Helping SMBs leverage cloud services
Businesses of all sizes today are looking to transform themselves into data-driven companies. Cloud-based software-as-a-service (SaaS) solutions give small- and medium-sized business (SMBs) affordable access to the kinds of software that enterprises use to improve operational efficiency and customer engagement.
In addition to eliminating high up-front costs for software licenses and hardware to run applications, next-generation SaaS solutions typically support multiple business capabilities such as e-commerce, digital analytics, order placement and tracking, inventory control, and business reporting. They also help SMBs meet evolving customer expectations for 24/7 digital availability and more personalized experiences.
“Like all businesses, SMBs need to adapt to changing circumstances to stay competitive and relevant,” says Premanand Thudia, CEO, SMBXL Pvt. Ltd. “Digital enablement keeps many SMBs viable in any environment.”
Based in Hyderabad, India, SMBXL has helped modernize more than 18,000 businesses in 800 cities since it was founded as Business Central in 2011. The company rebranded to SMBXL (for small and medium business excellence) in 2018. The company developed its Business Central business management suite and Market Central global business network using Adobe ColdFusion.
“SMBXL has been able to use everything that Adobe ColdFusion provides,” Thudia says. “We developed all back-office functionalities using built-in ColdFusion components, API tools, and security features. We can quickly build new applications and scale existing applications to enterprise-grade with one solution.”
