Over the past decade, the internet has changed the way people buy and sell products and services. Greater adoption of the internet and smartphones is the biggest driver of e-commerce traffic across the globe. Several players including digital natives have established their place in the e-commerce market in a few years.
Providing an engaging e-commerce experience has become a necessity for all companies. According to McKinsey, “A successful e-commerce platform needs to continuously evolve and cater to the changing needs of the customer.”
Communications service providers also rely on an e-commerce portal for online sales of their products and services. Unlike the digital natives, driving the customers to the e-commerce site and keeping them engaged is still a challenge for most communications service providers.

A leading provider of advanced network communications and technology solutions for consumers, small businesses, enterprise organizations, and carrier partners across the U.S., was unable to take full advantage of its e-commerce platform. Attracting customers to their e-commerce site, keeping them engaged, and improving revenue generation was challenging.
