3dcart

3dcart is well suited to getting a site up and running quickly with shopping cart capabilities. The merchant account set up was easy and there are inventory and shipping capabilities, as well. It is a very powerful tool for a small business without full time IT support on staff. While I did not have many products, it seemed like a merchant with a large inventory would have to spend a great deal of time on setting up the store

JDA Commerce Suite

For small to medium retailers, JDA commerce suite is more appropriate.

Pros

  • Strong shopping cart capabilities, with all types of promotions and discounting capabilities. Easy to set up the promotion and implement the campaign.
  • Integration with our email provider to be able to segment buyers based on timing of purchase.
  • Easy to use blog, was able to set up each post simply and create SEO/Meta tags associated with each post.
  • Products set up was easy and there are options for categories and classes to make setting up the store easy.
  • Easy to use for someone with no programming skills.
  • Efficient order fulfillment that is based on demand and labor availability.
  • Single view of inventory and order information.
  • Ease of use.

Cons

  • Using images on the site and in the blog was a cumbersome process. The upload was easy enough, but finding and using the image after upload was terrible. The navigation of the images was difficult and there were no sort functions.
  • For a simple site without the need for a log in admin or shipping, these functions and capabilities were not easily hidden or removed. You needed to have a programmer go into the code to remove them. For a tool like 3dcart, it seemed to be something they could have taken care of with check boxes in the settings.
  • While expected, the templates available were very basic and simple. To enhance the look of your site, you will need a programmer or pay for the premium templates.
  • Earlier JDA versions did not supporting all the protocols for integration for example, sonic MQ. We had to spend lot of time writing adapters for that.

Likelihood to Renew

Not applicable - as a franchisee, the franchiser took over the web site and shopping cart capabilities, so I no longer need the tool. But I would recommend it.

Alternatives Considered

Selected 3DCart based on price point and ease of getting started. Gave a two week free trial to make sure I could get it set up. Seemed easier than other options and had room to grow if I need more capabilities. It also integrated with QuckBooks, FaceBook and Auth.net which were all part of the package right from the start.
The decision was already made by the architects and by the time I joined [the company]. The JDA implementation was already in place. However, the cost of the product and the targeted retailers would have made a lot of sense when choosing JDA Commerce Suite.

Return on Investment

  • Enhanced customer service with ticket system.
  • Was able to quickly set up shop and get started on the web.
  • Reduction in slow-moving inventory and out of stock messages which in turn helped clients to get more ROI.
  • Efficient inventory management across all DCs and stores increased the accuracy of promising of inventory and forecasts.
