After considering various options to make our e-commerce website launch successfully, we judged that Shopify is the right platform, and that transcosmos is the best choice for us to work with based on not only its credible know-how in building Shopify, but also its comprehensive e-commerce services including fulfillment. Although most of our meetings were held remotely given the COVID-19 crisis, we have worked together smoothly, keeping effective communication. As we expand our e-commerce business going forward, we will need other functions such as logistics, customer support, cross-border services, and more. It is reassuring for us that transcosmos has all those functions. We thank transcosmos for its continued support and partnership with us.
