SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Jan. 08, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — ReadyCloud—maker of a cross-channel Amazon CRM that’s rocket fuel for loyalty and sales—has just released their New Year’s Amazon White Paper, and it’s a doozy. The tell-all report delivers the goods on Amazon’s most dominating year in ecommerce to date.

The ecommerce industry set new all-time records in 2017—and much of the credo goes to the league’s MVP, Amazon, explains the all-new ReadyCloud Amazon White Paper.

“Amazon’s worth (for 2017) peaked at an estimated $405 billion. Meanwhile, leading online retailers—consisting of Best Buy, Target, Costco, CVS and Walmart (combined)—tallied just $411 billion,” the White Paper reads. “America’s top-five brick and mortar retailers combined to eclipse the Amazon behemoth by a fickle $6 billion.”

The report goes on to explain how Amazon dominated the e-tail stratosphere by hauling in 4% of U.S. retail sales and 44% of U.S. ecommerce sales—with Amazon Prime Day posting impressing year-over-year gains of 60%. Tipping the scales, the paper concludes, was the final nail in the coffin: Amazon grew by 50% YOY from 2016 to 2017.

“The ecommerce industry is as competitive as it gets,” explained Michael Lazar, Executive Director of Marketing at ReadyCloud CRM. “We’re always keeping a close eye on what Amazon does—so we can fine-tune our Amazon CRM for our growing userbase. With 2017’s record-bending numbers in mind, the reality is clear-cut: Wise retailers are getting in on Amazon—which boasts a 2 million merchant base—because it’s an obvious, lucrative sales channel that can’t be overlooked.”

ReadyCloud’s Amazon CRM module helps online retailers stay ahead of their competitors. It instantly connects to this burgeoning marketplace and other popular sales channels—like 3dcart, BigCommerce, Magento, PrestaShop, Shopify and others—to create instant and highly detailed customer profiles from ecommerce order activity. The CRM also integrates with popular email marketing services like MailChimp, and order management solutions like OrderMotion, to give retailers an edge in today’s unforgiving e-tail world.

“ReadyCloud gives retailers an advantage that they won’t find anywhere else,” Lazar emphasized. “Using the robust reporting with rich charts, color-coded calendar, email marketing, and custom profile notes, users can get to know customers in new ways. Producing ROI in ecommerce used to be hard. We aim to lighten the load—so ReadyCloud users can supercharge loyalty, retention and sales the smart way.”
