Visicom MediaATLANTA, GA - June 22, 2017 - 2Checkout (formerly Avangate), a leader in eCommerce, payments and subscription billing solutions, announced today that its customer Visicom Media improved eCommerce operations and revenue for its ManyCam product by using the Avangate digital commerce platform, Enterprise edition.

"Since switching ManyCam to 2Checkout from our previous eCommerce provider, we have seen a significant improvement in our online operations, starting from internal efficiencies all the way to revenue gains," said Patrice Carrenard, President at Visicom Media. "We couldn't be happier with our decision. We feel that we are truly being listened to, our business needs are well understood and cared for in a proactive way. The people behind 2Checkout really care about us and the platform is very robust and reliable," added Carrenard.

The Avangate Digital Commerce Enterprise Edition platform provided an immediate improvement in eCommerce operations, allowing Visicom to quickly and easily start testing different layouts and checkout processes to see what would have the greatest impact on customer conversions.

2Checkout (formerly Avangate) also helped Visicom launch subscriptions for their ManyCam range of products for the first time, beginning the company's transition from lifetime licenses to subscriptions and recurring revenue.
