* ■Renewal background*
After the coronavirus pandemic, EC consumption behavior has become established, and the size of the BtoC-EC (consumer electronic commerce) market in Japan in 2024 is 22.7 trillion yen (20.7 trillion yen the previous year, 19.3 trillion yen two years ago, the previous year) The e-commerce market continues to grow, with the launch of e-commerce accelerating and reaching an increase of 9.91% compared to the previous year.

On the other hand, in the field of e-commerce, the number of functions related to e-commerce carts has increased due to the segmentation of customer needs, and marketing measures have become more
sophisticated.As a result, many tasks have become difficult and burdensome, leading to a serious shortage of digital human resources. Masu.

Against this background, in a market environment where it is becoming increasingly difficult for businesses to procure e-commerce and digital human resources, it is important for e-commerce platforms to not only automate e-commerce operations but also be able to easily implement advanced marketing measures. I think it’s a role.

Until now, Mercato launched the “Connect” project in March 2022, with the vision of connecting people, things, and things, and has aimed to provide services that can continue to connect with businesses and even consumers beyond that. I did. As part of this project, in July 2023, we completely renovated the platform to a modern architecture with the aim of dramatically increasing the speed of functional evolution based on user needs and contributing to users’ business growth.

Going forward, Mercato will maintain the concept of “minimizing work, maximizing sales” and will renew its services to maximize the value of the revamped platform and make a leap forward into a service that can continue to support the growth of more e-commerce businesses. It has come to this.

On the other hand, with recent changes in the market, there has been an increasing demand for more in-depth solutions to issues in the e-commerce business. We aim to provide a service that can solve the issues of sophistication of marketing, increase in operational load, and slowdown in growth due to these issues, and grow the existing brand.
We have updated our brand color based on the keywords “automation, simple, advanced, and reliable.”
