PYMNTS spoke with Co-founder and CEO Omair Tariq in February about the importance of providing enterprise-grade connected commerce capabilities to smaller brands in the wake of the pandemic.

Referring to eCommerce giants, Tariq told PYMNTS’ Karen Webster, “They own the entire technological stack, and as a result, they own the entire operational stack. The journey of their end consumers is massively impacted by it.”

He added that few fledgling companies have the resources to fund deliberate infrastructure investments for years on end.
