What is your expertise?
EcomStream utilizes best practice whereby we assess the existing client experience on your site, test these against the Google OnPage Optimizaton criteria, the usability reports of the Baymard Institute and the UX/UI researches from NN/G. We then deliver a solid advice for execution. We also don’t hesitate to take the winners in the online client experience of your main competitors into account and consider these for implementation. EcomStream will then execute, implement and test. We take this approach for both new sites as well as for optimization projects. Our optimization service includes check-out and payments optimization through extensive benchmarking of your existing payments solution in order to enhance your checkout experience and gain significant savings to improve your bottom line result.
From where are you conducting the technical development?

How do you guarantee quality?
As a client you will have access to your section on our development servers where you can follow progress of your new site or optimization in real time. We will only put the project live when you have approved and are happy with the result. Only then you will receive an invoice, not anytime sooner.
What is check-out optimization?
The client experience of your online check-out is important. It is often underestimated.
Your client has already made their choice and should be able to check-out quickly and conveniently. Optimizing your check-out starts with a detailed assessment of your check-out process. This could be of utmost value to you and your clients.
Does it make sence to benchmark my payments solution?
You are probably leaving money on the table with your payments solution. The (online) payments market is extremely price competitive.
EcomStream often achieves savings of > 30% after a benchmark project. It is a far from transparent market, but the lower the cost of your payments provider, the higher the return on your conversion. It’s safe to assume that you can realize huge savings with a benchmark performed by a specialist.
Can I outsource my RFP to you?
Yes, EcomStream has extensive knowledge with managing the entire RFP process for you. From assessing the current status, drafting the RFP document, upto renegotiations and onboarding. The service is entirely based on your requirements and company goals. It is always tailor made to your needs.
