Its Time to Go Headless eCommerce

Get ahead of your competition

In order to stand above your competitors and truly leverage the competitive advantage you have built for your business or product; you need to provide a perfect user experience for your customers and partners. A solution based on a traditional eCommerce platform is fine for many organizations. However, in order to present your business in a unique way, and tightly integrate your online presence with the rest of the systems you use to run your business, to provide the best of class customer experience, you just need to go beyond that. Most eCommerce platforms allow certain amount of customization and personalization through settings and themes and add some additional capabilities through a set of plugins, but your solution is still going to be limited to the by the architecture of the overall framework.

Benefits of a Headless E-Commerce Solution

Whether you need to reach your customers across multiple sales channels or well-developed network of resellers and partners, allow customers to easily purchase your products and services using mobile or IoT devices, voice assistant and chatbots, or precisely target your offerings to specific consumer demographics and preferences, an e-commerce solution that leverages a headless platform enables you to achieve those goals.  
Traditional Headless
Development Solution is constrained by the features and capabilities of the selected full stack e-commerce framework. Typically, any new functionality requires changes across front and back end stack. Ability to use any technology stack, framework or library that is able to consume platform API. Changes are easily made independently or core functionality. Without any prescriptive UI framework everything needs to be designed and implemented from scratch.
User Experience Predefined experience for user and administrators. Customizations are limited to capabilities of theming engine. Full control over user experience.
Flexibility Customization capabilities are highly coupled with overall back end framework architecture. Unlimited customization that can be implemented independently from the back end.
