Otta's take

Sam Franklin headshot

Sam Franklin

CEO of Otta

Streamlining commerce operations requires the participation of various departments, which can complicate the purchase-to-delivery cycle and lead to delays. Hive’s platform helps to streamline commerce operations through a network of operations providers.

Hive’s Warehouse Management System works in tandem with its Transport Management System to organise and economise the operations of eCommerce businesses. Importantly, its network of solutions means that users can give their customers an accurate delivery date from the moment of purchase online. This leads to a better experience that can help foster loyalty and support repeat purchases.

This is an attractive proposition, especially as eCommerce begins to take over from the high street and consumer expectations continue to rise. Investors have recognised this potential in Hive, which intends to use its latest funding round to accelerate growth and product development, with the aim to reach profitability by 2025.
