Today’s eCommerce requires innovation at speed. Microservices-based, API-first solutions deliver on that innovation by opening the door to differentiated customer experiences. Elastic Path has been an early adopter of the Composable Commerce approach, enabling sales, marketing, and merchandising teams to launch and optimize digital commerce experiences leveraging best-of-breed vendors into one business-ready solution.

But you already know this if you’ve come this far. Also no surprise that Composable Commerce runs on an open ecosystem of vendors. With vendor functionality ranging from search, and OMS (to name just a few), we partner with you to create modern, agile commerce solutions based on specific business needs. Together we navigate the complexities to deliver a highly scalable, and easily customizable solution composed of best-of-breed functionality.

We’re looking for partners to build our community, reimagine eCommerce, and grow revenue. (That means your revenue too).

So why would you partner with Elastic Path? You certainly have plenty of commerce platforms to choose from, the competition is fierce. Do any of these scenarios sound familiar to you?

  • You don’t want to be left behind when it comes to the latest technology – rigid, slow, monolith platforms are a thing of the past and you want to be a leader in a composable, microservices-based practice
     
  • You want a high implementation success rate to build your customers’ trust
     
  • You want to be a part of joint GTM strategies and business planning

Or, maybe

  • You prefer to work across many modern programming languages based on your preference and skill, without the need for specialized architecture knowledge and language
     
  • You find it difficult to deliver on specific client needs working with rigid, monolithic systems. You prefer flexibility and speed in architecture for rapid deployment
     
  • You expect extensive documentation, guided tutorials, and self-enablement capabilities

If any or even all these points resonate with you, let’s take the discussion a step further. What can you expect from us? A few key attributes of our partner program to consider:

  1. No pay to play modeling. Your investment is your time, thought leadership, and desire to create unique commerce solutions. We don’t require any monetary commitment.
     
  2. State-of-the-art training modules designed for your schedule. You’ll access trainings wherever you are, anytime, at your pace. Our dedicated learning portal provides the knowledge you need to be successful.
     
  3. Progress through our tiered certification levels and be rewarded as you go with successful implementations and greater access.
     
  4. Access to support from sales and partner enablement teams through a range of channels.

Our Customers

The Elastic Path story would be incomplete without our customers. We’ve helped companies ranging from retail, manufacturing, professional services, consumer goods, healthcare, and hospitality spaces realize their eCommerce goals and bring their brands to life including:

Pella Windows and Doors came to Elastic Path with a need to develop an online revenue stream to continually evolve their business. Today Pella has a custom-built configurator that empowers customers to create their perfect windows and doors online, resulting in an elevated path to purchase and reduced cart-abandonment.

Paro is a growth platform bringing businesses and expert finance and accounting professionals together through AI technology and acute industry knowledge. Their community of professionals provides a range of services to clients, from bookkeeping and accounting to highly specialized corporate development and strategic advisory.

Paro successfully launched a customer portal in 5-6 months with the support of implementation partners Algolia for search functionality, Stripe for payment processing, and GetStream for a chat feature.

Luxury jeweler Teilor had aggressive goals to expand their eCommerce presence in the next five years. They were looking for a partner to guide them through the digital transformation towards an omnichannel experience, and the critical future-proofing of the solution as they scale. With the typical buying journey lasting between 4-6 weeks, they needed an experience to balance both the online and in-store components of their customer’s highly personal discovery and purchase.

They achieved their desired customer experience through an SI partnership for migration and pre-built solutions to launch quickly.

How Elastic Path Differentiates

Let me take a moment to familiarize you with more of what Elastic Path has to offer in the way of products, services, and resources.

Elastic Path Commerce Cloud: All the Power in a Single Platform

With core capabilities ranging from cart/checkout to product content management, to payments, inventory, and account management, Elastic Path Commerce Cloud (EPCC) is a single platform solution across channels, (B2B, B2C, or even B2B2C), brands, and geographies. We’ve eliminated the need for messy workarounds and costly development time. Your development time is significantly reduced for use cases across multiple brands, channels, and touchpoints in a signal instance.

But we’ve taken that a step further with value add-ons, services, and solutions:

Pre-Composed Solutions™

For those businesses ready to embrace a multi-vendor solution that may be new to Composable Commerce we offer pre-integrated, business-ready packages for a quicker launch with less risk. Capabilities like search or front- end management are built-in and enable easier customizations and management. We’ll also collaborate with SI partners to develop new pre-composed solutions based on customer needs.

Elastic Path Payments Powered by Stripe

Provide a seamless customer experience at checkout with Stripe’s best-in-class security and fraud management. Improve conversions, support subscriptions, BNPL, and alternative payment methods such as digital wallets.

Composable Commerce XA™

Service and support are a touchstone at Elastic Path. One of the common pain points of a multiple vendor solution is support when issues arise. Our answer to this is Composable Commerce XA. We are the single point of contact across vendors and solutions to identify and resolve issues in a timely fashion. This reduces risk and gives customers greater peace-of-mind when managing a composable, multi-vendor solution that could otherwise be overwhelming.

Migration Packages

We’ve developed the only Salesforce Commerce Cloud Migration Package. After hearing many SFCC customers share the limitations they’ve encountered with an all-in-one platform we answered the call. Through Pre-Composed Solutions, migration services and tools, and the multi-vendor assurance of Composable Commerce XA, we’ve de-risked the transition to Elastic Path Commerce Cloud.

Composable Commerce Hub

While we’re talking firsts, the Composable Commerce Hub is the first and only open exchange of business solutions powered by an ecosystem of leading digital commerce providers. Whereas traditional vendor marketplaces were home to just partner integrations, the Hub includes all the pieces for a brand to combine with the Composable Commerce platform to quickly and confidently launch with a truly DIY, composed solution.
