Why Fast Growing SMEs Use PosifyRetail?


Online-to Offline (O2O) commerce is a new business model which is the coordination between the network world and the real world. It is an effective strategy to drive more purchases from online stores to physical stores or vice versa. With the growing trend of the e-business technology, retailers can no longer rely on the single channel but the combination of both online and offline, this evolves to O2O commerce now.

Most of the enterprises agree that O2O is a prevailing marketing trend, but it is difficult for many SMEs to create their own O2O platform like the other leading enterprises do due to their limited technology level and capital, they cannot solve their retailing problems fundamentally, and it hinders the sustainable development of a company.


The problems that fast growing SMEs may face include:


  1. Lack of Talent and Skills


Nowadays, digital technology is reshaping the global business landscape. SMEs are eager to digitalize and transform, however, they are lack of know-how. 


  1. Critical Data and Information Between Online and Offline are Out of Sync


It is definitely a big trouble when the stock inventory between shops, order promotion and member data are unable to synchronize because the merchants can only handle the data manually, which will lower the effectiveness and have a higher risk that errors occur. What’s more, because of the inconsistence between online and offline, this results in unsatisfactory shopping experience to customers, which will damage customer loyalty.


  1. Limited Function of Customer Management and Data Analysis System


The rationale behind repeat sales generation is how retailers attract new customers and maintain existing customer relationships. It is all related to full functional CRM. The fast-growing SMEs, however, could not afford the high cost of a comprehensive CRM system. As a result, they can solely reply on traditional and ineffective ways to attract customers.
