commercetools makes the power and scale of enterprise-grade commerce accessible to mid-market brands, enabling them to easily develop modern customer experiences.

MUNICH (Germany), March 28, 2022 – commercetools, the leader in digital commerce and inventor of headless commerce, today announced a new, powerful addition to its product portfolio, commercetools for Growth, which makes it easy for business-to-consumer (B2C) and direct-to-consumer (D2C) brands and retailers to create modern customer experiences without full developer teams. commercetools for Growth, the perfect solution for mid-market, technology-focused brands, allows businesses to create modern shopping experiences across multiple channels by providing a set of pre-composed MACH (Microservices, API, Cloud-Native, and Headless)-based components.

Built upon MACH principles and derived from commercetools’ acquisition of the composable frontend platform Frontastic (now commercetools Frontend), commercetools for Growth provides a “starter kit” for businesses by incorporating best-in-class backend commerce with composable frontend, which enables the best and fastest commerce, personalization, and search experiences for customers. commercetools for Growth gives growth-minded brands that do not have large IT organizations the ability and flexibility to easily compose engaging customer experiences across multiple channels and markets. This capability, which was once only accessible to the most complex, well-resourced organizations, is now available to more businesses than ever before with the power of commercetools for Growth. As opposed to a “website-in-a-box” offering, commercetools for Growth enables continuous innovation as businesses scale to meet the evolving needs of their customers.

After seeing the great impact commercetools has had on enterprise businesses, and the profound growth we’ve experienced over the past year, we’re excited to introduce commercetools for Growth to the market and bring the power of MACH to mid-market brands. commercetools for Growth provides the foundation that brands can grow into, not out of, as they scale to reach new channels and markets and provide customers with unparalleled brand experiences.
