Welcome to the NEW Oakland Tactical Website
We have a NEW website! Big whoop right, everyone has a website. What was wrong with the old one and what has changed you say? Well our biggest issue with the old website is that we are both a online store and a brick and mortar store. This causes a lot of grief doing the volume we do because our point of sales systems and website did not talk to each other.
For the customer it causes even more grief due to the inventory being OUT OF STOCK either in store or online and we have to call you and say its not available or tell you face to face after you drove across the state to see us! That made a lot of customers angry and we hear you. We made a huge capital investment in technology so this will likely never happen again at Oakland Tactical.
What are the upgrades?
1. Real time inventory in both the store and online, this is done every ten minutes round the clock. So if you are driving an 1-1/2 hours to get to us you should be able to check out our website on your way (hey,make sure your not driving) to get your shopping completed. And when you arrive it will be here. Inventory gets updated automatically as we process incoming shipments so it will be much faster than we could do it before.
2. Shop our online store anytime, purchase online, then pick up in the store at your convenience. No more rushing from work in traffic to get hot items that have sold out by the time you get here.
3. Your checkout process will speed up if you are a current customer due to our new electronic 4473 process which ties firearms and NFA items directly to your sale, no more double data entry.
4. Online orders will be accurate, the system updates every ten minutes, nearly the fastest in the retail industry.
5. The look and feel of the new site is cutting edge, based on Ruby On Rails this is the fastest system available. Pictures are much more expandable than our old site. The new blog should be helpful as we release our internal and bring in external product reviews from other bloggers.
So if this is your first time at Oakland Tactical or you are a regular customer welcome to the new Oakland Tactical website.
