“Consumers today expect a certain level of convenience when they shop. Our goal with HLC Fulfillment is to equip retailers with an easy-to-use tool that enables them to better serve and engage with those consumers,” said Derrick Boatwright, HLC’s director of e-commerce and digital strategy.
“It’s the perfect way to provide a great customer experience while simultaneously reducing your effort and cost. Our retailers are the experts on selling to the consumer — let HLC be the experts on the logistics of getting it in their hands quickly.”
Retailers can make the orders via hlc.bike, FTP, file upload, or an automated API.
