Anchanto – Simplifying backend e-commerce operations for businesses through innovative SaaS platforms
The Silicon Review
Nowadays, there are a myriad of ways to set up a retail business online, from Instagram-only online shops to global ecommerce marketplaces. And while ecommerce has been around for a while now, the attitude of business owners towards ecommerce platforms has evolved, which the growing popularity of such emerging concepts as the MACH architecture proves. The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic was a critical moment for a variety of businesses. Ecommerce, on the other hand, was one of the few industries to benefit from the pandemic. However, as consumers are increasingly relying on online shopping, satisfying the ever-growing demand has become a significant challenge for ecommerce businesses. Many companies that operated conventional on-premise platforms weren’t ready for such a massive spike in consumer demand. For web stores to handle increasing amounts of traffic, companies have to increase server bandwidth and expand data storage, which requires a significant upfront investment. In hopes of finding alternative solutions, ecommerce companies have turned to software-as-a-service platforms.
