Commerce-as-a-Service for Digital Agencies

Grow indefinitely with your customers and create digital USPs

Your Customer consistently in Focus

With Commerce-as-a-Service (CaaS) you offer your customers a technologically leading complete package consisting of Commerce Management, Order Management (OMS), Product Information Management (PIM) and Experience Management (EX). CaaS is a multi-client solution with which your customers can implement digital sales concepts for different business models (B2C, B2B, B2X), sales channels and touchpoints individually and as quickly as possible. We take over the conception, development and operation of the e-commerce system. This gives you the freedom to concentrate on digital brand management at the front end.

Enterprise Technology for Digital Agencies

Through our API approach, you can access all the functionality of CaaS and use it for your customers. Independently from us, you develop front-ends based on your technologies for countless touchpoints of your customers and integrate the functions you need. You create new functions, individualizations or connectors for third-party systems with the help of our Microservice Blueprints and secure the advantage in the market for your customers. With CaaS you use flexible and modular enterprise technology and over 25 years of experience of an e-commerce expert for your customer projects.

That's why - choose CaaS!

  • Open up new customer segments!
    CaaS provides you with all the necessary standard functionalities in a high-performance e-commerce platform for B2C/B2B/B2X scenarios. Designed as a SaaS solution, we support the operation of the system while you master the front-end via the APIs. This enables you to attract new customers of all sizes and business models from a variety of industries. 
  • Grow with your customers!
    As projects grow, e-commerce platforms developed for small and medium-sized businesses quickly reach their performance limits. Functionalities do not meet the new requirements, performance is not sufficient and the costs for maintenance and individualization increase disproportionately. Customers have to change the systems and often they change the agency at the same time. CaaS has a modular structure and offers the appropriate package for every company size. This allows you to grow with your customers indefinitely and support them throughout their entire lifecycle.

Blueprint Store for PWA: This is as lean as frontend customization can get

Are individual frontends and digital USPs your specialty? We support you with our Progressive Web App (PWA) Blueprint Store. With Angular, you can use pre-built processes on our solution or start on the green field. Your customers can benefit from the advantages of a mature front-end technology.

What advantages does a PWA offer you?

  • Higher speed through Single Page Application
    The turnover of an online shop depends directly on its loading time. The slower the store loads, the worse. With a PWA, you achieve the shortest loading times. Content is loaded dynamically in a single page application, depending on where the customer is. Its no longer completely in one process. This increases the speed. Take a look at our Demo Store and test it for yourself.
  • Improved user experience
    If the network coverage is low, the loading time is often extended or the process gets even interrupted. Since a PWA automatically preloads content, it is also provided if the network connection is interrupted.
  • Higher conversion rate due to extended functionalities
    With our PWA you can interact with the user. For example, you can automatically send push notifications to reduce shopping cart abandonment. This allows you to use the functions of an application without the need for a local installation.

With the PWA Blueprint Store, Intershop provides all the tools for the development of an own PWA Storefront. In addition to comprehensive documentation, program libraries, reference implementations and best practices are provided. Thus, developers benefit from a mature solution that already answers all questions concerning the architecture, server communication and performance optimizations of a PWA.
