How will your brand benefit from migrating to Front-Commerce?

Headless architecture streamlines development and facilitates rapid deployment of new features and integrations without disrupting existing Salesforce Commerce Cloud infrastructure.

Streamlined development processes, reduced maintenance overheads, and the flexibility to choose best-of-breed solutions contribute to overall cost savings.

A hybrid or progressive approach to headless commerce allows you to maintain the functionality of your SFCC back-end while building a modern headless front-end. This extends the value of your existing Salesforce Commerce Cloud investment while unlocking the advantages of headless commerce.

Beyond web and mobile, headless empowers you to create seamless shopping experiences across any touchpoint, including social media and voice assistants.

Why migrate to a headless frontend?

Headless storefronts allow for independent front-end innovation without impacting core Salesforce Commerce Cloud functionality. This translates to faster customization and quicker time-to-market for new features.

Headless frontends are often lighter weight, leading to faster load times and a smoother user experience across devices. This keeps customers engaged.

Decoupling from a monolithic platform allows integration of best-of-breed solutions ensuring compatibility with emerging technologies. Adding new feature is simpler with a headless setup, as the frontend can connect to various backend services and APIs as needed.

Headless frontends enable features like server-side rendering, boosting your organic search ranking and website traffic.
