“My company engaged Emerce Commerce to assist with the start-up phase of our ecommerce business. Matt Roux, from Emerce worked closely with me on the ‘blueprinting’ process. This enabled me to really understand the big picture of my business concept and how ecommerce was the enabler. By drilling into details, like user flows, with Matt, I was able to see hidden complexities. The blueprint has also given me confidence that the quoted development time and budget are realistic. I would highly recommend the Emerce Commerce blueprinting step for a startup, as an essential process to avoid expenses mistakes further down the line.”

 Leejay Carrozzo, Vivyd  


“We engaged Emerce Commerce to position the role of ecommerce at Kolok and to define the scope for the short and medium term rollout of the online channel. This enabled our stakeholders to get onto the same page and Matt Roux, CTO of Emerce Commerce clearly defined the scope of the short and medium term with a particular focus on a B2B website build. The scoping has given us the confidence that the quoted development time and budget for the B2B website build are on target. We highly recommend the experience of Emerce Commerce when considering how ecommerce can exist hand-in-hand with traditional channels.”
