ACHICA selects GSI Commerce

GSI Commerce Inc., a leading provider of ecommerce and multichannel solutions, has announced a new partnership with ACHICA, the newly launched UK online private members store that offers luxury lifestyle brands at exclusive prices.

GSI has been commissioned to manage and operate ACHICA’s storage, packaging and shipment operations. Under the agreement, GSI is providing a pick, pack and ship solution to ACHICA for its UK and European customers, integrating its systems with ACHICA's design and hosting agency.

As soon as an ACHICA promotion is concluded, orders are confirmed to suppliers and products are shipped directly to GSI Commerce’s UK warehouse in Manchester. Once the items are received and confirmed on GSI’s systems, customer orders are released and items are packed and shipped. Due to the fragile nature of some of the products, such as glasses or mirrors, GSI Commerce also repackages items to ensure that they are fit for shipping.

Will Cooper, co-founder of ACHICA commented: “GSI clearly demonstrated their expertise in the fulfilment ... management area as well as their technology experience of system set-up and file integration. As a new company – one that was looking to work to a tight launch date, right after the peak season – we were and continue to be very impressed by GSI’s enthusiasm to make our business a success. We are excited at the prospect of a successful on-going partnership.”
