Unsure of how to get started? Drowning in all the advice of the experts online? It’s times like these when it’s helpful to have a friend who knows the e-commerce industry.
Sometimes you just need someone to bounce ideas off of. That’s how we approach e-commerce consulting for our clients. We have a unique understanding of the challenges you’re facing, and can walk you through the process every step of the way.
We suggest all businesses keep an up-to-date blueprint of their currently implemented systems, services, and daily workflows.

This will give everyone a clear vision of the current state of the business as well as inform our next steps. Friends of Commerce will evaluate your solution, create and keep your solution architecture blueprints, diagrams and workflows, then identify costly inefficiencies and any shortcomings of your current solution. (Because friends care about that kind of thing.) Back to Top ^
Friends of Commerce understands that every business is unique, and further understands that no one solution can truly solve every problem. For example,B2B & B2C are two very different models and experiences, each with their own challenges (My glasses probably won’t work for you, for example ). However, most businesses share the same goal. To grow, progress, and stay up to date with evolving technology. We work to understand your business goals and needs, and solve for anything standing in the way!
At Friends of Commerce, we have seen MANY B2B, B2C and Hybrid (B2B+B2C) projects and are experts in the space. In some cases with just a little extra effort your business may be able to easily cater to a user base you’re currently missing. Friends don’t let friends miss any opportunities. Back to Top ^

Either way, Friends of Commerce will ensure best practices and solution approaches are always implemented. Back to Top ^
