Volo last week congratulated Bamford Trading on becoming the first Volo customer to secure Google Certified Shop status.  The certification will not only increase business by offering Bamford customers greater confidence, but also recognises the strong customer service ethos that has driven Bamford Trading’s success.

Bamford uses the Volo platform to manage its multi channel business and help scale the business.  Volo has helped the hardware and tools specialist grow by 29% year on year and made substantial labour savings equivalent to approximately 33% of the workforce via automation.

“Last month, Bamford Trading became a Google Certified Shop,” explained John Hewitt, CEO, Bamford Trading. “What this means is that when a customer searches for a product on Google, or if they come directly to our site, a Google Certified Shops badge pops up. Not only does this build buyer confidence and trust, it tells them we offer an excellent customer experience.

“It’s very hard to become Google Certified but we were able to do it within the Volo platform quite easily. After just a month of becoming Google Certified, we’ve seen our click-through-rates increase from 4-6%, this has also had a positive impact on our conversion rates too.”

“Bamford Trading is one of our leading success stories,” said Paul Watson, CEO, Volo Commerce.  “It is incredibly encouraging to see how our platform can help continue to drive growth and secure further opportunities.  Helping to achieve the Google Certified Shop status is just another example of how Volo can help push online and multi channel sellers forward.”
