E-commerce

E-commerce in the cloud is basically a hosted online shop – with the supplier taking care of everything from updating your online catalogue to managing the servers. One of the advantages of this approach is that you can expand your shop at will, with no outlay on equipment. Downsizing is also easy. You only pay for what you use. B2B platforms are also available for online trading with your business partners.
