eCommerce businesses are targeted to scale up much more rapidly than the brick and mortar businesses. Scaling up challenges are however non-trivial, and require technical support to be effectively addressed. Besides intuitive customer-facing portals, eCommerce businesses also need robust enterprise-class solutions to cope with the growing transaction volumes. The solution needs to effectively integrate front-end user experience with backend operations – for Order Fulfillment, Supply-chain Management, Logistics, and Customer Service and help track metrics like transaction based profitability. Requisition Planning, Enquiry Management, Order Processing, Warehouse Management, Cancellation & Returns Management are complex processes, particularly when the transactions volumes become large, and need automation. Thus the requirement of a robust and customized ERP solution for e-commerce companies becomes inevitable to survive in the fast and challenging environment.

 Increasing business volumes also demand faster transaction processing, efficient shipment scheduling, prompt customer service, and agility in the tracking of various performance parameters to ensure profitability. eCommerce business processes are quite complex and need to work in perfect coordination between the storefront and the ERP solution. Providing solutions for this industry requires deep domain knowledge and years of dedicated practice in this space.
