Current Trends

According to Forrester Research US, eCommerce is expected to reach $250 billion by 2014 – with an expected 10% compound annual growth rate. Are you ready to handle this demand? If your ecommerce and ERP systems are working independently, then the answer is- probably not.

Many companies forgo eCommerce & ERP integration needed to truly optimize sales and keep all systems running in sync to serve the customers 24/7, 365 days a year to reach maximum order fulfilment potential.

The need for an ecommerce system is usually overlooked because of cost or the business disruption caused by having to change existing systems. Each aspect of your business is affected by a customer’s shopping experience – which means fulfilment processes need to be examined before deciding how to proceed.
