Implementation strategy

Find the right partner to implement your digital commerce solution

People are the first and most critical step on the road to ecommerce success!

It seems like there are a vast number of available companies who can manage your implementation - however that is an illusion, and here is why:

  • Many ecommerce vendors might claim to have a vast network of partners, but in most cases, these are just companies that paid a partner fee but never implemented a solution using their partner's platform.

  • Implementation partners rely strongly on your solution provider during the delivery process. Your partner and ecommerce solution provider need to be a close-knit team that can work in tandem.

  • Great implementation partners specialized in ecommerce are few and far between - their services are in great demand and they have their pick of projects to choose from.

  • The right partner might not be a household name. Many companies have been burned by top consulting firms. They could not deliver on expensive ecommerce contracts since they did not have the specialized knowledge that a partner focused solely on ecommerce has gained.

  • A great ecommerce partner will be able to work with bad architecture, but a poor partner will be lost even with the best architecture.

After choosing a partner, how do you enable them to deliver a complex ecommerce solution?

By choosing the right technology for your partner:
Top technology
The top implementation partners want to work with the top technology. Developers do not want to work with antiquated software. They prefer modular, scalable and agile platforms that give them the flexibility to deliver custom solutions.
Open source
Top developers are not interested in closed source solutions. They want to work with open source vendors, where they can immediately access the source code.
In depth research
Hastily picking a top-rated platform recommended by a consulting firm, or influencer, could be a grave mistake - you need to truly explore to find what is right for your business model and your future plans.
