Specifically designed around user-friendliness and agility
State-of-the-art technology, maximum agility, and even greater user-friendliness create a powerful commerce platform.
More efficient control of commerce processes thanks to new look and feel, optimized workflows, and integrated data analysis
Intershop 7.5 brings an updated layout and improved usability to the Intershop commerce platform. Our new corporate design adds a light and dynamic touch to all applications and creates a smoother user experience. Thanks to the intuitive dashboards and easy-to-configure widgets, commerce managers now have all the key business metrics at their fingertips. Intershop’s powerful analysis tool with end-to-end capabilities, Commerce Insight, supplies real-time data for deep-dive analysis. The new promotion import tool supports personalized marketing, while the product completeness check ensures optimum product data quality.
Market-oriented development and high-efficiency rollout through continuous integration and an improved platform environment
With Intershop 7.5, it’s now for all partners and customers significantly easier to implement and manage the platform. The standard Gradle-based build-and-deploy process enables easier project setup and platform customization, reduces migration effort and project risk, and shortens time-to-market. Vendors can now respond faster than ever to emerging trends and market demands while continuously developing their platform.
Partners and developers also benefit from the improved development environment and standardized framework for configurable objects. Configuration parameters for external systems, payment services, content components, dashboards, etc., can all be defined and managed in a single framework. Ease-of-use and scalability have also been improved, while development workloads have been reduced.
Intershop 7.5 supports Amazon Web Services. Additionally to Intershop’s own hosting models, customers and partners without IT infrastructure now benefit from another powerful Enterprise Cloud Solution.
A customized system landscape and seamless customer experience with Intershop’s Synaptic Commerce API
Intershop’s Synaptic Commerce API reduces development effort and uses well-defined interfaces to enable easier integration of commerce platforms, third-party systems, and service providers. Using flexible RESTful APIs, you can manage the transfer of data and functionality and add new touchpoints to your commerce solution.
With the customer segmentation service API in Intershop 7.5, it’s now easier to create personalized communications with customers. The interface provides direct access to customer segments in CRM systems as well as targeting and personalization tools. Benefits include customized communications across customer segments that are generated dynamically in an external system as well as the assignment of these segments to specific business objects on the commerce platform, e.g., promotions, campaigns, price lists, A/B tests, and catalog views.
