Creating an eCommerce website or application is quite easy with the tons of off-the-shelf eCommerce solutions available in the market. Although these solutions are great for fixing general issues, they are totally worthless if you have a unique business model with innovative marketing strategy. Consequently, we always recommend our clients to opt for custom eCommerce solution if they are looking for an effective permanent fix.
- Uniqueness: Readily available solutions are either free or cheaply priced. As a result, they are used by hundreds of merchants. If you have a unique business model and you are using such common eCommerce solution, you are undermining your business potential. When you opt for custom solution, all the aspects of your website will be unique and according to your business.
- Streamlining of business operations: Usually off-the-shelf solutions can address one problem at a time. So if your entire website is built using these solutions, you will have to juggle between several software, making the handling of business operations messy and time consuming. The custom solution, on the other hand, can help you do several tasks in one go. For example, with custom inventory management solution, you can manage inventory, orders and shipping in one go.
- Cost effective: Although off-the-shelf solutions may seem cost effective initially, in the long run they prove costly due to amount of time and energy it takes to manage several software. When you manage several processes simultaneously with a single custom solution, it’s more effective and efficient.
