Finding The Right Fit
Selecting the Right Ecommerce Platform for Your Business Needs
When it comes to ecommerce platforms, we offer a wide variety of choices and a wealth of system expertise. But what truly distinguishes us is the way we work with you to thoroughly understand your goals and help you find the right platform for your ebusiness needs.
In our quest to identify the best platform for your specific requirements, we do not get side tracked by either the dizzying choice of technologies or the promising new trends that shape the ecommerce industry. Don't get us wrong: We are excited about multi-channel integration, omni-channel selling, mobile commerce, and more. But rather than forcing every innovation on you, we leverage our unique blend of technological and ecommerce expertise to cut through the clutter and come up with a solution that is right for your enterprise.
Following a Systematic Selection Process
Here is how we go about it: We analyze your market and your business. In particular we look at the number and the variety of products you offer, the amount of traffic you generate today and expect to generate in the foreseeable future, and the features your business requires both on the front and the backend.
Clearly the more products and product varieties you sell, the more traffic you sustain, and the more bells and whistles you require, the more robust your platform needs to be. But an expensive, powerful solution is not necessarily the best answer for you.
Other factors that need to be weighed include your budget, the number of attributes your products require to accurately describe them, whether your site will need to integrate with an existing ERP and other back-office systems, how customizable it should be, and what marketing features it should offer. Together we will also have to determine your platform needs in terms of scalability and reporting.
Finally, we will review the multichannel-capabilities you require. At the very least, your ebusiness will need to be mobile-friendly both for users and for administrators. As a larger retailer, you will want to provide your clients with a true omni-channel shopping experience. That means you will require a platform that allows for a seamless multichannel integration.
While there are many platforms and technologies available, ECommerce Partners will help you zero in on the choices that make the most sense for you and pick the platform that is best suited for your business.
