Bradley Priest

A note from our CTO

These are strange and unpredictable times, so much of the world we know has been turned upside down.

As many of us enter our third (or more) month living and working under these new restricted norms, the world of commerce continues to experience disruption on a scale no-one could ever imagine.

Looking back, the commerce ecosystem has been moving steadily online for over a decade, we’re now experiencing the next decade’s worth of change happening in just a matter of months.

As the world has transformed in this first half of 2020, we’ve been striving to answer two fundamental questions here at TradeGecko;

  1. What do small businesses need to survive in a time of crisis, how can we help you keep your commerce engine running?
  2. And, how can small businesses win in this new world?

I try to answer them in this post, feel free to read more about it.

Read on to learn more about what improvements we've been working on at TradeGecko to help small businesses today and in this new future.
