The Challenge

The existing legacy architecture based on Magento and individual programming wasn’t able to withstand the strong growth of the company. They needed a new commerce platform that could administer all transactions on flaconi.de, scale without limitations, and offer a first-class mobile user experience.

The Solution

With commercetools, the flaconi platform now has numerous ready-to-use microservices that can be individually combined and expanded, while still easily integrating with existing components via API interfaces. Products and services can be implemented with just a few clicks, accelerating their time-to-market.

What convinced us at commercetools is the fast time-to-market for new features and products that the platform makes possible, the flexible backend, and the scalability. Our developers like to work with it, and its performance and well-developed APIs impress them.
