- Partnership enables Columbus to provide end-to-end unified commerce business solution to small and medium sized businesses
- SMEs can be up and running with an integrated solution from webstore to financials in a matter of weeks
Columbus, the global digital business services provider, has today announced its strategic partnership with Sana Commerce, to provide UK small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) with an integrated e-Commerce platform for Microsoft Dynamics Business Central.
According to Approved Index, 1.98 million SMEs do not have websites, costing them over £343 billion each year, with the revenue of UK e-commerce estimated to reach around £70 million in 2019. With rising competition in the SME arena, customer engagement and customer service has become a key differentiator.
This partnership will allow Columbus to provide SMEs not only the ability to rapidly create a plug and play webshop designed to maximise sales potential and delight customers, but also operate seamlessly across the business on a single platform.
Eleanor Walsh, Region Manager UK&I, Sana Commerce
