Marathon Consulting Launches New SwimWays e-Commerce Websites for Consumers
Marathon Consulting, LLC announced the launch of two new e-commerce sites for SwimWays Corporation, a leading manufacturer of pool and outdoor recreational products headquartered in Virginia Beach. The initiative represented Swimways' first venture into online retail sales and enabled the company to begin selling their innovative SwimWays and Kelsyus products direct to consumers via the Internet. In less than 11 weeks, Marathon successfully developed and launched 2 e-commerce websites - www.SwimWays.com and www.Kelsyus.com. Both websites were fully integrated into SwimWays' ERP and Order Fulfillment systems, and were constructed using Marathon's search engine optimization (SEO) methodology.
Monica Jones, Director of Marketing at SwimWays, commented on the successful project, saying, "Working with Marathon's team on the launch of our e-commerce sites was a great experience from start to finish. They took the time to understand our business priorities and became a seamless unit with our own internal team. We launched the websites www.swimways.com and www.kelsyus.com in record time and they are already generating significant sales."
