Today, every B2B business needs to be an online business to stay competitive. You must be able to meet customer expectations through eCommerce and do it well. 

However, there are challenges that come along with B2B eCommerce. Between budget constraints, legacy business-critical systems, and complex operations, it can be difficult to find an online software option that fits with your business. Traditional, monolithic, out-of-the-box software platforms were simply too rigid to allow necessary customizations. Custom software, while able to handle the complexities, was too expensive, took too long to build, and was hard to maintain. 

Modern commerce solutions are able to solve these complex problems many B2B businesses are facing. And it’s the reason why more and more businesses are choosing to migrate away from “all-in-one” monolithic software platforms.  They need software that conforms to the unique complexities of their businesses, but they can’t risk the time and money to create extensive customizations in these rigid platforms.  

Over the past several years, we’ve seen Headless eCommerce platforms emerge as the answer to these problems. 

For complex businesses, there are many reasons why you should choose to migrate your eCommerce experience from monolithic to headless:

  • Minimize total cost of ownership with headless eCommerce
  • Gain Agility and Speed
  • Integrate efficiently and effectively
  • Easily extend to new ordering channels, devices, and customers
  • Improve time-to-value
