Take online business planning services global, making available a multitude of products and services on the same platform such as SaaS Business Plan Tool, access to training workshops, eBooks.
The business requirements changed since it developed into a cloud-based app from an iPad app, with the need for a commerce platform and more flexibility to support different business and revenue models, distribution and localization capabilities on a global level.
The company was confronted with the following issues:
- Limitations of payment-centric systems to support business requirements shifted our focus towards complete commerce solutions;
- Being able to scale globally to new and emerging markets without up-front investments;
- Flexibility to allow experimentation with different service and product models, the ability to manage an ecosystem of service partners quickly and cost-effectively
"Online services are just starting to show their true potential – we have a vision of bringing together an ecosystem of services partners that support start-ups and SMBs around the world A commerce platform that supports the ecosystem throughout the customer lifecycle, across channels and touchpoints and allows easy experimentation, visibility into relevant KPIs and market agility is clearly a differentiation point and Avangate provides us with that and more."
