In today’s digital world, a company website is crucially important to a business. No matter the industry, a website is the global ‘storefront’ of your organisation, where consumers receive their first impression of your business, and often, make their decision to proceed or look elsewhere.
It is no surprise that business owners are demanding more and more functionality to be included in their websites. It must look a certain way, have certain features, run at lightning speed and feature first on every search page.
An ecommerce platform needs to have power, speed and the ability to be kept consistently up to date with business-critical information such as stock levels, product and pricing information.
A website does not stand alone. It is part of a wider network of systems that many clients will need to talk to each other in order to maximise the efficiency of a business. The most common types of systems that an ecommerce website would need to integrate with are CRM systems, accounting and finance systems and stock management systems.
When developing a website, it is important to keep this network of systems in mind. Rather than just producing a website that meets the clients’ design framework, you also need to bear in mind that, to truly get the most out of their website, it needs to integrate with a multitude of systems.
As a web developer, you are always looking to add additional value to your product stack and the ability to provide integrations for your client does this by expanding what you can offer when developing a website. This could be the difference between successfully winning a client’s business and not.
On the face of it, this may seem like a time-consuming and costly process; however, that does not need to be the case.
