Total Cost of Ownership

Maintaining an agile ecommerce system that is easy to implement, run, and support, while meeting customer, regulatory, and fiduciary requirements involves highly complex expertise and significant operational costs. This type of integrated Commerce-as-a-Service operation requires management of a broad range of day-to-day functions for the technology platform, website integration, marketing solutions, payment processing, and related complex business infrastructure needs—operations that increase your total cost of business.
