Bridge helps you use technology to reduce employee costs.
How can your store cut its employee costs?
Let's imagine your store pays an employee $10/per hour to add items to your website. Let's imagine this person can add up to 20 items per hour. That's a good pace of about 3 minutes per item. This 3 minutes entails:
The average cost per item on your site is therefore: $.50 per item ($10 hour divided by 20 items).
What if there was a way to get 100X more items than this on to your site--and have product pictures look better and the price be more accurate? The Smart Products service offers this solution. Smart Products cost under $0.005 per item and offer your business up-to-date pictures, prices, and dimensions.
Viewed another way, for each $1 spent on adding items manually a retailer could spend just $0.01 via Bridge and get better results.
In the above cost calculation, we estimate that adding an item manually costs about $.50. Notably, this cost does not include additional employee costs such as:
As such, the cost for an employee to add an item is more than $.50.
