What do GPeC E-Commerce Proficiency program participants say

caret-down caret-up caret-left caret-right
Ciprian Stancu Founder

Our participation in GPeC program has greatly contributed to improving the services and experience provided to clients by implementing the recommendations of the experts.

Also, the reputation and credibility gained within the Romanian E-Commerce community brought us new business partners, new interesting and innovative projects.

In short, GPeC is a valuable source of know-how for any online shop, but also an important networking platform.

Cătălin Florea CEO

We have been participating in the GPeC program for 9 years and this comes from our desire to continuously innovate both the community experience and the services we offer.

During the two GPeC audit sessions, we received recommendations from a considerable number of well-known specialists.

Thus, we managed to have a different perspective on our online shop, to optimize different sections and processes, to increase the conversion rate and to improve the user experience within our online shop.

Bogdana Poenaru E-Commerce Manager

We needed a tool to guide us in the good practices of online commerce and to help us increase the quality of services provided to our customers.

We participated for two years in a row and all this time we made significant improvements to our online shop. We have been able to better understand what our customers want, we have developed new relationships and collaborations that have helped us add new services and increase our sales.

Loredana Grigoraș E-commerce & Marketing Manager

Through complex auditing, you have directed us to invest in digital development in close alignment with customer needs, which has led to many benefits.

I received for the second time the recognition from GPeC as the winners of the Beauty & Health category, which also brings joy, awareness and responsibility.

It shows its value as a strong differentiator of business and is also an environment through which our customers choose us with priority.

Ioana Ciumara Founder

Participating in the GPeC program was for us the first step in the direction of entering the e-commerce community in Romania. Couriers, marketplaces, service agents, and solution providers are becoming interested in collaborations, sometimes better than standard ones.

Diana Dimitriu Manager

Zodiacool recorded a spectacular increase of approx. 5 times the turnover and 50% of the traffic on the site compared to 2020, as a result of the joint efforts made in 2021.

Participating in the GPeC program was a valuable experience, an evolution through an elaborate and efficient learning process. Our team has entered this process in order to learn as much as possible from the best specialists in E-Commerce and Digital Marketing.

We recommend GPeC to all online shops that want to evolve in a continuous learning process and in a transparent competition.

Andrei Podoleanu Marketing Specialist

From the first participation in the GPeC program in 2021, we followed a well-defined journey through the evaluation criteria, during which we also encountered obstacles, but which we managed to overcome.

The fact that we have won the "Supermarket, Mall, Marketplace" category has driven us to become more and more efficient day by day, has brought us a better visibility in the market, has increased our sales volume and also helped expand the portfolio of partner traders much faster.

GPeC is a reliable partner and a "trainer" that helps you have a high-performing website in the top 10!

Marian Chetrone Marketer

Participating in the GPeC program was a very interesting experience which helped us identify the weaknesses of the online part of our business and to make improvements, especially from a technical point of view.

Thanks to GPeC, we have improved the user experience within our website and our presence in Social Media and, at the same time, we have been up to date with the trends in the field. Thanks for everything and we look forward to this year's edition.

Alexandru Novac Ecommerce Director

The GPeC community is a permanent and extremely valuable resource of news, know-how, good practices in eCommerce and industry-specific services, all indispensable for a successful eCommerce business.

For us in particular, it would have been much more difficult for us to develop in a different way, or in other words we would have achieved the same results in a much longer time. All the shops are developing; what matters is which of them develops faster and here the GPeC program is an excellent amplifier of development!

Thanks for everything and we look forward to this year's edition.
