“Pleasure to work with”
Overall: In July 2015, we decided that the time was ripe for Seasons to establish an eCommerce site for our growing chain of supermarkets. After much research and inquiry with regards to several providers including comparing products offered as well as service options and capabilities, we chose My Cloud Grocer to build and maintain our site. Although My Cloud Grocer was not the least expensive solution at that time, we have made our decision to partner with them. Our decision was based on the feedback we received from their other clients as well as their team’s ability to demonstrate very strong technical skills and thorough knowledge of the retail grocery industry. We met with store managers that were current customers of My Cloud Grocer and hear many favorable reviews. We have not been disappointed. Their team is a pleasure and easy to work with. They didn’t only build our website to correctly represent our brand and made sure that every item has a good image, My Cloud Grocer photographers visit our stores periodically to photograph every new product. They also provide valuable input on our marketing strategies and send weekly digital circulars on our behalf. We are constantly receiving compliments on the ease of use and the ultra-fast loading speed of our website. The Shop-by-Recipe feature is very popular among our customers. We have a competitor nearby who chose another service provider for their eCommerce. We see ourselves and constantly hear from our customers that we offer a much better online shopping experience than our competitors. It is also worth mentioning that when issues come up, My Cloud Grocer’s team is on top of their game and handles every situation professionally and expeditiously.
