New integration enables online stores powered by SAP Commerce Cloud to launch virtual ambassador storefronts that increase sales and optimize the path to purchase
September 15, 2020 -- San Diego, CA - TVPage, the company that powers virtual brand ambassador storefronts for e-commerce, today announces that its Ambassador Storefronts application is now available for purchase on SAP App Center, the digital marketplace for SAP partner offerings.
TVPage’s Ambassador Storefronts integrates with SAP Commerce Cloud to enable online stores powered by SAP technology to launch e-commerce virtual ambassador storefronts. Brands using the new integration can transform sales teams into ambassadors to sell online through personalized virtual storefronts using shoppable video, product collections and live events to drive new revenue, traffic and extended consumer engagement.
The Ambassador Storefronts app empowers subject matter experts, in-store sales associates, influencers, and savvy consumers to promote products to social audiences and sell online. TVPage enables brands to engage with consumers more personally across digital channels with contactless guided shopping.
TVPage recently graduated from the SAP.iO Foundry Tel Aviv program for early-stage companies. TVPage’s participation in the program resulted in TVPage’s integration with SAP technology, addressing the growing need for stronger digital channels in a post-COVID-19 e-commerce world. Brands in North America and Europe across beauty, lifestyle, food and beverage, electronics, sports, and more turn to TVPage’s Ambassador Storefronts app to increase revenue and optimize the consumer path to purchase online.
