ShortPoint is a leader in intranet design software. Since 2015, they have built over 20,000 beautiful and functional intranet sites with more than 50 global partners. This has led to a rapid acceleration in growth for the company which was both exciting and challenging.
The ShortPoint team realized they need to revaluate their ecommerce set up in order to effectively capture more global sales and compete with larger competitors while staying lean as a company.
“For a company of our size with the growth we have today, there’s simply no way we could handle everything FastSpring does for us on our own. When you break down the value of FastSpring in terms of saved time and resources—it just makes sense.”
Global payments became an area of focus for the team. They recognized that they needed the ability to accept global payments in order to capture more international sales where they did not already have a business presence.
The team evaluated point solutions in an effort to build out their own complete ecommerce set up. However, they discovered that managing these many point solutions would actually require more time, effort, and most importantly, money. In an effort to maintain their lean business model, the ShortPoint team then looked into partnering with FastSpring. They saw the difference full-service ecommerce could make for their business in terms of expanded functionality, saved resources, and cost.
“We explored point solutions to save costs, but when we dug deeper and started dissecting the resource allocation that would be required and the limited functionality of those solutions, we realized it would be too complex and there wouldn’t be any actual savings in the end.”
They chose to partner with FastSpring for many reasons including:
- FastSpring’s full-service ecommerce platform that includes features to support global sales like localized checkouts, automatic tax calculations, and regulation compliance.
- FastSpring is more than just another software platform. They are a true partner for ShortPoint and are designed to provide innovative technology and ecommerce expertise to help the business succeed and grow.
- Thanks in part to their partnership with FastSpring, ShortPoint experienced 5000% growth in revenue since 2015.
With FastSpring powering a world-class ecommerce experience, ShortPoint has grown from making a few thousand dollars in revenue per year to millions. The simplicity of the FastSpring platform has allowed the ShortPoint team to get their online store up and running quickly and efficiently so they can focus on building amazing intranet sites for companies around the world.
