Cloud Commerce Group invests £1m in upgrades and expansion

Cloud Commerce Group is investing £1m in response to the growing demand for its ecommerce-related services.

The Lancaster company has increased its UK development team from 14 in 2019 to more than 30 at present while investing £500,000 in hosting and support infrastructure upgrades.

The focus of the investment has been into the Cloud Commerce Pro and Channel Grabber software integration platforms, which connect retailers to couriers, payments services, accounts packages and marketplaces such as Amazon, eBay and OnBuy.

The business has also invested in development for key partnerships for tools to enable customers to increase sales through strategic marketing campaigns organised by its Cloud Seller Pro marketing agency, and has launched a new training and customer onboarding service to help customers with a new suite of interactive learning tools and strategies to boost their ecommerce performance.

Mark Hallam, co-founder and chief executive officer, said: "We’re investing in the future success for ecommerce, for us as a business, but also because we know our customers need to be competitive and respond to the sheer volume of consumer demand for their products."
