Digital business services provider, Columbus, has 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 have become key differentiators.
This partnership will allow Columbus to provide SMEs with the ability to create a plug and play webshop designed to maximise sales potential and operate seamlessly across the business on a single platform.
Eleanor Walsh, Region Manager UK&I, Sana Commerce said, “we're delighted that Columbus have aligned with Sana. We're hugely confident that by working closely with Columbus in the future, we’ll ensure many more SMEs can benefit from our unique market-leading e-Commerce solution, whilst further leveraging the strength of their existing Microsoft Dynamics ERP.”
Mark Thompson, Client Services Director, Columbus added, “Columbus evaluated many e-Commerce solutions for SMEs and we truly believe that Sana is the best solution to help businesses either get up and running quickly or improve operations and the customer experience without a long, painful integration project. Additionally, Sana supports our vision to make life easier for SMEs, so they can stick to what they do best. Their fully integrated e-Commerce platform combined with our Microsoft Business Central quick starts allow businesses to become more agile and automated faster. Customers can truly leverage Microsoft Dynamics Business Central and use e-Commerce as a platform for continued growth.”
