If you want to get serious about e-commerce, there’s no way around switching to completely digitalized processes. But not every company has the structure, the manpower and/or the financial resources to rely on powerful systems with a development framework. And sometimes it simply has to happen quickly. SAP Upscale Commerce is the ideal solution for safely setting up an online platform as a first step.
Nothing works without e-commerce
Companies, including those in B2B, that really want to get to know their customers today cannot get around the topic of e-commerce. This is the only way to have direct customer contact and the possibility to permanently assess one’s end consumers. In addition, the digital environment opens up the possibility for companies to offer their entire portfolio under their control. In short, e-commerce is pure digitalization.
What role does SAP Upscale Commerce play in this context? The focus of this solution is on simple B2C scenarios. Thanks to a mobile-first approach and the microservice and API approach, it also offers a state-of-the-art architecture. That’s why, at valantic, we recommend SAP Upscale Commerce primarily to small and medium-sized companies that want to go live quickly.

SAP Upscale Commerce, on the other hand, is not suitable for the usually more complex B2B scenarios or when you need to establish a high-performance, yet flexible system. In that case, we recommend you go with the SAP Commerce Cloud. This solution enables a consistent brand presence and user experience across all touchpoints.
The goal: a customized e-commerce system
