Time to market is crucial
SQLI created an MVP for one country and one brand using SAP Commerce Cloud with a B2B accelerator in less than 5 months. Starting with e-commerce, especially in a B2B context, always lead to new insights about the internal order fulfilment process. And this is exactly what this MVP enabled Etex to do: start e-commerce activities and discover along the way what processes were needed to be reviewed internally in order to streamline this new channel. The designed UX and storefront, focused on operational efficiency, was found very effective by Etex, and therefore they decided to roll-out the platform ‘as is’ to other country markets. As a result, they could profit from an effective e-commerce foundation within the Information System which should strengthen their digital sales channels.
