NEW Web Site Offers Secure Shopping & Navigational Ease

Have you checked out the new and improved Encore Data Products web site? With so many data breaches in the news, we knew that customers needed reassurance that their online purchase was secure. We also knew that customers wanted to locate the products they need faster and easier. So, we made some changes to our web site to provide a safer, more intuitive and expedited online shopping experience.

Secure Shopping

We recently upgraded the Encoredataproducts.com online security using anti-viral software from McAfee SECURE to help customers stay safer when they click, download and buy online. The software protects the Encore web site from malware and malicious links, plus detects phishing attacks and other things that can harm customers and their computers. Our valid SSL certification ensures that the data customers send to the site is encrypted by industry-standard security protocols.

Additionally, The Encore Data Products website uses reCAPTCHA from Google, a service that protects the site from spam and abuse. Using an advanced risk analysis engine and adaptive CAPTCHA, it keeps automated software from engaging in abusive activities on your site. It does this while letting customers pass through with ease. Combined, McAfee SECURE and reCAPTCHA ensure that you have a secure online shopping experience, protect your personal data, and prevent viral attacks on your computer or device.

Navigational Ease

We realize that customers need to find the products they’re looking for quickly and easily. After reviewing our web site analytics and talking with our customers, we decided it was time to make some major changes to our retail web site. Those changes included designing a clean, simplified layout; regrouping product categories; developing a top menu with scroll-over sub-categories; creating one-click access to our most popular brands and products; offering “Products You May Like” suggestions; and providing TrustPilot service ratings and reviews.

Inc. Magazine Ranks Encore Data Products on Inc. 5000 List

NEW YORK, August 2016Inc. Magazine ranked Encore Data Products number 2546 on its 35th annual Inc. 5000 List, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment— its independent small businesses. Companies such as Microsoft, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, Pandora, Timberland, LinkedIn, Yelp, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees of the Inc. 5000.

We’re honored to be ranked on the 2016 Inc. 5000 List. It’s a testament to the great customer service, responsive customer base and dedicated team that Encore strives to maintain and improve every day,” says Jeff Burgess, President and CEO of Encore Data Products.

The 2016 Inc. 5000, unveiled online at Inc.com and with the top 500 companies featured in the September issue of Inc. (available on newsstands August 23) is the most competitive crop in the list’s history. The average company on the list achieved a mind-boggling three-year growth of 433%. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue is $200 billion, and the companies on the list collectively generated 640,000 jobs over the past three years, or about 8% of all jobs created in the entire economy during that period. Complete results of the Inc. 5000, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, region, and other criteria, can be found at www.inc.com/inc5000.

“The Inc. 5000 list stands out where it really counts,” says Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. “It honors real achievement by a founder or a team of them. No one makes the Inc. 5000 without building something great – usually from scratch. That’s one of the hardest things to do in business, as every company founder knows. But without it, free enterprise fails.”

The annual Inc. 5000 event honoring all the companies on the list will be held from October 18 through 20, in San Antonio, TX. Speakers include some of the greatest entrepreneurs of this and past generations, such as best-selling author and strategist Tony Robbins, SoulCycle co-founders Elizabeth Cutler and Julie Rice, Cornerstone OnDemand founder, president and CEO Adam Miller, Marvell Technology Group director and co-founder Weili Dai, and New Belgium Brewing co-founder and executive chair Kim Jordan.
