.
“This new Certco-eGrowcery partnership will rapidly expand the array of eCommerce features and benefits we will be able to provide these retailers. We are structuring this in a way to add greater efficiency for the retailers, while improving the ways shoppers can purchase and receive their orders,” said Patrick Hughes, CEO of eGrowcery.
