Real-time inventory availability, real-time promotions and special offers, order and shipping tracking and confirmation, on-line registration, easy-to-navigate shopping sections and advanced search functionality are just a few of the online benefits helping to give men's clothier Jos A Bank a strategic edge.

By teaming up with InterWorld to power its e-business solution, the multi-channel retailer of men's classically styled tailored and casual clothing, footwear and accessories logged a nearly 200 per cent increase in month-to-month sales last year.

According to Jos A Bank CIO Gary Merry, the new retail site is "designed to scale and accommodate our future demands as we continue to grow the business."

In addition, the InterWorld Commerce Exchange integrates with the retailer's existing catalogue systems, allowing key merchandise such as new arrivals and clearance items to be posted on the site immediately for a unique and convenient online shopping experience.
