In January, Doctus announced its partnership with VTEX, the digital commerce platform for enterprises that allows brands and retailers to achieve faster time-to-market, reach their customers through any channel and discover new growth areas. This means that Doctus has the technical and business knowledge within its portfolio to implement VTEX e-commerce.
VTEX is a SaaS platform, like Shopify or Woocomerce. This kind of platforms, according to a Forrester study, concluded that it is much faster and more affordable for a business to use this kind of solutions due to their direct and indirect costs. This may be one of the factors that justify the growth in the search for software as a service, in other words, e-commerce platforms where the virtual store does not own the source code, according to Forbes.
If you currently require for your business the implementation of B2B or B2C ecommerce, VTEX is the best alternative and with us, you can have a consultation and implementation tailored to your needs, do not hesitate to contact us. Here are 6 reasons that will help you to make that decision:
1. Flexibility and customization capabilities
Although software as a service technologies do not offer the source code to the customer, the evolution of the last few years has made customization fully possible. Today, several companies already offer modules where the merchant can customize the system even without access to the source code.
2. Don’t worry about data center infrastructure
All management responsibility is agreed in a contract with the supplier, leaving the merchant free to work exclusively on his online store. As the provider provides the same service for several stores, an increase in scale and quality is to be expected.
Daily software updates with no development, installation or merge costs. This is a direct cost benefit, since all updates are made available free of charge, with no need to pay for development, new installation or version migration.
Software as a service platforms, because of their greater capacity for evolution in the medium and long term, have already adapted to integrate online and offline channels. Many tools already enable the native implementation of these strategies.
4. Security in payment methods
One of the crucial points is security. In this model, platforms invest heavily not only in global certifications like PCI Compliance, but also frequently adopt the best market practices, developing new tools to ensure security at the time of payment.
5. Cost and agility
The software as a service platform has a low cost compared to the On-Premises model where there is a need for technical expertise and the hiring of outsourced companies to act in the development and maintenance. The time-to-market is also an advantage: projects are delivered between 60 and 120 days while in other models, the time to launch can exceed 180 days.
6. 100% focus on the business
The suppliers are the ones who should focus on the technology, so leave that issue with them. One of the main differentials of the Software as a Service model is to keep the merchant focused on business and sales.
