Composable commerce empowers online retailers to strengthen their game with greater flexibility, agility, and scalability. It has gained popularity rapidly around the globe, but in India, BetterCommerce has become the precursor of this cutting-edge technology.
What is composable commerce?
Composable commerce is a revolutionary approach to ecommerce that involves dismantling conventional monolithic ecommerce platforms into distinct, independent modules that can be personalised, substituted, and integrated to create a tailored shopping experience for customers.
This strategy enables retailers to achieve unprecedented levels of flexibility and agility in their operations by allowing them to choose specific modules, such as PIM or CMS, to work with their existing ecommerce platforms instead of having to migrate to an entirely new system.
Ultimately, this empowers brands to deliver a more customised and engaging shopping experience, enhancing customer satisfaction and loyalty.

While some providers use temporary expedient techniques, it's essential for brands to decide the right battle to fight and harness technology for constant innovation.is geared up to offer a solution to all such challenges to Indian retailers.
