Although live commerce has made its way in some North American markets, the platforms available are not scalable. The transition from a regular e-commerce platform to live commerce is tedious. To tackle this issue, Chris and his team, under the supervision of Amer Abu-Khajil, Director of Product & Innovation, have created a solution which works on the existing platform bringing live shopping directly to an online store on Shopify.
Live shopping lets you play an active role in the success of your online store while providing a unique online shopping experience for your customers. Through Shop Studio Live, you can greet your customers in real-time, interact and engage with them while they shop online – creating an urgency to buy and host engaging live shopping events.
Although Chris graduated from the University of British Columbia in Russian & History, technology “runs in his DNA”. From programming a simulation game called ‘lemonade stand’ on his grandmother’s computer as a kid to being surrounded by friends and family who were working in the tech industry, “It’s always been something I’ve always been very fascinated with. The curiosity that I grew up with has taken me to where I am today.”
Chirs believes that we all need to embrace technology, as every company is essentially a tech company these days. “Vancouver is an awesome place to do business right now.” The key to becoming successful is to find what you love doing and keep improving.
