In a world of Globalization, trading across borders is the best way to expand businesses. The major driving factors behind cross border International Businesses are high-profit margins, broader consumer base, valuable foreign currencies which gives better tax benefits in the home country and diversification. In a nutshell, you will get a power-packed business.
However, as the saying goes, with great power comes great responsibilities. Numerous strategic aspects must be considered before committing to international expansion and afterwards. Businesses should be flexible to adapt all kinds of changing patterns at local, regional and international level. Furthermore, focusing on your core business, understanding different trade patterns which vary from country to country, adapting regulatory measures, understanding consumer behaviours for a specific geographical market, cross-border logistics, trading in multiple currencies and providing a seamless experience to the worldwide customer over multiple channels can be a real challenge.
While we start the journey to grow our businesses internationally, we need to do all this humongous task with extreme speed and efficiency which is very much possible with the help of Artificial Intelligence – the computer software which engages in human-like activities. Artificial Intelligence is no more a fictional dystopia. Artificial Intelligence can solve the challenges by understanding the changes in consumer demand, predict future trends, better manage risks in Supply chain, strategies to plan better with better logistics channel and manage finances in the best possible way.
Eunimart is one such name which can solve most of the challenges faced while going International. They are the world’s leading Artificial Intelligence-powered E-commerce enabler helping SMEs to expand their operations over 18 marketplaces across 84 countries in one single platform.

Adapting to and understanding the regulations and taxations for a specific country is important while establishing a business with another country. It becomes more complex when Businesses need to trade across multiple countries. It becomes an essential factor in the pricing of the products. Eunimart’s Artificial Intelligence provides Business Intelligence Insights to help customize prices for the same products in different countries depending on the external factors like tax and currency used. This AI lead platform rescued the Businesses from incurring regular costs like hiring more trained manpower.

Another major area where your business can face a greater challenge while expanding them abroad are Logistics. One of the Eunimart’s clients is into Health and Beauty products and wanted to launch their products internationally. The major challenge they faced was during choosing the perfect logistics partner. Since they had cosmetic products which consist of liquids, creams, gels and few of the products contain organic ingredients, they could leak or could have had delicate packaging and get scuffed. Not all Shipping carriers were suitable to carry such products internationally. Moreover, rules and regulations vary from country to country regarding certain products, especially those which contain alcohol and solvents as ingredients. Flight carriers are stricter and even though a few agreed to transport, quoted huge cost and reduced their profit margins considerably. This became a huge barrier for them to expand in the international markets. But Eunimart’s Artificial Intelligence-based enterprise solution platform helped them to choose an appropriate, more efficient, reputed delivery channel. It pulled out relevant data of whether the Logistics provider has any specific requirement to carry a particular product to any specific country while abiding by that country’s rules and regulations too. It became a complete map, providing the best carrier option based on the location as per the product they are carrying at the best rates. Artificial intelligence made the difficult task of choosing the best possible logistics-provider much more efficient and cost-effective.
Artificial Intelligence has thus made business operations much more organized and efficient. Moreover, when you get to monitor your complete business operations in a single platform with live business data along with the predictive reports of future sales, probable revenues and data of potential customers, the business grows beyond the borderlines.
