Services We Offer
Building a composable ecommerce architecture is like putting Lego pieces together. Each piece stands for the software system or tool you use and plays a vital role in the functioning of the entire system. Composable commerce architecture may comprise tools like content management system, PIM, payment integrations, inventory management software, OMS, catalog, CRM, and others.

Challenges That Composable Commerce Solves
Lack of flexibility
Monolithic architecture is hard to scale and improve, as changes in one aspect can adversely affect the whole system. One of the biggest benefits of composable commerce is flexibility. You can choose the best software components on the market, experiment with new features and technologies, and customize them to your business need.
High operation cost
Composable commerce development enables companies to move from using numerous custom-built digital commerce systems to leveraging out-of-the-box self-serving tools without the need to maintain and support them. This, in turn, can cut their operation costs and streamline the development effort.
By choosing a composable commerce approach, you can speed up time-to-market. A typical development process requires a team to work on consecutive work streams, while composable commerce platforms allow for parallel work streams. The work is done much faster, which speeds up time-to-market and helps deliver new commerce solutions on time.
Under the monolithic approach, you are likely to face difficulties when trying to integrate your system with new software types. Incompatibility and lack of customization opportunities may complicate your growth path. With composable architecture, you will forget about such problems as the system will be flexible enough to be connected to as many tools as needed.
By leveraging modular components and microservices architecture, we ensure that your platform can handle high traffic volumes and accommodate future growth without compromising performance. The workload is distributed between numerous modular services, which increases the speed of the response and enhances commerce experiences.
Need for modernization
Having no opportunity to benefit from the latest technologies, companies move from monolithic to e-commerce microservices architecture. This allows them to test tech advancements such as AI, AR, VR, etc. by smoothly integrating these technologies into their system. Such technologies have great potential to enhance customer experiences and boost user satisfaction.

How much time do I need to launch a composable commerce project?
This depends on a variety of factors, including your business goals, software requirements, scalability requirements, number of software components within the system, etc. The approximate lower bound of the work volume is around 1800-2500 hours. This includes core integration of a headless front-end, ecommerce site, and PIM. The more customizations and composable apps are required, the more time it will take to complete the task.
What pricing models do you leverage in composable ecommerce projects?
We offer two main pricing models to choose from. These include a time-and-material approach and a fixed-price model, with the first being more efficient and popular among our clients.
