Suning Commerce Group's Transformation to O2O (Online to Offline) business
In February 2013, Suning Appliance formally renamed itself as Suning Commerce Group, marking the completion of transformation and innovation. O2O is one of the most popular business models at present. Compared to other electronic businesses, Suning Commerce Group, with over thousand off-line stores, has its advantages in combining online shop and offline businesses. How can the company maximize the advantages? Obviously, the answer to Suning is a reliable on-line platform.
On-line Platform--Lifeline for Electronic Businesses
The operation of E-businesses has to deal with a lot of technical issues, including equipment standardization, opening of system source, cost optimization, highly reliable architecture, extensible scale and deployable resources. Yet, a company in traditional modes differs from an E-business in many aspects because it has to cope with several large-scale promotions each year as well as daily transactions in both online and offline stores. This situation poses a greater challenge to Suning.
