“They took care of everything including getting all my printers set up etc. I think the thing I like the most is that they have enough staff that there is always someone on hand to help with queries. If my printer is jammed and I've got to get orders out I need help now, not help tomorrow! And they've never let me down. I can't believe now that I used to waste so much time messing around with spreadsheets and Royal Mail Click And Drop. I could never go back!”

“[We needed a] complete system for inventory, accounting, and stock control across our eBay, Amazon and webstores. With help / guidance throughout from their project managers and the support staff this was made easier, with specialist individuals for everything. After recently having our eBay account hacked, we found without CCP, we would have been unaware but with CCP their system picked it up for us (even eBay did not know).”

“If you are looking to integrate your selling channels, this is the system for you! We had been looking for a while to streamline our business and to be honest were a bit daunted by the amount of companies out there and work involved but we need not have worried! CC Pro are a great company to work with, the support has been fantastic, from remote help, to our constant queries via telephone they have been so patient. The system has saved our warehouse staff so much time and we are saving money by having correct stock levels at all times. Thoroughly recommend!”

“Since putting Cloud Commerce in we have decided to integrate more and use their system to process our trade orders Our point of contact at the company, Rosie has been fantastic throughout all our dealings and I can’t recommend them enough. In fact since putting Cloud Commerce in we have decided to integrate more and use their system to process our trade orders which we were initially going to keep in Sage. This will again speed up and automate more of our processes.”

“Every process is now quicker and some we no longer have to do. We used to have to keep a spreadsheet for our stock control and if one or two orders were missed would cause issues, not to mention keeping our sales channels up to date. Now we can concentrate on other areas as our stock is automatically kept up to date and the sales channels are updated. We did look at other cheaper systems without dedicated account management support and are so glad we opted for CCP's system. Some other systems work on a ticket basis but our Account Manager, Mark Johnson is just at the end of the phone whenever we have a question. I now value the folks at CCP an integral part of our own team and feel they are really helping us move the business forward. We have no hesitation in recommending Cloud Commerce Pro: the system itself is excellent and has exceeded our expectations.”

“Before signing up to Cloud Commerce Pro, we had several questions regarding the stock control and how it functioned, due to the complexity of the products we sell. They went above and beyond and even invited us down to their offices to discuss the system in greater detail to ensure that it would be a fit for our business. We have a very complex shipping set up, we use 5 different couriers, due to the wide range of product sizes we stock, but with the help of Stuart from the shipping team, the set up was a breeze and the rules worked perfectly.”
