MarkC | November 20, 2013 | Comments

Linnworks on the RoadOctober has been a busy month for us here at Linn Systems. We’ve been out of the office almost as much as we've been in it. We've been meeting our customers, working with various partners and letting everyone see us in the flesh, without our headsets or keyboards in the way.

Our partners at ReplyManager have released some updates for their software that we thought might be of interest to our customers. We recommend ReplyManager to a lot of people, and are hoping to integrate with it early next year, but in the meantime it still remains a very useful solution to help sellers manage their contact with their customers on channels such as eBay and Amazon.

With ReplyManager, you can save time communicating with customers across channels in one place, just as you simplify your order and inventory workflow in Linnworks, and we think that makes them very useful for our subscribers to help maintain their reputation online, and therefore their sales.

Please see the release below, and their full press release at this link
