Suceeding in the age of disruption

We live in an increasingly digital world. And this has changed the way Australians do business. Over the past few years there’s been an online market shake up – with up and comers offering innovative, competitive products across retail, wholesale and business services.

They’re doing things differently and doing things digitally. Whatever your business offers, the disrupters may have something to offer you.

Wholesale trading - online

If you’ve never considered wholesale trading, you may want to. You’re looking at highly competitive pricing and the chance to make some money of your own. A true win-win.

One wholesale shake up is Alibaba – the world’s largest online business-to-business wholesale trading platform for SMEs. It’s basically an eBay just for businesses, and they literally sell everything. Plus, sellers are subject to ratings and reviews.

Perhaps it’s the perfect place to make some money off old business equipment or pick up some uniforms, furniture or electronics for less?

Digital delivers

Online logistics is another area that was open to a shake up. Businesses rely on their orders coming promptly and being handled properly, and this wasn’t always the case with big.

One particularly successful disrupter, Shippit, partnered with Australia Post and TNT to offer a better delivery service. They take care of delivery from start to finish, shipping from one or multiple stores. They also give you a digital preview of your order as it makes its way to you. Everything is done online including fulfilling the order online with a couple of clicks.

Your business can enjoy access to more carriers, better pricing, easier bookings, advanced tracking and the ability to ship from anywhere, thanks to disrupters like Shippit.

Mobile invoicing

If you’re a mobile business, you’ll know that invoicing on the go can be a challenge. The good news is, disrupters like Invoice2go are delivering services for these needs. Imagine having professional invoice templates, charts and reports, and expense tracking at your fingertips through one simple program.

Invoice2go lets businesses accept debit, credit and PayPal – anywhere, any time. It can mean less errors, better tracking and more seamless payments for SMEs.
