Controlling Costs in the Face of Brexit Uncertainty

With Prime Minister Theresa May announcing that the official Brexit negotiations will begin by the end of March 2017, businesses are starting to prepare themselves for the outcome of this massive change for the UK. One of the industries that has already seen negative effects caused by the decline of the sterling pound post-Brexit is the wholesale industry, where thousands of UK wholesalers and distributors have to deal with higher prices and an uncertain market, until there is an official trade accord between the UK and the EU markets in place.

And while things might look bleak for some businesses at the moment, from what we hear from our customer base it’s certainly business as usual. Considering that the upcoming few years might be surrounded by a lot of uncertainty, it’s time to prepare for the changes that will be implemented once the Brexit is finalized and one way to do that is by considering costs and ensuring that you’re managing your business as efficiently as possible.

This is where cost-efficient, cloud-based ecommerce platforms such as Cloudfy can prove to be a real game-changer. If you’re a wholesaler or a distributor that is also trading online, or interested in going online to grow your business, a fit-for-purpose B2B ecommerce platform can help you accelerate growth and Cloudfy has been designed with the needs of wholesalers in mind.
