Ljubljana, 15 October 2020 – Online sales were identified as an indispensable part of the SIJ Group's business as early as 2018, when SIJ Ravne Systems first offered its products online. During the COVID-19 epidemic, the online store saw its biggest growth, so that is why the company SIJ Elektrode Jesenice – Slovenia's largest and most reputable producer of electrodes, welding wires and other welding materials, with more than 80 years of client trust from across Europe – wants to come closer to its existing clients and actively find new ones. From now on, both individuals and businesses will be able to order their products more quickly and more easily via the SIJ Shop Elektrode online store.
As we in the SIJ Group strive for coherence, taking full advantage of synergies and being cost and time-efficient, our new online store will have the same appearance and basic functionality as the online store of SIJ Ravne Systems. Of course, the online platform will be adapted to the specific needs of the sales programme and the product categories of SIJ Elektrode Jesenice and their clients – both business (B2B) and individual consumers (B2C).
We therefore welcome you to the online store SIJ Shop Elektrode, which is accessible 24/7 anywhere in the world. In it, we offer a wide range of different types of coated electrodes (basic, rutile or for hardfacing), wires for various types of welding (oxyacetylene and shielded inert or reactive gases welding) and welding fluxes for the automated welding of general structural steels.
The online store is integrated with a modern information system, which displays the up-to-date inventory of products and different prices according to the location of the registered user, identifying possible specific terms of sale for a specific registered user, etc. A registered user will be able to choose between multiple payment options – credit card payment, PayPal, deferred payment or bank transfer.
"A big advantage of the SIJ Shop Elektrode online store is that potential buyers can immediately check the details and advantages of specific products, check if their desired item is on stock and send an inquiry for the items which are currently sold out," Branka Ahčin, the head of sales and marketing at SIJ Elektrode Jesenice explains, adding, "the SIJ Shop Elektrode represents important additional leverage for SIJ Elektrode Jesenice in our attempt to attract new clients, which is also an opportunity to increase sales and give the products under our brand more market recognition. We will simultaneously optimise the work of our sales representatives and the entire sales process."
The creative design and functionality of the online store is the result of our commitment to provide a simple and intuitive user experience, which will convince our buyers to use the web platform instead of placing orders via email or telephone.
