The Problem

In 2017, the customer was  a growing e-commerce business, recognized the need for a partner to assist with end-to-end catalog management for the launch of its website. As the business continued to grow, they realized that in order to focus on its strategic priorities, it needed to outsource certain in-house operations such as HR, finance, and supply chain management. In today’s increasingly automated business environment, the customer recognized that it needed to develop automated tools to streamline these processes. The challenge for them was finding a partner that could not only assist with catalog management but also provide the expertise and resources necessary to automate and optimize in-house operations.
