Well after 12 great years in our current office eCorner is moving.
From Monday 2nd July 2018 we will be located in the growing central business district (CBD) of Parramatta city. Parramatta has become the second CBD of Sydney and now the geographical, commercial and cultural capital of Western Sydney, Parramatta is the second largest CBD in Sydney and the 6th largest in the country. With an $14 billion dollar economy, Parramatta is a major provider of business and government services.
Our new office is very different to what we came from. The heritage listed 1860's stone cottage in Gladesville that we have called home for 12 years has been a great working environment and seen many changes in eCorner. But it is time to move on and our new office has been selected to better meet our needs as we develop over the next 10 years.
eCorner's new office is located at level 7, 91 Phillip Street, Parramatta overlooking the Parramatta River. Parramatta has become the center of Sydney as the city has grown out over the year.
Our new office is located close to public transport and is easily accessible from most locations around Sydney.
If you are contacting us then our phone numbers and email addresses will remain unchanged you can find those details on our Contact Us page.
If you are visiting then you can get to eCorner by car, train, bus and ferry. There is plenty of parking within minutes of our office and all at a reasonable cost.
Our office is just 30 minutes from Sydney Airport.
Level 7, 91 Phillip Street,
Please also note our new office phone number - 02 9893 1870 (our old number will continue to work if you get stuck)
Each stolen record costs retailers USD$172 on average in the event of a data breach, according to the latest Cost of Data Breach Study, the gold-standard benchmark conducted by the Ponemon Institute – and this figure is on the rise. Cyber security should therefore be front-and-centre for any business operating on the Internet, and we are regularly asked to advise on how to manage and mitigate the risks of operating online.
When WordPress was introduced in 2003, it started out merely as a solution to create blogs. However, things have changed. WordPress has become an incredibly feature-rich content management system that caters to the most sophisticated needs of bloggers and website owners alike. Today, approximately 25 percent of all sites on the entire World Wide Web use WordPress.
While there are many eCommerce solutions out there for Wordpress, the management of security and Payment Card Industry (PCI) compliance have always been serious and complex issues to solve. This has led to thousands of security breaches on Wordpress sites.
By combining your Wordpress site with a secure, hosted online store from eCorner stores, you can take all of the stress around security away while still having all your products for sale directly from the online store. Additionally, you can access all the other great features of a hosted online store from eCorner, such as integrated eBay, Amazon and Facebook shop channels, advanced shipping and payment options and connections to your back office systems like Xero accounting.
Setting up your eCorner store is easy and connecting with Wordpress via the ePages plug-in only takes a couple of minutes – and there are no additional costs involved.
