The future of e-commerce is now

A new standard in online shopping

The threshold for installing native apps is high. A progressive web app (PWA) is the solution and roughly means a mix of a website and an app. It’s a web app that provides a better experience with enhanced UI/UX and good performance. And it supports push notifications like native apps.

With headless ecommerce we fix the gap between blazing fast native (installed) apps and the user experience we are able to deliver with mobile optimized webshops. The biggest feature of PWA development is performance. When we are talking about performance we talk about the speed at which pages and content are loaded and the speed at which actions can be performed. The performance improvement will result in a better user experience and better scalability.

Why to start with headless ecommerce?

  • Because of little data usage the shop is always and everywhere stable.
  • When the connection is dropped or is not available, browsing and filling the shopping cart is still possible.
  • A better performance will result in a higher conversion rate.
  • Let your customer relation grow with personalized push notifications.
  • Search engines love PWA so it will improve your SEO ranking.

When to choose for a PWA

The webshop needs to be blazing fast

The loading time of a PWA can be 15x faster than a responsive webshop. A PWA works with all available browsers and responds quickly.

You do not want to invest double

Instead of building a webshop and native app for Android and IOS it is now possible to invest in development for one application that will rule them all.

Development needs to be done efficient

Because PWA works over API connections we can integrate functionality directly into the frontend without touching the backend. Bottomline: development can be done faster.

The time to market is important

The frontend and backend are connected with a API bridge. This makes it possible to start on both at the same time. No need to wait for backend before starting frontend development.

Tailored technology stack for headless development

For headless ecommerce development we do have a tailored made technology stack. Per project we decide together with our client what is the best platform for both frontend and backend. We do have experience with multiple backend platforms and frontend technologies such as:

Headless development team

When we start a headless project we will start with exploring the needs and advice about the best approach. After that we will form the development team. We do have a team of specialists in headless ecommerce.

We jointly decide what the Minimum Viable Product (MVP) should be. Including rough estimated project costs and a timeline to get there. Or you can just connect our remote team to an existing in-house team.

 

Working agile to stay in charge

Ecommerce projects are too complex to be done linearly. That is why we divide the estimated timeline into short sprints. Each sprint, we decide together which tasks should be done first to build the MVP. This way, you and the team stay in charge when circumstances change and insights evolve. Our Scrum Masters and a dedicated Product Owner lead the process.

Headless ecommerce team

The Netherlands and Serbia: working together remote

We work from The Netherlands and Serbia. Same continent, knowledge level and dedication. Is it nearshoring? Well, you could call it that. We see it as working together on a remote basis. Being always in the same office space to collaborate and be part of a group is so 2000.
Meet the team

  • With testing, code and visual reviews, we monitor the quality of our projects and improve every day.
  • We facilitate everything for a productive team. Equipment, tools, courses and certification.
  • Our employees can connect to internal, external communication channels and to (daily) meetings.
  • We would like to invite you to come to visit offices and get acquainted. Seeing is believing.

This is our roadmap:

Understanding your business

To create an awesome webshop for your customers we need first to understand your business. Know your future plans and determine what functionality your customers expect.

Define a strategy

Our experienced ecommerce consultants will advice the best technical strategy to approach your ecommerce goals. We will advice what tools and headless technology will suit best for your business needs.

Collect project requirements

Together with our project management and scrum master we will define the project scope by creating user stories. During the project the scope can change, but always with keeping an eye on the strategy.

Form the team

Based on the project scope we will form the team that will work on the project. The technical team lead will take care of the tasks together with the team members. We will follow the scrum principles.

Kickoff meeting

A kickoff meeting is more than just the start of a new project. It’s a celebratory moment with everyone who’s involved. Let’s get the project started!

Sprint planning

Working in short sprints makes the project manageable. Giving everyone enough space to maneuver and responsibly deliver what was agreed upon. Thanks to the help of the Scrum framework.

Reviewing and adjusting

Ecommerce development is a process. We collaborate and reflect regularly, ensuring everyone involved stays satisfied and productive. Striving for the perfect lap.
