New platform for video ‘etailing’ plugs into existing ecommerce sales channels

With eCommerce demands changing with little or no notice, platform flexibility is more important than ever. To address that need, Astound Commerce has launched its Vtail platform for video retail content, or ‘etailing.’

Vtail allows for a shortened process for video retail integration into existing eCommerce sales channels via websites and apps. 

The Vtail platform includes:

• Group text chat;
• Live-voice integration;
• Customer invitation option;
• Simplified scrolling to order button; and
• Scheduled and private tours. 

With a client roster that features Calvin Klein, Under Armour and Louis Vuitton, the technology could be in use in time for the 2020 holiday season. 

Why we care. The 2020 holiday season is almost upon us, and how many consumers will be making visits to brick and mortar stores or showrooms a priority? Video can fill an important gap.
