Scalefast as a Solution
Prior to 2020, many brands lacked the online retail infrastructure required to successfully scale their eCommerce and DTC operations online, as many brands historically relied on brick-and-mortar businesses and retailers to drive sales. The COVID-19 pandemic, stay-at-home orders and new social distancing requirements created an immediate challenge for those who found themselves in need of a full-service DTC eCommerce channel nearly overnight. In the scramble to sort through how to maintain business continuity, agile Business-as-a-Service (BaaS) start-ups like Scalefast found themselves the darling of an emerging eCommerce platform market boom.
