The Trading industry continues to be pressured by effects from the global economic slowdown, resulting in trading firms tackling declining customer orders and slimmer profit margins. Thus, a key goal is to minimize operational expenditures in the face of shrinking revenues. At the same time, trading firms are seeking ways to evolve their business models, expanding through digital platforms to gain a competitive edge by reducing reliance on traditional sales channels, while boosting customer acquisition and revenue generation. Major initiatives underway include the production of innovative new digital products such as mobile apps and enhanced cloud services, all to compress time-to-market and accelerate the sales cycle.
