Years of experience
Headless commerce platform
It allows brands to build and enrich their online shopping experience. With microservices and APIs, commercetools provides the speed and flexibility that today’s digital world demands. As a commercetools partner, Dept is equipped to help companies implement and use this software.
Commercetools can be seen as a pioneer in the field of microservices. These include all e-commerce functionalities, such as PIM, cart and order management, marketing and promotions, payments and internationalisation. A flexible and fast API connects these services to all relevant frontends and applications such as webshops, mobile apps, voice, AR/VR applications and social networks. The following four themes are central to the choice of commercial tools:
Functionality is developed in a modular way in which each function can be used and developed separately.
API first principle
More than 300 APIs unlock all kinds of functionalities one could desire.
Commercetools runs entirely in the cloud, guaranteeing IT performance, scalability and security.
The focus of commercetools is on creating the functional commerce building blocks for your webshop.
Dept partners with Bloomreach, Contentful and Magnolia and offers standard integration for commercetools. Thanks to the ‘API First’ principle, commercetools can work efficiently with any front-end solution. As commercetools expert, Dept also has experience with integrating other solutions such as Adobe and Drupal.
Dept has supported a wide range of companies with the implementation and usage of commercetools. The following practical examples show how commercetools can take your e-commerce to the next level:
- Eurail.com was looking for a future-proof solution which made it possible to build personal experiences with rich content, implement new functionalities quickly and swiftly respond to changes in the market. We used both commercetools and Adobe Experience Manager to make this a reality. You can read more about the case here.
- Goudsmit Magnetics is an international manufacturer of magnetic systems. Digital transformation is very important here for the long term and Goudsmit defined a new digital strategy together with Dept. Based on commercial tools and Magnolia CMS, Dept then created for the company a new online platform.
- Holland & Barrett – At the end of 2018, Holland & Barrett, a Dutch chain of health food shops, chose Dept as their e-commerce partner. Their new global platform was built using commercetools in combination with Magnolia CMS.
We value a great working relationship with our clients above all else. It’s why many of them have worked with us for years as their trusted partner.
