Primarily, CaaS facilitates customer support services, product information catalogue management, experience management, web content management, order routing & fulfilment, payment services, management of multiple buyers, and open catalogue interface (OCI) punch services. Moreover, CaaS supports e-business to provide user-friendly purchasing environment to its customers and obtain insight into customer’s perspective, which in turn helps to plan customer-centric sales strategies. Thus, CaaS provides a highly supportive environment for e-commerce businesses to manage their products and services digitally, with a considerable degree of commercial freedom and planning security.
Furthermore, CaaS can be outsourced to a third-party service provider along with all the responsibilities of maintaining upgrades, storage, security, and data backup.

SMEs require quality IT services; however, a lack of finances for infrastructure setup leads to outsourcing of their online trade infrastructure. CaaS allows easy scaling up or scaling down of SMEs by providing a flexible interface to its users in a highly competitive environment.
