Aqurus Highlights: “Building an E-Commerce Business- Lessons on Moving Fast”
As seen in an April 2020 article by McKinsey & Co., the benefits of e-commerce have been thrust into the spotlight, in part due to the COVID-19 pandemic. McKinsey highlights the increased adoption and immediate benefits of an e-commerce solution, one that can be implemented quicker than you think. While Aqurus is feeling the effects of the pandemic like all businesses, we are focused on helping businesses to recover, and pivot towards efficient business systems, including integrated e-commerce in less than 30 days.
What does McKinsey & Co. do?
“We help organizations across the private, public, and social sectors create change that matters. From the C-suite to the front line, we partner with our clients to transform their organizations in the ways that matter most to them.”
What are the advantages of e-commerce?
- Rapid installation. According to McKinsey’s research, a fully functioning online business can be up and running in four months.
- Instant access to customers. As demonstrated by the COVID-19 pandemic, customers are sometimes forced to stay home or simply prefer to do so. With an online presence, this pool of people can be reached instantly.
- Profit gain. McKinsey highlighted one European brick and mortar store which implemented an e-commerce solution and generated a 3% revenue growth almost immediately.
Why is an e-commerce solution something your company should invest in?
Customers are moving online, and the data backs it: “In China, online shopping has increased 15 to 20 percentage points, and e-commerce in Italy has increased 81 percent compared with the last week of February. US consumers have largely followed the same pattern”.
