3 reasons why you should opt for headless commerce

Intershop headless commerce platform enables you to provide different frontends or user interfaces for different commerce channels, because they are separated from its logic. You can have all your robust business processes from a web application, a mobile app or PWA, a terminal on a machine or via voice control. Imagine your device enabling you to buy consumables directly via a touch screen!

Intershop Headless commerce is fast because you can make sure that data only flows where it is needed. To provide a great digital experience in your online shop, you will have other tools in addition to an e-commerce engine: CRM, documentation management, ticket management systems, CPQ, IoT Monitoring....

A separated “head” will receive all necessary information directly from each source. This ensures that each backend system remains lean and fast. For example, a customer educating themself on a product detail page will receive the images from a DAM server, product information from the PIM, configuration from the CPQ and only the actual transaction is done by the e-commerce.

Interhop Headless commerce also allows you to hire better talent, for you need UX and graphic designers to create teasing user interfaces and backend developers that can focus on your business processes. This way, you can iterate, experiment, fail fast, learn fast and benefit from shorter release cycles.
