The future of E-Commerce solutions lies in the ability to identify market trends and react quickly to changes. Today, not only do consumers have more choices – they help shape the industry. They are active participants in purchasing, selling and ranking of products and services.
According to Emarketer, Retail E-Commerce is predicted to keep a strong pace through 2017. Mobile shopping is a force to be reckoned with, as consumers choose to purchase anytime, anywhere and its share is predicted to dramatically increase.
With approximately 75% of US internet users already making purchases online, ecommerce growth will rely more on increased spending from existing buyers than on new spending from first-time online buyers. So in this vigorous industry – an excellent customer experience, at the right price, across all platforms and devices remains key differentiator.

Success Story: Upstream Commerce
Upstream Commerce is dedicated to helping retailers around the world compete more effectively, increase sales, and grow profit margins through the use of advanced automated, real-time intelligence gathering and analysis.
Upstream asked Ignite to build a B2B price engine that monitors and compares the behavior of products across multiple vendors’ websites. The key challenges were to create a reliable, global inventory which crawls the web to source prices from retailers who offer similar products and whose mechanism can provide an accurate comparison.
Ignite planned and executed a strong engine which scans retail web pages to retrieve the prices, instead of relying on the retailers to supply them.
The solution combines a comprehensive data scraping mechanism that automatically extracts the info for any web page with a set of data comparison algorithms that matches the product with the utmost level of accuracy.
Upstream Commerce is a fast growing startup working with some of the biggest online retailers all over the globe and is considered the leading solution in its field.Request Free Expert Consultation
