“The summer usually generates lower sales in the local e-commerce. However, in the hot season from this year the sales moved up by 25 percent compared with the same period of 2015 because they increased their online visibility by listing on marketplaces. We have more and more clients that chose this solution because they can easily expose the portfolio, the offers, receive orders and transmit back the associated bills, “ said Marius Panait, managing partner Entelion Software, the company that developed the Teamshare platform.
