When Should you Change your Ecommerce Platform? Here’s What Harvard Business Review Says…
“The growing pains of maturing.” That’s how this article, posted yesterday in Harvard Business Review, describes the necessity of re-platforming — a process that companies “likely do at least once if they have been in the ecommerce business more than a few years.”
Well, I would hope so — at least for those still using legacy enterprise commerce systems.
As this article shares, “all online commerce sites need a reliable, secure, and scalable platform to help grow the business bigger and faster. From payment gateways to apps, customizable themes to multiple sales channels, native social selling to mobile-first checkouts, your ecommerce platform must support your business as it evolves and expands.” Agreed.
