Customer case study

Many of the larger ecommerce providers either implement themselves and build the frameworks for you using your business logic, or they ask you to work with authorized third-party development teams. In our case, we have a pretty sophisticated engineering team, and also want to maintain a lean budget, so we prefer doing things ourselves. Working with the technology leads at BigCommerce, we were able to get a comprehensive architectural and systems integration document focused on APIs and how we could achieve the functionality we have today. This allowed our engineering team to ramp up quickly; in fact, we went live with BigCommerce in six weeks, which was very quick and seamless.

BigCommerce is a reliable platform; since launching, we haven’t had to do much maintenance, which frees up time to make improvements to our online store.

The onboarding process and even the pre-sales process were pretty thorough in investigating our requirements and identifying actual solutions to them. Across the spectrum, representatives from the other platforms we spoke to didn't invest nearly as much time into coming up with a framework or solution that would work for our business, but instead tried to fit our business into their framework. Truly, the flexibility that BigCommerce has offered in terms of guidance, support and solutioning has been immense.
