In recent years, the evolution of e-commerce has reinvented the way we do business, paving the way for companies to reach global audiences. E-Commerce vendors in the US and traditional big brand entities seek global footprints to increase their sales and client bases abroad At the same time, companies based outside the US also endeavor to globalize their brands with a US presence. Prior to the technological advances that normalized shopping online, companies outside the US often opened branch offices in the US to better manage their global operations from a local perspective. This complicated process involved not only many legal twists and turns but companies often encountered issues in connection with:
- Cultural differences
- Language barriers
- Bank currency conversions
- Time zones and work schedules
- Metric system conversions
- Shipping costs that vary from state to state
- Time and effort acquiring or renting office spaces
- Training personnel to run their branch offices
