Build Your Ecommerce Strategy With Rackspace At IRCE 2013

Filed in Partner & Customer Updates by RJ Rowntree | May 30, 2013 12:00 pm

Next week, Rackspace will head to Chicago to attend one of the largest retail conferences of the year. With over 9,500 retail executives from all over the world, the Internet Retailer Conference & Exhibition[1] (IRCE) will feature exhibitors, speakers and workshops highlighting the latest innovative retail technology. Rackspace will demonstrate how we work with all types of retailers on all sorts of platforms. Creating an enjoyable customer experience is our goal for our customers and your customers.

You can find Rackspace at Booth #1573 throughout the event (June 4 through June 7), so come check out how our customer, LoveSac, utilized the Rackspace Cloud[2] to ensure a seamless customer experience while disrupting the norm of furniture buying.

LoveSac[3] started the modern day beanbag chair revolution. And as its sales grew, it needed an ecommerce platform that would help it scale to help it reach new heights.

As LoveSac’s business has grown and its alternative furniture styles have extended beyond its original beanbag-style sacs, the company trusts Rackspace and Magento to help scale its ecommerce platform. Its combination of Dedicated Servers[4] and Cloud Files[5] has helped LoveSac grow its ecommerce and retail sales by 40 percent and has made its website much faster.

When you make money online, nothing is more important than the customer experience. This means page load times need to be swift; the checkout process must be easy; and the product descriptions must be detailed.

Check out LoveSac’s full story[6] here and be sure to watch the video!

And we’ll see you at IRCE 2013!
