Why do retailers choose Veeqo over Linnworks to help them sell and ship everywhere?

Veeqo is full of innovative features that Linnworks simply doesn't support. Below are just some of the reasons people at fast-growing retail brands choose Veeqo as a Linnworks alternative.

1. A truly all-in-one solution

Veeqo is fully-loaded with features any retailer needs to manage and grow an omnichannel retail business.

Everything is controlled from a single cloud-based platform – shipping and tracking orders from any channel, buying from suppliers, using our Veeqo Scanner to manage warehouse operations and detailed reporting via our analytics dashboard.

With Linnworks, you’ll still need to use additional third-party apps for vital requirements like warehouse management and connecting accounting software. This adds additional costs to your business, and results in an inconsistent customer experience.


2. Designed with serious retail brands in mind

Veeqo is built to handle the specific needs of big retail brands shipping hundreds or even thousands of orders a day. Our CEO is a highly experienced ecommerce retailer himself, having previously run a £60 million business selling luxury watches as part of a 20+ year career in the industry.

Brompton Bikes, Dove, Harry Potter, Joseph and Car Throttle are just a few of the multi-million dollar companies trusting Veeqo to help deliver a seamless experience for their customers.

Linnworks, on the other hand, is targeted mainly at smaller businesses. Meaning their philosophy and direction is more about helping these retailers save time, as opposed to optimising the experience for their customer.


3. Easy-to-use platform

Veeqo is an incredibly easy-to-use system that integrates seamlessly with your business right out of the box. Plus, the single login area and user-friendly interface means new and existing staff can be fully on-boarded in no time at all.

Linnworks, however, is well-known to be an incredibly complicated system to work. Its desktop software only operates on Windows PCs and takes a lot of time and effort to train staff on how to use.


4. 100% cloud-based system

Veeqo was born as a completely cloud-based solution. Meaning you or your team can login online from anywhere with an internet connection using desktop, tablet or mobile device.

Linnworks was built as a desktop application that can only be installed on a local Windows PC – limiting how, where and when it can be accessed. The interface is also much more traditional and less user-friendly than the likes of Veeqo.

They’ve been attempting to migrate to a web-based interface for a while, resulting in a messy hybrid of the two systems that users have to swap between depending on which feature they want. It’s also taken up huge amounts of manpower, leaving their overall product underdeveloped in terms of new features.


5. Direct accounting integrations

Veeqo integrates directly with the world’s leading accounting platforms – Xero, QuickBooks Desktop and QuickBooks Online. Sales data from any channel is automatically synced with your accounting software, making it easier for retailers to stay on top of their numbers.

Linnworks has connections to Xero and QuickBooks Online (but not Desktop), but only via applications built by third-parties. These come with additional monthly fees, and if anything goes wrong you’ll need to contact support of the external developer.


6. Digital picking with handheld scanner

Veeqo’s integrated Warehouse Management System (WMS) allows for a fully digital pick, pack and ship process – meaning no more wasting hours every day printing off labels, pick lists and invoices. The Veeqo Scanner also brings near-perfect single or batch picking, books in new inventory faster than ever and enables you to easily complete weekly rolling stock takes.

Linnworks offers only old and outdated options. Leaving your team picking orders manually and wasting time repeatedly printing off documents every single day.


7. Veeqo smartphone app

All Veeqo retailers get access to our handy smartphone app – giving key business insights and turning their phone’s camera into a barcode scanner. So you can update stock levels and pick orders from the palm of your hand, and check sales from anywhere in the world.

Linnworks doesn’t offer a smartphone app – you’ll need to be tied to the computer you have their software installed on in order to use it.


8. Built on modern technology, and regularly updated with new features

We’ve built Veeqo on a development language called Ruby on Rails. This is the world’s leading software language, which also powers software applications like Zendesk, AirBnb and Shopify.

Ruby allows us to be constantly rolling out new features and enhancements to the Veeqo platform. In fact, we upload a new version of the Veeqo software about once every day! You can view our live ChangeLog here.


9. Veeqo has innovation at its core

Veeqo has had innovation coursing through its veins since day one. Something that’s constantly reflected throughout our company and product.

We’ve secured £3 million of funding from some of the most high-profile investors out there – such as Tom Singh, founder of British retail giant New Look. And we’ve also been recognised as one of the fastest growing UK companies with our selection for the TechCity Upscale program alongside huge brands like Monzo, Deliveroo and Farfetch.
