As online retail operations grow, businesses requirements may change with technology, new operational requirements and compliance. To meet these requirements many clients choose to re-platform and move their business critical data.


Reasons to Re-Platforming


Webstores and Multi-Channel systems play a pivotal role in listing and selling products online, however many have distinct advantages and disadvantages which are directly related to the Retailers requirements. These become more apparent depending the volume of products handled and the complexity of the online operation.

Typical reasons why Retailers may require re-platforming to another webstore or multi-retail system could be related to some of the following points.

 SOFTWARE INSTABILITY (HIGH INSTANCES OF CRASHES)
 BADLY DESIGNED SOFTWARE WITH POOR WORKFLOW
 HIGH COMMISSION RATES
 PROCESSING LIMITATIONS (SKU LEVELS)
 LIMITED FUNCTIONALITY FOR MULTI-VARIATIONS
 HARD TO USE WITH A STEEP LEARNING CURVE
 POOR PAYMENT PROCESSING & ACCOUNTING INTEGRATION

Data Migrations for Re-Platforming

Moving between systems, webstores or platforms requires a change firstly to the data structure as the system, webstore or platform has its own unique file structure and secondly to data elements (Internal ID's, Meta Data, Categories,etc). 

We routinely work with Retailers, porting their data and making it 'fit for purpose' with their chosen platform or system. For successful volume data migrations of business critical data, we focus on aspects such as


   VOLUME PROCESSING REQUIREMENTS    REQUIREMENTS FOR DATA ENHANCEMENT
   KEY POINTS OF FAILURE    AREAS REQUIRING SPECIALIST ATTENTION
   DATA DEFICIENCIES    DATA CLASSIFICATION & CHANGES TO META-DATA
