written by Shaneil Lafayette

Composable Commerce could be just thing you were looking for to elevate your eCommerce strategy. Find out if it is right for you.



Here are the top five considerations for deciding if Composable Commerce will be right for your business.

The commitment to digital differentiation. You believe digital is an intrinsic part of your commerce strategy that allows you to outpace competitors. So website experiences are only one part of the puzzle, and you want to be able to continuously innovate and optimize with truly differentiated commerce experiences to retain and attract new customers.

Flexible architecture is a must. You desire to design your unique vision and iterate without any interdependencies. By leveraging the back and freedom of MACH and the front and flexibility of JAMstack, you want to set your team up to deliver your unique vision with little technical debt.

Out-of-the-box isn't enough. You're unsatisfied with these out of the box features and see the benefits of a building and designing your custom fit solution for your precise needs. By building with Composable services, you want to eliminate that bloating in the backend that usually causes your slight to be slow that are associated with those unwanted features from out-of-the-box platforms.

Quick adaptability. You recognize the need for an agile solution to support your business centric functions. Whether it be an unprecedented pandemic or just another changed customer habit, you want to be able to use quick-starts as well as business analytics and business tooling, to be able to react quickly and outperform competitors.

And, lastly, cost reduction. You want to drive revenue through innovation without hurting your pocket. Due to the rigidity of traditional legacy platforms, customization and other changes impact both time to market and your budget. You want a solution to deliver the best for your business while also remaining in your CFO's good graces.
