BESPOKE SERVICES FOR YOU
GlanbiaConnect named
website of the year
GlanbiaConnect.com recently claimed the "Website of
the Year 2019" title at the Retail Excellence Awards. The
awards, which are backed by AIB Merchant services, were
held in November and over 500 retailers attended the
event which recognises Irish retailers who are leading the
way in their sectors. GlanbiaConnect.com offers an online
farm store with thousands of products for farm, garden,
pet and equine with delivery all over Ireland. Glanbia
Connect is also an online hub for Glanbia suppliers to
manage all their farm business in one place. Commenting
on the win, Glanbia Marketing Manager for Retail and
Ecommerce James Byrne, said: "We're delighted to bring
home the prize for best website. Our team have dedicated
themselves to creating the best
online customer experience at GlanbiaConnect.com.
This is just the beginning for us and we have lots of new
features on the way. Farming is technologically advanced
and our farmer customers depend on high quality online
services to run their businesses. The majority of our
website traffic now comes from smart phones. Farmers
are busy, and we needed to develop a site that as well as
looking great, delivers the same experience and speed in
the field as it does on a computer.
The new Glanbia Connect website has been well received
by customers, with traffic and sales increasing threefold
year on year." According to James, retail is becoming
increasingly boundary-less and Irish consumers are
spending over 20 million every day online.
