Working Together to Get IT Performing

The Client

Our client, is a 12 years business group headquatered in USA and operates from multiple countries worldwide. Their marketplace is fully online where products can be sold and purchased internationally by brand name wholesalers, discount retailers and bulk lot buyers. They operate warehouses and distribution networks and act as an integrated servicing platform for the sampling, receiving, quality control and shipping of auctioned lots.

Also they need to proactively protect genuine sellers from abusive buyers.
