SAN FRANCISCO & SALT LAKE CITY--(BUSINESS WIRE)--GearLaunch, the leading E2E commerce platform, today announced that the company is expanding its US operations beyond San Francisco with the opening of a second sales and development center in Salt Lake City, Utah.
Strategically situated in Utah’s emerging technology hub, GearLaunch’s new office in the historic Clift Building will house a growing team of sales, marketing and technical talent focused on expanding GearLaunch’s national and international e-commerce operations.
“Direct-to-consumer e-commerce remains the best opportunity for independent entrepreneurs to access the exploding online retail market,” said Thatcher Spring, CEO of GearLaunch. “We are committed to realizing our vision of enabling all independent businesses with the best possible tools and resources. Today, GearLaunch powers more than $100 million in annual revenue for our many thousands of merchants. Our new office in Salt Lake City, selected via a rigorous selection process that considered various locations from around the nation, will further extend our global team, and will help us add a range of expertise across multiple disciplines.”
A growing number of internet-centric entrepreneurs and retailers are capitalizing on drop ship and print-on-demand opportunities but have until now struggled with the sector’s limitations. Long ship times, lack of customer support and undifferentiated product offerings inhibit opportunity and leave the merchants vulnerable to competition and poor customer experiences. In response, GearLaunch has developed an array of high-quality, customizable products that ship on-demand from the United States. Most products ship within 48 hours and all are supported by GearLaunch’s in-house customer service – a critical component of customer satisfaction and loyalty.
GearLaunch not only offers the most complete and sophisticated E2E commerce platform to date, but also provides a host of business operations support and logistics services such as production, shipping and personalized customer support for buyers.
“GearLaunch sits at the nexus of technology and entrepreneurialism,” said Cory Rich, GearLaunch’s new Salt Lake City-based Head of Sales. “We are passionate about solving the challenges our merchants face each day. Our fast-paced, start-up culture provides an environment that is both challenging and stimulating as we strive to bring unequaled opportunity to online merchants around the globe.”
