Migrating to new eCommerce Platforms
In a recent IRCE study shared by John Kinsella, SVP of Strategy for FitForCommerce, it was found that more than half of retailers’ i.e. 60% of them switch to eCommerce platforms in the next 1-2 years. The reasons behind the migration are budget and mobile.
Flexibility was the prime reason for migrating to new eCommerce platform. This was emphasized by Debra Jensen, the VP and CIO for Charlotte Russe, a clothing retailer. Some platforms were outsourced completely, that means the speed to make any change was very slow, and thus had an impact on business growth.
What to Consider when Migrating?
You need to consider few factors when you have decided to migrate or replatform. Firstly, know what you require and the critical elements you need to have in the platform. Be very clear in listing out all the requirements for your online business. Also make sure to consider what is necessary in the front end and back end as well for implementation. Here are a few definite questions to consider or ask –
- How often you introduce new features?
- What is the product’s competitive status over other packages?
- Can third party products be used in your platform?
- Reporting capabilities?
Once you narrow your choices, review your profit and loss statement. Only after going through all the associated costs, that include hosting, ongoing resources and implementation, you can bid your eCommerce systems to our ITLANDMARK eCommerce platform.
