Multi-award winning Hall-Fast has been crowned the East
Midlands Online Business of the Year by the British Chamber of
Commerce and will now go forward to the National finals to
represent the East Midlands.
This latest accolade, the companies nineteenth, in recent years,
will be collected at the Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire Chambers
Annual AGM which is taking place on Thursday 31st
October at Southwell Racecourse.
Hall-Fast operates a collection of e-commerce websites, of more
than 100,000+ products that trade across numerous continents. All
of these websites are controlled by a single integrated
administration interface that provides online catalogue management
and order processing.
Commenting on this latest accolade, Malcolm Hall Hall-Fast MD
said, ''we are delighted to have won another major award! Our
current projections for 2013 will see on-line sales growth of 623%
this year, and the rapid addition of products to the online
catalogue in the first six months of 2013 has almost doubled the
stock items available for sale online, this level of growth means
that online activity will contribute significantly to total
turnover in the medium term and offers very good potential for our
future growth prospects. We expect our direct online sales to be
circa 25% of our sales next year''
The company has retained the services of the South Normanton
based web provider Purpose Media to ensure that their expertise can
be leveraged to deliver the best online performance. Regular
monthly marketing and technical meetings enable Hall-Fast to
control their websites to increase online sales.
