The Challenge

Loomstate recognized the need for a transformative shift to enhance its digital capabilities. The company's existing homegrown platform presented numerous pain points, including sluggish performance, slow feature implementation, high operational costs and a lack of user-friendly interfaces. These challenges collectively motivated Loomstate to seek a new solution to address its growing needs for speed, flexibility, scalability and cost-efficiency.

The Solution

Loomstate's migration to commercetools Composable Commerce was a test of resilience as the company overcame various challenges. Migrating vast amounts of data, especially sensitive order information, required a strategic approach. Loomstate developed a custom script against commercetools' API, ensuring a seamless data transfer while prioritizing customer privacy and data integrity. The company also tackled the integration of its legacy ERP system by leveraging an asynchronous architecture and harnessing the events-based possibilities offered by commercetools. By capitalizing on the flexibility and extensive SDKs provided, Loomstate successfully implemented necessary integrations and ensured a smooth transition.

Loomstate has also recently added commercetools Frontend paired with Vue Storefront to replace its previous frontend platform. This was done to expedite and standardize the frontend development process, as well as provide an elevated look and feel to its websites. In fact, Loomstate is now utilizing commercetools Frontend to rebuild the Chipotle (one of its biggest clients) B2B customer portal.

We would advise to not only replace one tool for a newer one, but use the chance to re-think your architecture, flow of information and general architecture. There's no magic formula, but what works is a combination of the right team in place, right tools and clear architecture/requirements.
