We make use of our years of project experience to guide you from strategy to implementation.
We use tried-and-tested methods and procedures to meet your individual needs and requirements, thus establishing a successful online solution, whether you’re a hidden champion implementing an international online shop or a multinational corporation that wants to roll out an online shop.
Thanks to our contacts with partner companies such as Intershop AG, hybris AG and Microsoft, we implement online portals on market-leading standard e-commerce systems.
Our experience and expertise in integrating e-commerce B2B or B2C platforms into existing SAP systems characterises our team. We combine e-commerce know-how with SAP expertise to your utmost benefit and offer continuative consulting services for economically successful e-business.
A highly qualified team of developers is at your disposal should current standard systems such as Intershop 7 or SAP Hybris prove insufficient for innovative e-commerce projects. Our specialists in application and interface programming are able to meet every requirement with an optimal solution and are able to integrate existing systems.
Why standard software?
The combination of standard product and customer-specific expansion in the form of a business layer provides the basis for implementing further country, brand and client installations at any time and without major adjustments. Catalogues, categories, ranges of goods, products, prices and availabilities are transferred to the shop system via a central system interface. There they can be released according to defined rules for individual countries, clients and partners or directly into individual shops. Orders are consolidated centrally and forwarded to internal IT systems via the same interface.
Correct architecture for the basic system is important and this consists of stable core technologies and processes and is supplemented with extremely flexible component expansions, preferably based on microservices architecture.
SAP Hybris, Intershop and Microsoft each provide all important features of a future-proof shop platform. The applications are composed of modular components, thus enabling the rolling out of shops with different complexities, and function on the basis of a central software stack.
How to implement your e-commerce solution
Your e-business solution’s implementation doesn’t just involve a technological platform, but rather the interaction of all necessary processes, organisations and stakeholders.
That’s why our first task, derived from your roadmap, is to choose an appropriate technology strategy and set up an appropriate process approach in parallel. We consistently work according to the agile model in order to maintain high flexibility with regards to changing requirements. The business layer, defined with the help of user stories, is set up in the form of various technology components and, if necessary, overwrites standard existing functions. This procedure allows for possible updates and upgrades to migrate into existing on-board resources with minimal effort.
In addition, it’s an important step to identify all functions that shouldn’t be implemented as part of the business layer’s core functionality. These are usually client-specific, very specialised forms or concrete implementation of processes based on a framework provided by the business layer. Typically, these client-specific extensions also include designs needed to implement the storefront.
Overall, this creates a layered model that guarantees more and more flexibility as you move away from core business. In our experience, this corresponds to the firm’s needs.
