4 Reasons Why Your Digital Commerce Solution Should be in the Cloud

1. Lower development and maintenance expenses
Developing a serious online store is always followed by high investments in development team. The first design often has to be improved due to the change in regulations (and this happens quite often), so the costs of running a standalone e-shop are constantly increasing over time. The cloud hybrid platforms such as Kooomo allow a single investment in this endeavour. All the updates are carried out automatically, and without any additional expenses involved
2. No need for hosting
All stand-alone platforms for eshop creation require hosting. Making your own server would involve a whole new team of experts and your expenses would go sky high. Opting for a certain hosting provider can be equally tiresome and not always too satisfactory. These companies offer tons of various solutions, and they are almost always either quite pricey, or very slow. Also, the resources are very limited in this option. By using a cloud system, you don’t have to worry about this issue at all. Kooomo provides everything on our own servers and the entire setup and maintenance is carried out here.
3. Speed of updates
When a new feature becomes available, or the new regulation in international trading is issued, your e-shop needs to be updated as soon as possible. The ability to get the updates from a single place is invaluable here. Kooomo provides these updates in record time, and you don’t have to worry about it, as it is a part of the regular service. It will not disrupt your business in any way, and the updates will be delivered smoothly and without any hassle from your side.
4. One-time payment
Kooomo does not require any additional funding on a monthly or yearly basis. The licence you obtain when you start your online business with us is perpetual and all maintenance and support expenses are provided via small percentage of the gross trade you make. This is a rather handy option as you will pay in accordance with the success of your online shop. Rebills on every other option can be rather costly, and this is the best possible way of conducting business.
