Product or service innovations

• Sitecore continues to prioritize a “flexibility over features” platform development philosophy to continue to introduce unlimited options for customization for our customers. As a headless platform we exposed the entire data model and its behavior via a RESTful API. This means that features of OrderCloud aren't aligned to the monolithic UI based commerce platforms of the past. We deploy flexible capabilities that are transformed as features in the user experience. Many areas of the platform demonstrate this philosophy: Rules Engine, Extended Properties. A recent example is Product Collections. While a feature of OrderCloud, Product Collections are deployed in experiences in numbers of ways: Wish Lists, Favorite Products, Product Comparisons to name a few. • As part of Sitecore’s composable DXP strategy, a focus on “better together” development and integrations across Sitecore’s content, experience and commerce portfolio aims to help provide our customers with best-in-class tools to intelligently orchestrate their content so that they can power multi-channel, multi touchpoint buying experiences for brands. • Sitecore continues to expand its partnership with Microsoft. A proud, inaugural member of the Microsoft AI Cloud Partner Program, Sitecore brings the speed, power and agility of Microsoft’s AzureAI to Sitecore OrderCloud, enabling our customers to enhance their ability to deliver personalized ecommerce experiences at scale.

Customer case study

• Global fitness franchisor automates supply chain, launches private B2B marketplace: Stronger order management all-round With their B2B marketplace built on Sitecore® OrderCloud®, the fitness franchisor’s franchisees can log-on and place orders from the suppliers the franchisor assigns to them based on brand and location.

Orders can be placed containing products from multiple suppliers within one transaction. More:

• Jonastone drives 25% increase in revenue with Sitecore: Bringing the showroom experience online Jonastone needed to offer an online experience that matched or even surpassed its in-store experience. Product presentation had to be supported by contextual and helpful content on product pages and in cart. Delivery times had to be specific to coincide with build schedules. Getting new products to market quickly was also a crucial requirement. A multilanguage capability was also necessary to serve the company’s pan-European market. More:
