features including:" data-reactid="16">Global Industrial's enhanced website functionality features some of the newest first to market features including:

Online Returns: Global is breaking ground with the launch of online returns for less than truck load and small parcel shipments, functionality generally seen on leading consumer retail websites. Small parcel returns can be made completely online, with less than truck load requiring minimal manual intervention through an instant call back feature to schedule pick up and complete the return. Advanced tracking status features give customers the ability to track returns every step of the way and see exactly where the return package is in the process.

Auto Reorder: Customers can use auto reorder for products they need on a regular basis such as janitorial and maintenance supplies. Auto reorder means customers won't run out of anything - ever, and allows for the management, editing, and customization of orders in one place. Customers simply go to the last order, check the products they want to auto reorder, set the quantity and frequency of delivery - and that's it.

Replacement Parts: Customers know finding the right replacement parts is often difficult, so we simplified the process by giving them easy access for the correct replacement parts for their product. Replacement parts are now found partnered with their order history or on the product detail page.

Improved Lead Time and Order Tracking: With warehouses across the nation, including our new 500,000-plus square foot facility in Texas, Global has improved lead times and deliveries across the country. In addition, customers can now follow the progress of their order from our facility to theirs. Upgraded order tracking tools show customers exactly when it left us, where it currently is in the process, and when it will be delivered to them. Customers can sign up for text alerts to get delivery tracking information from their tablet, or PC - anywhere, anytime.

Enhanced Self-Service Features: The addition of additional self-service features will drive an improved customer experience. This includes the deployment of a new Global chatbot which will enhance issue resolution for order status inquiry, returns, product questions and customer service inquiries, while providing a friction free hand off to the appropriate live agent who can best help the customer.
