Make the Most of Your Government Contracts with Logicblock Optimization

A good ecommerce site like yours is always looking for ways to cut costs and streamline processes, without sacrificing quality or accuracy. After all, the easier it is to make a sale, the more sales you can make in a day. General Services Administration (GSA) contracts are an invaluable resource for guaranteed prices, honest contracts, and a reliable sales process.  

Not familiar with the General Services Administration? Well, you’re in the right place. Logicblock makes it easy for businesses like yours to make the most of GSA contracts. We start by making sure our customers and partners are educated, so let’s begin at the beginning. 

What Is the GSA? 

The General Services Administration, or GSA, is an independent agency of the Federal Government charged with managing the policies and procedures of federal agencies and offices. Basically, the GSA makes the rules that manage federal property and government agencies. 

So, What’s A GSA Contract? 

GSA contracts are a means of streamlining the procurement process for government agencies. These contracts are established by the GSA and are intended to provide a centralized marketplace where eligible buyers can purchase goods and services from pre-approved vendors at pre-negotiated prices. 

GSA contracts cover a wide range of goods and services, including everything from office supplies and office furniture to IT equipment and software. In order to be awarded a GSA contract, vendors must go through a rigorous vetting process that includes a review of their financial stability, past performance, and compliance with federal regulations. 

GSA Contract Benefits 

Increased Visibility 

Having a GSA contract heightens your online store’s visibility with government agencies and customers, both of whom have access to the GSA marketplace. Your products will be listed on the GSA website, and you can also apply to be featured in GSA’s Online Catalog, giving you added exposure.  

Improved Credibility 

Having a GSA contract shows potential customers that your business is legitimate and trustworthy. The GSA is a well-known government agency and having a contract with them is seen as an endorsement of your store’s quality and reputation. Even non-government organizations will recognize your GSA contract

Prices Set in Stone  

With the set prices that GSA contracts require, big box stores can’t underbid the little guy, and the customer always gets the best price. This is perhaps the greatest equalizer in the GSA’s toolbox, making it possible for businesses of any size to compete in the marketplace. 

Common Challenges 

As beneficial as GSA contracts can be, they come with their own set of challenges, particularly for newcomers. At Logicblock we are ready, willing, and eager to apply our extensive industry knowledge to work, supporting you as you pursue, secure, and fulfill your GSA contracts. 

How We Help  

Logicblock has developed a comprehensive suite of tools and services designed to help businesses navigate the GSA contracting process and make purchasing easier for government agencies and other eligible buyers. Some of the key features of Logicblock’s GSA solution include:   

Compliance and Contract Management 

Comprehensive compliance and contract management tools that help businesses ensure that their orders are in compliance with the terms of the contract. These tools can help businesses stay on top of requirements for things like delivery times, packaging, and labeling, reducing the risk of penalties or contract cancellation.  

Streamlined Ordering 

GSA contracts, when correctly applied, will streamline the ordering process, making it faster and easier for customers to place orders. By reducing the time and resources required to process orders, Logicblock makes it easier for your business to compete with larger vendors.   

Marketing and Sales Support 

Our top-of-the-line marketing and sales support tools help any business thrive in a competitive marketplace. With Logicblock you will: 

Reporting and Analytics

Logicblock’s robust reporting and analytics tools help businesses track their performance and identify areas for improvement, helping to optimize operations and improve productivity and competitiveness over time.

Logicblock Makes Moving Day Easy with Data Migration Services 

There’s nothing more stressful than a big move. You spend days, weeks, and months planning for the transition, packing boxes, checking lists, switching utilities accounts from one address to another. What makes it most stressful is knowing that no matter how hard you try, something may get broken, left behind, misplaced, or forgotten entirely. 

Changing ecommerce platforms is just as scary. You can’t run the risk of losing your data or having it corrupted. That’s where Logicblock comes in. Our comprehensive ecommerce platform offers a range of services to help online store owners to manage and grow their businesses. By offering migration services that are second to none we make an ordinarily complex and time-consuming process as smooth and efficient as possible.  

Automation Saves Time & Stress 

One of the standout features of Logicblock’s data integration services is the automated migration process. Automation is the secret weapon that prevents errors that compound into lost productivity. Whether its product catalogs, customer data, or order history, data migration from your old platform to Logicblock is easier than ever. The automated process helps to ensure that the migration is fast and accurate, reducing the risk of data loss or corruption. 

Designed to be simple and straightforward, the automated migration process puts you in complete control of your data. Users can specify which data they want to migrate, and the system will automatically transfer the data to the appropriate fields in Logicblock’s platform. 

Need Help? Trust the Experts 

While the automated migration process is designed to be easy to use, there may be situations where users need assistance with the migration process. For example, there may be issues with data formatting or compatibility between the existing platform and Logicblock’s platform. In these cases, we provide expert assistance to help users troubleshoot and resolve any issues that may arise. 

Our support team is made up of eager and seasoned ecommerce professionals who have extensive experience with data migration. They can provide guidance and advice on a range of issues, from configuring settings to transferring data. Users can rely on the support team to provide prompt and effective assistance throughout the migration process. 

Wish Your Data “Safe Travels” 

Data security is a major concern for online store owners, particularly when it comes to sensitive data like customer information and payment details. Logicblock’s data migration services are designed to be secure and reliable, with a focus on protecting user data throughout the migration process. 

At Logicblock we use SSL encryption to ensure that data is transferred securely. This means that data is encrypted during transit, making it difficult for unauthorized parties to intercept or access the data. We take data security seriously and pride ourselves on maintaining a safe system with multiple layers of protection against data breaches and other security threats.  

Detailed Migration Reporting 

Throughout the data migration process, it is important to have visibility into the progress of the migration and to be able to monitor the status of the transferred data. Logicblock provides detailed reporting on the migration process, allowing users to track the progress of their migration and ensure that everything is running smoothly. 

Our reporting provides users with insight into the data that has been transferred, helping them to make informed decisions about their business. You’ll be able to see quickly and easily what data has been transferred successfully, what may need to be manually added, and what data is still waiting to be moved. As always, we strive to put you in total control by offering a level of detail designed to help ensure that the migration is complete and accurate. 

We Love Making Things Easy 

Data migration is just one way Logicblock makes it easier to run your online business. Our responsive sites and SEO are guaranteed to take your store to the next level. 

Out of the Box and Ready for Mobile 

Every ecommerce site powered by Logicblock automatically receives the full responsive site and mobile-ready treatment. Reach your customers wherever they are on whatever device they use with a “streamlined” version of your site. 

Unlock Powerful SEO 

By giving each individual product its own unique page, complete with customizable meta-tags, we skyrocket awareness of your business on Google and other popular search engines.

Social Media Opens Your Store to Everyone 

You’ve built a beautiful ecommerce site ready to deliver high-quality goods and excellent service to…who? You’ve thrown open the doors, but no one is coming through. Where is everybody? 

The fact is, in 2023 you can’t expect customers to just come to your online store. You have to go to them and meet them where they are. And where are they? Two little words with one huge impact: social media.  

Luckily, it’s easier than ever before to build your social media presence, expand your brand awareness, and attract new customers. 

Guide to Picking Your Platform 

Artistic photo showing social media platforms as dice

Social media can be an incredibly powerful tool for online retailers, particularly when it comes to reaching customers on their mobile devices. But it’s important to understand which platform is best for your business. Depending on your industry, you may decide to focus primarily on one platform or invest in multiple profiles.  

By carefully considering which platforms are most likely to reach your target audience, you can make sure that your social media presence is effective. Take some time to research which platforms are best suited for your industry and develop a strategy for how you will use each one to connect with people.  


Facebook is a great choice for any type of business because it has the largest user base of any social media platform, hosting more than 2 billion daily active users as of the end of 2022. Facebook is particularly useful for engaging directly with customers and providing customer service through comments and Facebook Messenger. Facebook also allows you to “boost” posts and turn your content into paid advertisements to reach an even larger audience. 


Instagram has become incredibly popular with businesses interested in targeting a younger demographic than you may find on Facebook. Instagram is great for visual content, making it ideal for showcasing products and engaging with customers through photos and videos. Sharing links on Instagram is a great way to engage and paid advertisements can send users straight to your site without ever leaving the app. 


TikTok is a relatively new platform, but it’s quickly becoming popular among younger audiences. Businesses can use TikTok to create short videos that showcase their brand, products, and services. Content from TikTok often ends up on other social media sites, particularly Instagram, so a well-managed TikTok account can cover several bases. 


Twitter is ideal for providing customer service and getting out the word about promotions and new products quickly. It’s also a great place to join conversations around relevant topics in your industry. Twitter is the number one stop for sharing breaking news about your business. 


LinkedIn is the perfect platform for connecting with other professionals in your field. It’s also an excellent tool for networking and building relationships that can lead to potential business opportunities. A manicured LinkedIn profile lets visitors know you mean business, whether they are hoping to work with you or for you. You may not convert many individual customers here, but LinkedIn connections are just as valuable in the long run.  

Tips for Creating Great Content 

You know your site works great on mobile, thanks to Logicblock’s Responsive Web Design, now it’s time to draw mobile users to your site. It’s not enough to be on social media, you need an active account if you want to attract users, and that means creating content. Scrolling through your favorite social media app can make you feel like your business needs a studio full of creatives to make something worthwhile, but that’s what’s so great about social media! It’s the great equalizer. With just a few tips, you’ll be as likely as the Big Guys to create something special and “go viral.”  

Connect with Your Audience  

This may seem like a No Brainer, but engaging with your customers is the number one rule of social media. Responding to comments, replying to messages, and posting questions to encourage dialogue and meaningful connections are simple and effective ways to reach your audience. That level of person-to-person connection is what makes social media so powerful, and what keeps customers coming back for more!  

Visuals Speak Louder than Words  

People are more likely to engage with visuals than they are with text. Use eye-catching imagery, GIFs, or videos to draw attention to your content and make it more memorable. Dynamic product photos or entertaining videos of the services you provide make great visual content. 

Leverage User-Generated Content 

Encourage customers to share their stories, experiences, and opinions about your brand on social media. User-generated content (UGC) helps to create an emotional connection with your audience, builds trust, and increases engagement. 

Analytics – Social Media’s Hidden Treasure 

You know that knowledge is power, and analytics are a huge tool in acquiring knowledge. Analytics play an important role in helping online retailers understand the success of their social media presence. It’s essential to track the performance of social media campaigns, as well as the engagement of users on each platform. Businesses can then measure the effectiveness of their campaigns and make informed decisions about where to invest their resources. 

Analytics also provide valuable insights into customer behavior by measuring how successful social media strategies are at driving traffic to a website or converting visitors into customers. This allows businesses to optimize their strategies and make sure they’re getting the most out of their efforts.

Does This Sound Familiar? 

Old fax machine

In Ye Olden Times, a buyer would create a purchase order, print it out, and then mail, fax, or carrier pigeon it to their supplier. The supplier would read the PO and carefully re-enter the data into their internal systems and create an invoice. The invoice is printed out, faxed or sent back to the buyer. The buyer then enters the invoice data into their internal system for processing.  

Sound time consuming? You’re right. Repetitive? Right again. Lots of potential for mistakes? Bingo. It doesn’t take a genius to realize this is the wrong way of doing business.  

Luckily, that’s where Logicblock comes in. Our powerful 7cart eCommerce platform is designed to solve problems like this. Logicblock’s integrations allow for Electronic Data Interchange, guaranteed to cut down on repetitive, time-consuming paperwork that creates opportunities for mistakes. With EDI, Logicblock streamlines and automates as many processes as possible, so you have more time to focus on the bigger picture.  

Using EDI means you’ll increase the accuracy and speed of the purchasing process, while lowering transaction costs by 30% or more. In the end, you’ll end up spending less time waiting for payments while you lower the room for error.  

What exactly is EDI? We’re so glad you asked! 

EDI – A Little Name for a Big Deal 

c, or EDI, is an automated system used by businesses to exchange and transfer documents and data electronically. EDI streamlines the process of sending and receiving important documents, such as orders, invoices, payments, and shipment information. It enables businesses to send and receive orders quickly and efficiently, improving their overall operations. 

How Does it Work? 

First companies agree on the standards they will use to ensure their documents are compatible. They then create messages and forms in the standardized format that they both understand. The EDI system then translates these documents into an agreed-upon language so they can be sent over the internet. On the other end, another EDI system translates the message back into the desired format so it can be read. This process can take some time to set up, but once in place, EDI saves time every time.  

For ecommerce businesses like yours, EDI is a must-have tool for success. In the online world, it’s essential to have a reliable way to communicate with both customers and suppliers. EDI enables companies to securely and quickly exchange important data with partners around the globe in real time. 

What’s That Mean for Your Business? 

Simply put, EDI eliminates manual processes, reduces paperwork, and improves accuracy. As a result, businesses save time, money, and resources by automating document processing. EDI also helps businesses stay compliant with industry standards and regulations. By using EDI, businesses can keep up with the demands of today’s rapidly changing digital economy. 

Let’s take a closer look at the benefits of EDI, and how it works for you. 

What Are the Benefits of EDI? 

With Electronic Data Interchange, Logicblock helps to reduce costs, speed up business processes, and improve accuracy by automating data exchange between businesses and eliminating manual entry. Introducing EDI into your online store will quickly reap these benefits. 

Optimize Your Labor 

If you have a small team, every moment counts. Do you want employees focused on paper pushing, or on growing the business? With EDI, transactions can be completed quickly and accurately without manual intervention, allowing companies to process large volumes of orders with less labor and faster turnaround times. This allows a small sales team to satisfy a larger customer base, while maintaining excellent customer service.  

Keep It Safe 

EDI increases security by eliminating the need for repetitive manual data entry. Entering the same data over and over again isn’t just an invitation for errors, it’s unsafe.  

Imagine you’re checking out at the grocery store, and to pay with your card you have to say your credit card number, date of expiration, and 3-digit security code loud enough for the cashier to hear it. The cashier repeats all of your credit card data back to you, while other shoppers and employees are within earshot. You wouldn’t feel safe doing that in person, why do it online?  

With EDI all exchanges are done electronically, providing a secure platform for exchanging confidential information. No more orders getting lost in the mail, or crossing your fingers that a money order doesn’t end up in the wrong hands. 

Don’t Miss a Cent 

To err is human, and errors can add up to real losses. Reducing the risk of human error saves money in the long run.   

The Numbers Don’t Lie 

At Logicblock we love hard data, so let’s take a look at the numbers. Businesses who utilize EDI: 

  • Increase business cycle speeds by 60% 
  • Reduce errors by as much as 40% 
  • Cut operating expenditure by 30% when you replace paper, printing, reproduction, storage, postage, and filing with online ordering 

Here’s a benefit you didn’t expect: by implementing a paperless ordering system you reduce CO2 emissions, taking one large step towards a carbon neutral office.

Unlock the Power of Mobile 

Chances are you’re reading this blog on the single most powerful marketing tool your business has: a smartphone or mobile device. Mobile marketing and ecommerce trends are emerging and growing faster than viral dance videos, with innovation guaranteed to make it easier than ever for you to reach new eyes while retaining loyal customers.  

Let’s take a closer look at 6 of the newest trends in eCommerce and marketing we expect to see in 2023. 

Mobile-First Design 

Mobile devices have become the primary platform for online activity, with over 60% of online searches now coming from mobile devices. As a result, businesses are focusing on developing mobile-friendly web experiences to reach their target audience.  

Mobile-first design is an approach that starts with optimizing the user experience for smaller screen sizes, with the goal of providing a better overall experience regardless of device. This means focusing on creating responsive web designs that optimize your site to any mobile device. 

5G’s Ongoing Impact 

5G Tower

As 5G technology continues to develop and spread, companies can offer better user experiences, faster loading times, and smoother animations for their applications. 5G’s impact on app performance also extends to greater scalability and data processing power, allowing businesses to handle more requests and data-intensive tasks such as real-time analytics.  

With better connection stability and resilience to interference, applications can remain online and available even in areas with poor coverage or during peak usage times. With no more abandoned carts when users lose their Wi-Fi signal, 5G means every experience is a complete experience. 

Pairing Visual Search with Shoppable Feeds 

Instead of having to type out lengthy queries, visual search allows users to simply upload a photo or take a snapshot of something they’re interested in to find related products and services.  

By creating shoppable feeds, apps like Instagram have made it possible for customers to purchase items directly from within the platform without ever having to leave. Brands and retailers are able to share product photos with links back to their site where customers can make the purchase. 

By combining visual search and shoppable feeds, brands and retailers can provide customers with a seamless shopping experience. With a visual search, customers can find items they’re interested in quickly and easily, while the shoppable feeds allow them to make the purchase without having to leave the platform. A new definition of “one stop shopping” for the mobile world.  

Social Network Video 

The use of video on social media platforms such as TikTok, Instagram, and YouTube has exploded. Video content is engaging, entertaining, and more likely to be shared than text-based posts. As a result, businesses are quickly realizing the potential of a video-focused social media presence to attract customers and drive sales.  

TikTok is an ideal platform for ecommerce brands. Of their 1.5 billion users, 60% view content on TikTok every single day. By incorporating video into your social media strategy, you can reach more customers, build relationships with them, and generate more leads and sales. These ads can be customized with different formats and can include a call to action with a direct link to the product page. They’re also a great way to target a specific demographic and create personalized experiences.  

Mobile App Integration 

While every business does still need a website, to really stand out and offer customers a second-to-none experience you need an app. Mobile apps have become an essential part of how businesses reach their customers. Through mobile app integration, merchants can leverage the convenience of mobile to drive sales in their physical stores. By integrating their products and services, merchants can provide customers with an easier and faster way to shop and make payments.  

While your customers enjoy the convenience of your app, you are gathering valuable data about them. After all, the more you know about your customers, the better prepared you can be to serve them. 

Connected TV 

While not considered a mobile service, Connected TV devices like Apple TV, Roku, Amazon Fire Stick, and Smart TVs are achieving a level of customer connectivity and interaction previously unseen in the medium. 

CTV advertising presents a unique opportunity for companies to reach viewers inside their own homes with targeted messages, tailored to their interests, preferences, viewing habits, and other behaviors. By using the information gathered by a device like Roku, marketers can learn what type of content their viewers are interested in, when they are watching it, and how long they are watching it for. This helps brands deliver more relevant and impactful ads, satisfying customer needs while bringing your company even more success.

Product Catalogs – The Key to a Strong Store 

Your eCommerce store is the lifeblood of your business and, in order to remain vital, your store must be flexible to the times. Fortunately for you, it’s never been easier to upload and integrate product catalogs to your online store. Never been easier with Logicblock, that is. 

Product catalogs are essential for ecommerce stores like yours, as they literally stock your shelves and provide customers with detailed product information from prices and images to descriptions and accessories. Product catalogs create an organized and efficient shopping experience for customers and help create a manageable back-end for you.  

Harness the Power of 7cart 

Product catalogs can be difficult to manage and maintain. It takes time, resources, and labor to ensure that all product information is accurate, organized, and timely. If you’re manually updating products one at a time, you are stuck in the past.  

At Logicblock we use our powerful 7cart platform to help manage product catalogs, streamlining the process of uploading and integrating them into your online store. With Logicblock, you can easily manage multiple catalogs, inventory, price changes, and more. 

Catalog Management 

Keeping catalog updates straight can be a full-time job, but our Multi-Vendor Catalog service manages updates automatically, so you never miss a beat. A good vendor is constantly reevaluating their offerings, adding new products and expanding into new product categories. When your vendor updates their information, you’ll be the first to know.  

Inventory & Cost Management 

Global events can cause supply shortages or runs on popular products. Don’t be caught empty handed when customers come looking for the products they need. Logicblock sites automatically sync inventory information, including changes in availability and cost, with distributors. In the unlucky event that your shelves are empty, you can fulfill customer orders directly from your vendors, so customers can always get what they need. This level of automation can also prevent costly errors while increasing processing speed.  

Product Uploads 

It should be clear by now that with Logicblock you are in complete control. Your constantly evolving business can grow and shift in unexpected ways, and to stay on top you must be able to pivot. Our intuitive programming makes it easy and speedy to optimize your store through batch uploading and editing. Adding, deleting, and updating products is simple and fast. This amount of control gives you the ability to organize your site exactly how you want it, presenting the perfect face to your customers while keeping things simple for your employees. 

The Benefits of a Wide Selection 

It’s simple as this: a wide selection of products increases the chances of them finding something they like and are willing to purchase. A wide product catalog also allows customers to better compare different products to find the one that best meets their needs, further increasing the likelihood of them making a purchase.  

With that in mind, more isn’t always better. Yes, a wide inventory can be very advantageous, but flooding your store with random items likely won’t increase sales any more than crossing your fingers. You want to be sure your store is featuring trending products, new additions, and industry standards, all while attempting to maximize ROI. 

Choose a Profitable Industry 

Different products offer different profits. Narrowing your focus to a particular industry can help you more easily discover markets for products with high demand and return. Simultaneously, consider products that transcend industry boundaries, such as cleaning supplies. By offering industry specific needs AND business staples you double your chances of making a sale. 

What are You Passionate About? 

It’s always easier to sell a product you believe in and for which you have a fondness. Your inherent knowledge and natural enthusiasm will be persuasive to customers. A high-quality product will reflect well on your business, as you build reputation and goodwill. Inversely, trying to sell a product you don’t believe in is like pushing a boulder uphill; sweaty work that doesn’t accomplish much.  

Partner Spotlight 

At Logicblock we are proud to partner with dozens of leaders across industries and services from payment processors to fraud protection, shipping to Google web tools. To keep your ecommerce store operating with peak efficiency we partner with high quality wholesalers like:

At Logicblock, We Focus on Making Things Simple

Running a successful ecommerce site can be a difficult and daunting task. Managing customer relationships is just as important as maintaining accurate inventory, and splitting your energies between customers and paperwork is a recipe for failure. That’s why at Logicblock we strive to keep things simple. By creating all your sales orders in one system, Logicblock’s 7cart ecommerce tools make managing your site as straightforward as possible. In fact, our customers rely heavily on our ability to streamline processes that will in turn increase online sales, make management easier, cut costs, and save the most valuable resource of all: time.

A Common Conversation

At Logicblock we love when customers ask questions because we always have the right answer. Here’s a common question we frequently hear from customers:

“How does Logicblock integrate with my backend or ERP?”

We’re so glad you asked! Here’s how it works:

We Send Sales Orders to the Backend

After a customer places an order on your (beautiful and responsive) ecommerce site, the order information is sent to your backend. This includes all the line item and pricing data associated with the customer’s cart, as well as the customer’s profile information. If the order comes from a returning customer, their info will be mapped to your backend, while new customer information can easily be entered on the fly, creating customer accounts for future use.

The Backend Sends Information Back

After you complete your usual procedures, your backend will send information directly to your site so that you have up-to-date access to:

  • Inventory
  • Shipping Notices (w/Tracking)
  • Payments
  • Order Status

In the end, all sales data is stored online in one easy-to-use system.

Why online?

Occasionally we’ll hear something like:

“What if I have customers who never place an order online?”

Well, let us ask a question in return. Do you manage any customers online? If you answered yes, then it really makes the most sense to manage them all online, where you can easily and accurately update product and pricing information, as well as customer profiles.

Making the switch to online only is easy, even with old-fashioned customers. Your “offline” customers never have to login or even visit your site, but you’ll be able to manage their orders on your site. This process also stores your customer’s information online, for the day when they do decide to access it.

Why All Together?

For your team, keeping your sales orders all in one online system is endlessly beneficial. All the tools you need to manage customers and pricing are already built into your online admin panel. Once your data is imported and configured for Logicblock’s ecommerce functionality, your data will always be available in one easily accessible and centralized location.

Increased online functionality has the added benefit of allowing your company to rely less on your backend programs. With Logicblock, there’s no line of sales reps waiting their turn to use the software, your reps are able to log in and place orders from anywhere.

What Your Customers See

In the end, it’s all about the customer experience. With Logicblock’s sales integrations, your site gives customers clear and instant access to products, pricing, and ordering. After all, what’s an ecommerce site for, if not selling? Customers are also able to build shopping lists, request quotes, view pricing information, and edit their accounts, all with the same ease of use they’ve come to expect from your site, courtesy of Logicblock.

With this robust front end, all your sales orders are created online and imported seamlessly into your backend.

What You See

Behind the scenes your site is just as helpful, informative, and straightforward for you as the front end is for your customers.

To Your Backend

Logicblock’s Sales Orders integration sends information directly to your backend, almost as if you’d typed it in yourself. In fact, our software integrations make the transfer of data even more accurate. This method prevents errors from redundant data entry, saving you time and money while ensuring order accuracy for your customers.

From Your Backend

After you complete your backend procedures, Logicblock enables you to import information to your site, allowing you to more easily track:

  • Inventory
  • Invoices
  • Payments Received
  • Fulfillment/Shipping Notices
  • And More

Responsive Websites & How They Work

You’ve spent a lot of time and money on your website. You’ve fussed over the layout, stressed over colors, even spent days experimenting with different fonts. The user interface is smooth, your store is easily searched, and you are finally open for business!

There’s just one problem. When you visit the ecommerce site on your phone it seems…off. The layout doesn’t fit on the smaller screen, you must scroll endlessly to find anything, and you’re constantly zooming in and out trying to read the inscrutable text. The pages are slow to load, and the whole experience is frustrating.

Where did you go wrong? What could you have done differently?

Logicblock has the answer, and it’s just three words long: Responsive Web Design.

What Is It?

Responsive web design (sometimes RWD, or, simply “responsive design”) is a model of website creation that allows sites to be easily viewed on as many different devices as possible including smart phones, tablets, laptops, and even Smart TVs.

How Does It Work?

Responsive Web Design relies on the use of Cascading Style Sheets, more commonly known as CSS or CSS files. CSS is a programming language that tells your browser how a website should look, or “present” itself. Presentational information like font, text size, and color are stored in a CSS file, while the content of your page (maybe a blog post like this) is stored in HTML or a similar coding language.

When a customer visits your site, the CSS file associated with your web page tells your customer’s device how your page should look. Then another programing language like HTML fills in your content.

What Does That Mean for You?

It means that creating new pages is simpler, because there is less coding to do. The same CSS file can be used for multiple pages.

It means faster load times, due to smaller file sizes.

And it means no matter what device your customer is using, your page always looks great.

Why Is RWD Important?

The modern office is everywhere, and deals are made in coffee shops, on trains, in planes, and every place in between. You want your customers to be able to reach your site wherever they are. Logicblock’s responsive websites automatically reformat to function on mobile devices. Being able to navigate your site on any device is important in and of itself, but the benefits of a responsive site don’t stop there.

Mobile-first Indexing

Since 2018, Google primarily uses the mobile version of websites for indexing and ranking. Previously, Google indexing focused on desktop versions of sites, but with the ever-increasing number of mobile users, it made sense to make the switch. In fact, in 2021 there were 4.32 billion unique mobile internet users. That means that worldwide over 90 percent of internet users primarily use a mobile device. If you want your website to create and maintain a high Google ranking, you’ll need a dynamic mobile website, and the fastest, most effective way to do that is with responsive design.

Cost Effectiveness

Without responsive design you’ll have to maintain multiple sites for mobile and non-mobile users, and that sort of inefficient redundancy will get pricey fast. Eliminate the cost of paying for additional sites by using RWD to maintain one site that works for everyone.


With responsive design, a change to your website is immediately reflected across all platforms. This flexibility is invaluable if you make regular additions to your website, want to tweak the design, or need to fix a small typo. Just make your change once, and its done.

Improved User Experience

Simply put, viewing a responsive website is a better experience. Eliminate zooming, scrolling, pinching in and out to read a sentence, etc. It all translates to ease of use and speed. The quicker and easier your mobile site is to navigate, the happier your customers will be.

The Benefits Are Clear

It should be obvious by now that a responsive site is a business necessity. With responsive web design, Logicblock makes it easy to create, maintain, and update your ecommerce site, so that your customers will always be able to find you.

How Logicblock’s Data Integration Makes Business Easier

An Exciting Day at the Office!

You’re a promising new intern at a big company with big responsibilities. Today’s task? Bring the daily report to the boss upstairs. It’s a pretty straightforward process. All you have to do is leave the office and head to the warehouse. Inside the warehouse you’re able to print the report from a special terminal that keeps all the warehouse info. Time to head back to the office! Now, type the data from the report into a terminal on the boss’s floor, for them to review later. Next step? Wait in the lobby until the boss gives you a printout to take to the warehouse. Then go back to the warehouse, enter the new data, and print another report. Rinse and repeat! You might not get much else done today, but you’ll definitely get your steps in!

Now ask yourself…

What Year is it?

We know it’s hard to believe, but even in 2022, we at Logicblock come across dealers who manually enter wholesale orders, then manually enter those orders into their ERP, and sometimes manually enter them AGAIN into their CRM.

Logicblock’s data integration software and services cut the need for repetitive manual data entry. We save you time and money, allowing you to focus on growing your business.

The Dangers of Redundancy

Redundant acts are timewasters, that much is certain, but they can also be dangerous for your business. Your online business requires large amounts of data tracking and entry, and time spent on that task requires focus and diligence.

As the day goes on, data is repeated, jumping back and forth between different software, it’s not hard to believe that something could go wrong. The smallest incorrect keystroke can result in accounting irregularities, purchasing errors, shipping delays, the list goes on. Errors compound and before you know it, you’re losing contracts, customers, and reputation. Now your employees are working to undo the mess that redundant work caused. You’re wasting time (and losing money) on both ends of the problem. A very dangerous situation for a growing business to find itself in.

So, what to do?

Eliminate Redundancy and Make Communication Simple

Logicblock ends the need for constant data reentry by integrating data, fostering communication between systems, and streamlining purchasing and inventory processes. Automating, integrating, and streamlining these processes will increase accuracy, decrease time spent on tedious paperwork, and strengthen your online business. Here’s how:
