Contractors of all sizes benefit from Boomer. It's a service tool that let's you keep the business you have and a sales tool to get the business you don't. And best of all, pricing is scaled based on your company size so it's affordable. Boomer offers the all traditional tools and reporting for complete order management but also includes a robust storefront that allows exhibitors to order securely online. It provides labor and shipment support, tablet access from the show floor and key show management/association features.

Launch a fully customizable storefront directly from your main web site. Your logo. Your colors. Your message. You'll look like you invested heavily to develop a custom-made solution that truly impresses the exhibitor.

User Friendly Storefront Entry

Accessed via an email campaign you send or a link you place on your web site, the Storefront homepage provides a branded and secure entry point for the exhibitor.


E-Mail Campaigns Provide Effective Exhibitor Communication

For each event, use Boomer's e-mail campaigns to announce key dates and deadlines. Drive exhibitors to your storefront by sending links, generating logins and get them shopping. Campaigns can be used to let exhibitors know ordering is open, deadline dates are approaching, or even that you haven't received an order from them yet.


Give Each Event Its Own Personality

You configure products with revenue types, tax schedules, minimum and maximum quantity required, advance and standard price and more.

While the Storefront is all that matters to the exhibitor, the administration side of Boomer Commerce® is what makes it possible to keep "the lights on" and manage your entire order management process. In fact, when the customer places the order, it's the beginning of an automated workflow that ensures you deliver what the exhibitor requested, right and on time. From product administration to supplier commissions to event analytics, Boomer Admin's got you covered. Even if you receive an order on a manual form, you can enter it in Boomer Admin, process the payment, and send an e-mail confirmation to the customer.

Questions?

Here are some of the most frequently asked questions about Boomer for general service contractors:

How much does Boomer Commerce® cost?
Boomer Commerce® is priced as an annual subscription fee and varies depending on your annual gross exhibitor services and show management revenues. You should anticipate the price point to be less than one percent of your overall revenues. There is a modest set-up fee to help you organize your products, train users and prepare your store for the Grand Opening, but no large upfront costs.
What hardware or other software is needed?
Nothing except your browser. Boomer Commerce® is fully hosted in a professional colocation environment with a company called Colospace. There are no additional hosting fees and everything is included in the annual subscription price. Boomer Admin runs best in Internet Explorer 11.0 and above but is compatible with Google Chrome or Safari browsers.
Do you integrate with QuickBooks or other accounting packages?
Since Boomer replaces many of the detailed tasks of an accounting package, such as generating invoices, receipts and accounts receivable reports, integration is not required. Boomer can generate reports which provide summary-level totals you can periodically post into your accounting system for an accurate profit and loss, but for any order details and balances, Boomer represents the book of record.
What is the implementation and training process?
Once you decide to implement Boomer Commerce®, we’ll work with you to set up product price lists and configure your storefront. The process is straightforward and is done all via telephone and the web. Full online documentation is provided including brief videos that walk you step-by-step through key tasks.)
How secure is my data and my customers' credit card information?
Boomer's hosting environment at Colospace is PCI-compliant data center. Boomer Commerce® 3.X has been validated as a PA-DSS application by the PCI Security Standards Council. Visit the PCI Security Standard Council web site to see our official listing (and while you're there, check and see who else is there -- or not). We are the only exhibitor ordering system to have been certified against the rigorous 3.2 standard. PCI certification against the latest standard is very important -- to you, your customers and your merchant bank.
What kind of technology was used to develop Boomer Commerce®?
Boomer is developed using Microsoft’s ASP.NET 4.0 and SQL Server 2008 database. Programming is in .NET C# (C-sharp), HTML, JavaScript, and Transact SQL (the language of SQL Server 2008). The database has been designed and configured for performance and scalability. Reports use Microsoft Reporting Services.
