According to the VISA’s data in 2021 – the world’s leading electronic payment technology company, up to 87% of Vietnamese consumers surveyed are currently using home delivery services, of which 82% said that the first time they used this service was since the Covid-19 outbreak occurred.

That further confirms that social distancing and work-from-home models have led to significant consumer shopping behavior changes. In particular, the transition from the direct shopping experience to e-commerce has taken place rapidly in just a few months. One of the industries that have benefited the most from the boom in the e-commerce market is eGrocery.

So, what is eGrocery?

eGrocery (or Grocery Ecommerce) includes online business activities of grocery products such as food (both fresh and prepackaged), household products, healthcare, personal care, etc. Product display, ordering to pay, and shipping are all done on the website of eGrocery businesses.

Some successful eGrocery businesses in the Vietnamese market are Bach Hoa Xanh, An Nam Gourmet, Organica, Farmer’s Market, etc.

The potential of Vietnam’s eGrocery market

Covid-19 is a powerful catalyst, one of the impulses to boost the grocery industry’s demand for shopping for essential products. According to a report from iPrice, websites specializing in the grocery business grew by 45% in traffic when people started staying at home to prevent the epidemic. After the social distancing eases, this trend remains stable, increasing by 10% by the end of 2021. eGrocery is the only industry that has maintained solid growth throughout the pandemic since the beginning of the pandemic, with search demand still increasing steadily.

Additionally, with revenue coming from the U.S, the worldwide eGrocery market is also highly active. The grocery e-commerce business is anticipated to surpass $20 billion in 2021 and $24 billion in 2023 (Statista). According to Redseer’s report, India’s eGrocery market is estimated to reach $10.5 billion by 2023.

Seeing the vast potential that the eGrocery market may bring, now there are many “big guys” not from the traditional grocery industry who also jump in to fight for this lucrative “piece of cake” like Con Cung, Kids Plaza, etc.

Case Study

BigBasket – The giant in the eGrocery market in India

BigBasket was founded in 2011 by V.S. Sudhakar, Hari Menon, V.S. Ramesh, Vipul Parekh, and Abhinay Choudhari. In May 2021, Tata Group’s acquisition of 64% of BigBasket shares helped push BigBasket’s valuation to $1.85 billion.

BigBasket – The giant in the eGrocery market in India

By promoting the research and development of transportation services and expanding the logistics function system in the enterprise’s e-commerce website, in 2016, BigBasket made fast deliveries within 60 minutes. In the same year, BigBasket also built a B2B delivery service to serve the food needs of restaurants and customers in major Indian cities. This business strategy has been a solid stepping stone for the BigBasket brand in the Indian online department since 2017

Blinkit (Formerly Grofers) – Fastest Delivery Business in India

Grofers is India’s 3rd largest grocery e-commerce platform, with about 13% of the market share, behind only BigBasket (37%) and Amazon (15%). Founded in 2013 by two technology engineers, Albinder Dhindsa and Saurabh Kumar, after the two founders noticed a massive gap in the local logistics services.

Blinkit – Forerunner of Grofers: The fastest delivery business in India

Initially, Grofers only specialized in supplying grocery products such as packaged food, bakery products, mother and baby care, pets, etc., to local grocery stores, medical, restaurants, or supermarkets. But thanks to the advancements in technology successfully applied in the e-commerce strategy, Blinkit has rapidly expanded its business successfully in 28 Indian cities.

On December 13, 2021, Grofers officially changed its brand name to Blinkit to deliver within 10 minutes. Like BigBasket, Blinkit also focuses on developing its logistics system and expanding its network of partner brands on its e-commerce website. Blinkit has more than 60 partners in New Delhi, more than 30 partners in Gurgaon, and many in Mumbai, Kolkata, Bengaluru, etc.

Bach Hoa Xanh – MWG’s strategic card in the eGrocery market

Bach Hoa Xanh is a mini supermarket chain selling fresh food and necessities under the Mobile World Joint Stock Company (MWG). Bach Hoa Xanh has nearly 2,000 stores across the South, East, and South Central provinces. According to iPrice, this website is in the top 5 most visited e-commerce websites in Vietnam, just behind four e-commerce platforms (Shopee, Lazada, Tiki, and Sendo).\

Blinkit - Forerunner of Grofers: The fastest delivery business in India
Bach Hoa Xanh – MWG’s strategic card in the eGrocery market

Since its establishment in 2015, Bach Hoa Xanh has advocated two key campaigns, competing with traditional markets and developing e-commerce websites. At first, Bach Hoa Xanh set up branches at selling points near the market, but in suburban areas and provinces, the space rental cost is much more affordable than in the central area. At the same time, the company creates a website system to boost online sales channels and draw in customers who enjoy making purchases online, particularly young people.

These days, the company has officially entered the Vietnamese retail “triad association” with Saigon Coop and WinMart (formerly VinMart), achieving a record of 26,300 billion VND in revenue in 2021 – an increase of 38% compared to the first 11 months of 2020.

Besides Bach Hoa Xanh, some other successful businesses have been applying grocery e-commerce, such as An Nam Market (specializing in serving foreign customers or former international students in Vietnam); Organica (focusing on offering customers from around the world ecologically friendly items), etc.

eGrocery is still in development and has not yet formally taken off. Thus the market’s growth potential is still tremendous despite the existence of several major companies. To confidently enter this lucrative market, grocery stores in Vietnam can use the lessons learned from their forebears and select a platform to construct a website system that fits the e-commerce business model.

Our company – SECOMM has been partnering with many big enterprises such as An Nam Group (Vietnam), Jasnor (Australia), and Changi Airport Group (Singapore). We are aware of the challenges and worries faced by firms while developing an e-commerce website system.

Customization: Users have the flexibility to tailor the interface and configure the system to meet their individual needs. This includes modifying screen layouts, customizing function buttons, and setting options to align with specific business operations.

Invoice Formatting Limitations: Clover has some limitations regarding invoice formatting and customization, which can pose challenges for businesses with specific requirements for invoice formats and content. For example, adding special liquor consumption taxes, collecting stamps on invoices for grocery stores, and so on.

POS System Migration Challenges: If a business has been using a different POS system and intends to switch to KORONA POS, the transition process can be intricate and may require a significant investment of time, effort, and resources to migrate all data effectively.

Feature Limitations: In comparison to certain other POS systems, VNPAY-POS has limitations in its feature set, particularly in tailoring solutions to meet the specific needs of individual businesses.

Hardware Compatibility: VNPAY-POS mandates specific hardware prerequisites for operation, such as tablets or mobile devices supported by VNPAY. This could necessitate an initial investment for adopting VNPAY-POS.

What Is POS Why Your eCommerce Business Need It

The Point of Sale (POS) software system stands as a crucial management system for all types of enterprises, be it online, offline, or O2O (online to offline) businesses.

What is POS? 

POS or Point of Sales is sales management software that empowers businesses to efficiently monitor all their business activities, anytime and anywhere. In essence, POS is a complete system comprising both hardware and software components, or it can be as straightforward as a point-of-sale device, such as a computer, tablet, smartphone, receipt printer, and so on. 

What Is POS Why Your eCommerce Business Need It - What is POS
What is POS?

With its robust management capabilities, POS helps businesses oversee and process sales transactions, calculate payments, generate invoices, manage inventory, handle customer relationships, and deliver crucial insights regarding sales performance.

Types of POS system

There are four main types of POS systems that businesses commonly use today, including Legacy POS system, Tablet-based POS system, Mobile POS system and Cloud-based POS system. 

What Is POS Why Your eCommerce Business Need It - Types of POS system
4 Types of POS system

Legacy POS system

The Legacy POS system, also known as on-premise POS, is a type of point-of-sale system that relies on conventional hardware and software to handle sales transactions and manage local data. This means that all transactions and information are stored on a single device, with businesses only able to access the data from that specific device.

As a result, traditional POS systems often require installation and configuration at each individual point of sale, and they typically lack remote accessibility. This can slow down the integration process with eCommerce systems.

For example, some legacy POS systems include Aloha, Oracle MICROS, Squirrel Systems, and more.

Tablet-based POS system

A Tablet-based POS system is a type of POS system that employs tablets as the main devices for processing sales transactions, rather than relying on conventional computers or standalone POS equipment.

Due to its reliance on hardware that is familiar to many, integrating this POS system with eCommerce platforms and training staff tends to be more straightforward compared to legacyPOS systems.

Examples of well-known Tablet-based POS systems include Lightspeed POS, Square, Shopify POS, and others.

Mobile POS system

A Mobile POS system is a type of POS that employs mobile devices like smartphones, tablets, or wearable devices for handling sales transactions. This allows sales staff to move freely within the store or conduct transactions directly at the customer’s location.

This functionality enables sales associates to access product details and customer records via the Mobile POS system, facilitating inventory checks and offering personalized recommendations to customers. Just like Tablet-based POS systems, integrating and training staff to use Mobile POS systems is generally uncomplicated.

Some widely used Mobile POS systems include Lightspeed POS, Clover, Square, and others.

Cloud-based POS system

A Cloud-based POS system leverages cloud computing technology to store and process sales data. Instead of keeping data on local computers or in-house servers, this system adopts an online approach to manage and access data from any device with an internet connection.

The majority of modern POS systems are cloud-based because they offer various advantages, including remote accessibility, flexibility, easy integration, and scalability. They enable businesses to oversee multiple points of sale from a unified platform, providing real-time data and insights for informed decision-making. Furthermore, Cloud-based POS systems reduce hardware demands and installation costs when compared to other POS solutions.

Some prominent examples of top Cloud-based POS systems for businesses include Lightspeed POS, Square, Clover, and others.

Streamlined Sales Process

The POS system streamlines and automates the sales process, ensuring faster and efficient transactions. Businesses can swiftly process payments, precisely calculate totals, and produce invoices or receipts within mere seconds.

Improved Inventory Management

The POS system empowers businesses to actively monitor and manage their inventory in real-time, receiving alerts when products are running low and automatically initiating reorder processes. This helps prevent stock shortages or excess inventory, ultimately optimizing inventory levels and reducing storage expenses.

Accurate Sales Reporting

The POS system offers the ability to analyze and report detailed revenue data, empowering businesses to monitor their performance, understand consumer trends, identify favored products, and so forth. Consequently, this data forms the basis for businesses to strategize for the future.

Efficient Employee Management

The POS system simplifies the process of monitoring each employee’s sales volume, work hours, and performance indicators. Consequently, businesses can obtain precise data for calculating individual commissions, streamline payroll processing, and identify high-performing team members or those requiring further training.

Overall, POS stands as a vital management software within any eCommerce business framework. Businesses should conduct thorough research on different POS system types to choose the most fitting and effective management software in line with their business model and strategy.

6 Best ERP Softwares for Enterprise-level Businesses

Data holds significant value for eCommerce enterprises across all sizes, yet effectively managing and monitoring it is no simple task. Hence, the advent of ERP software emerges as a superior solution, enabling the amalgamation of all business data into a singular database for seamless accessibility, analysis, and oversight.

Nevertheless, to fully unlock the capabilities of ERP, businesses must opt for software equipped with features aligned with their specific business requirements. Recently, six prominent ERP software solutions are widely adopted by many eCommerce enterprises: Oracle Netsuite, Acumatica, Odoo, Sage x3, SAP S/4 HANA, and Microsoft Dynamics 365.

What is ERP?

ERP stands for Enterprise Resource Planning, is a software solution designed to assist businesses in gathering, storing, analyzing, and overseeing all data pertaining to their business operations from diverse internal departments, all within a single database. This data encompasses:

  • Business financial data
  • Sales and marketing data
  • Production, inventory, and supply chain data
  • Human resource management functions, and more

Integrating ERP software into eCommerce operations empowers businesses to centrally manage data originating from multi-channel sales and marketing endeavors, encompassing sources like websites, social media, mobile devices, and brick-and-mortar stores.

6 Best ERP Softwares for Enterprise-level Businesses - What is ERP
What is ERP

Types of ERP Systems

On-premise ERP

On-premise ERP software, also referred to as ERP in-house, is installed and stored directly on the business’s servers and internal infrastructure. When utilizing on-premise ERP, the business assumes responsibility for managing hardware, IT infrastructure, software updates, and maintenance.

Cloud-based ERP

Cloud-based ERP software is supplied, stored, and managed by a third-party provider. This allows users to access it remotely from any device with an internet connection and is also known as Software as a Service (SaaS). In this scenario, the provider takes charge of infrastructure management, encompassing servers, storage, data backups, updates, and software maintenance.

Hybrid ERP

Hybrid ERP software is a combination of both on-premise and cloud-based ERP solutions. In the hybrid ERP model, specific modules of the ERP system are stored on-premise, while others are stored in the cloud. This approach enables businesses to leverage advantages from both software models. For instance, critical data or modules can be kept on-premise for control and heightened security, whereas less critical data or modules can be hosted in the cloud for effortless accessibility and future expansion.

Advantages of Using ERP in eCommerce

Single Source of Real-time Data

One notable advantage of ERP software is its real-time integration capability, which consolidates diverse departmental data into a unified database. This consistency streamlines data management, especially considering the substantial volume of data that eCommerce businesses accumulate daily, much of which pertains to purchasing behavior.

As a result, when integrating this data with other business information, enterprises can uncover and implement distinctive approaches to:

  • Cultivate brand identity
  • Increase sales
  • Create marketing campaigns to enhance conversions
  • Trim unnecessary operational expenses, and more

For instance, ERP software provides businesses with reports encompassing details about best-selling products, canceled orders, recurring customer lists, cart abandonment rates, interactions with social media posts, and more. In turn, businesses can amalgamate all this data within a shared database to gain a holistic perspective of the current landscape and swiftly make pertinent adjustments for eCommerce expansion.

Multiple Sales & Marketing Channels Management

eCommerce enterprises employing a variety of channels in their sales and marketing strategy will likely need to evaluate sales performance and engagement levels across each channel to gauge their efficacy. ERP software assists businesses in concurrently managing sales channels within a centralized database. 

Through analyzing integrated ERP data from various channels, encompassing social media, websites, mobile apps, eCommerce platforms, and more, enterprises can understand why one sales channel surpasses others and determine which marketing campaigns yield favorable conversions and which ones require enhancement.

Boost Productivity

Insufficiently integrated business data can lead to difficulties in accessing accurate and updated information. This may compel businesses to manually input extensive data, potentially resulting in errors.

Conversely, the use of ERP can facilitate nearly impeccable automated data entry. Moreover, this software supports other automated processes, like invoice generation and marketing campaign automation, among others. This frees businesses from monotonous manual tasks, enabling them to concentrate on pivotal tasks that enhance revenue.

Odoo Versions: Odoo community vs Odoo enterprise
  • Odoo Community Edition (Free Version)

This version of Odoo is free for users to download and use. The Odoo Community edition offers a wide range of features and modules that support essential business operations such as sales management, marketing, customer relationship management, inventory management, accounting, and more.

  • Odoo Enterprise Edition (Paid Version)

Pros of Odoo

What is Odoo - Pros of Odoo
Pros of Odoo

Ease of use

The Odoo interface boasts a simple and intuitive design, with modules logically and systematically organized. As a result, new users will quickly become proficient without investing an excessive amount of time.

End-to-end Features and Modules

Odoo offers an expansive array of features and modules, spanning from fundamental to advanced, to address all requirements for effective business management and operations. These encompass tasks such as sales management, marketing, customer support, accounting, inventory control, and manufacturing. 

As businesses embark on Odoo implementation, they can initially utilize the complimentary Community edition and subsequently migrate to the paid Enterprise edition, unlocking the full spectrum of capabilities, modules, services, and progressive enhancements.

Modules Integration

Previously, businesses used to store information and data within individual department databases, leading to challenges in accessing and sharing information across departments. With Odoo, apart from providing the necessary modules for management and operations, it also aids businesses by integrating and storing data from all departments in a unified database, facilitating quicker and more convenient management and tracking.

Display Complete Data

Besides storage and integration, Odoo also holds the advantage of presenting comprehensive information. For instance, the ability to showcase detailed and complete data assists businesses in effectively managing product inventory levels on a daily or monthly basis, encompassing future shipments that have not yet been recorded. 

Moreover, businesses can better control working capital by gaining insight into their inventory status. Furthermore, the availability of all information in a unified database fosters collaboration and streamlines the accomplishment of complex tasks. This results in improved workflow processes, enabling businesses to effortlessly monitor interdepartmental processes with efficiency.

It Can Be Customizable

Another benefit of Odoo software pertains to its customization potential. Odoo allows users to tailor the software to their requirements without the necessity of writing code. Thanks to its intuitive and user-friendly interface, individuals without extensive programming skills can also make adjustments.

Affordable Costs

Comparatively, the cost of utilizing Odoo is quite reasonable in comparison to other ERPs. For businesses with a single function requirement, there is no charge for using Odoo, allowing for long-term usage. However, when utilizing two or more functions, businesses receive a 15-day trial period, followed by a moderately priced subscription. 

Costs escalate further if the customization and programming of additional modules are aligned with the business’s direction are required. If a business possesses an internal team to perform these tasks, the development costs can be avoided. In practice, businesses will need to seek support from specialized Odoo experts.

Cons of Odoo

What is Odoo - Cons of Odoo
Cons of Odoo

Customer Support

Because of constrained resources and a vast user base, Odoo is unable to offer top-notch customer support to every client. Certain customers have found themselves dissatisfied as their concerns weren’t entirely resolved during their initial support interactions. Furthermore, the cost of Odoo training is quite substantial, rendering it unfeasible for small businesses to establish a specialized Odoo support team.

Complex Set-up Structure

Much like other present-day ERP software, Odoo’s structure can pose difficulties during the initial setup for businesses adopting it for the first time. This can result in a time-consuming and effort-intensive process of addressing setup-related issues

Complex Custom

While Odoo provides numerous built-in functionalities, being a universal ERP solution for diverse business models worldwide means that adapting Odoo to a particular business type or a specific country requires customization. 

Odoo does offer customization options, but for highly specific or complex customization requirements, it might necessitate developers with extensive technical expertise and experience. This could potentially lead to extra costs for customization and overall maintenance.

Performance & Scalability

Although Odoo can meet the deployment requirements for a variety of business scales, its performance, and scalability may raise considerations for larger enterprises with substantial transaction volumes. Hence, businesses should strategize their development and assess scalability aspects prior to choosing, ensuring effective operations.

With many years of eCommerce deployment and integration of various ERP systems for numerous global enterprises, SECOMM comprehends the challenges businesses face when implementing the Odoo ERP system.
