Commerce at MACH® Speeds 

Take your digital commerce platform on the autobahn and unleash the possibilities. MACH technology is an open, modular and scalable approach built for speed and flexibility.

Commerce Without Limits with MACH Architecture

MACH architecture is like the superhero of e-commerce platforms, minus the cape and tights. MACH (Microservices, API-first, Cloud-native, and Headless) isn’t just a fancy acronym; it’s a revolutionary approach that supercharges your online store.

  1. Microservices

    Microservices are small, self-contained applications, tackling a specific task like a champ. Unlike those bulky, do-it-all monolithic systems. Microservices allow you to mix, match, and replace components without downtime.

  2. API-First

    API-First means designing your systems to communicate seamlessly through APIs (Application Programming Interfaces) from the beginning. This approach ensures that everything – from your inventory system to your customer service chatbot – talks the same language, making it easier to integrate new features or platforms.

  3. Cloud-Native

    This approach leverages the power of cloud computing, ensuring that your platform is always on, always current, and scales like magic. It’s like having a store that can magically grow extra aisles during a sale and shrink back down when things are quiet, without you lifting a finger. Plus, it’s more secure and resilient – like having an invisible shield around your store, protecting it from the villains of the internet world.

  4. Headless

    Headless commerce separates the front end from the back end, communicating using APIs. This means you can change the look, feel, and user experience of your online store as easily as a chameleon changes colors, without messing with the business end of things. It’s like giving your store a makeover without having to shut down for renovations.

The answer to many common business inefficiencies

Not all brands need MACH, or may not be ready for it. By assessing current technology deployment and answering a few questions, we help our clients determine if MACH is a good fit, for example:

  1. /01 IT teams make changes to content that should be the responsibility of others
  2. /02 Clients want to add critical features such as financing or personalization, but are concerned about downtime.
  3. /03 Brands aspire to optimize TCO to reduce operating and maintenance costs.
  4. /04 Teams find it slow to implement new features, or respond to market conditions due to complex processes, policies or poorly documented functionality.
  5. /05 Clients lack full visibility of performance data from their platforms, hampering decision making.

If these challenges feel familiar, it’s worth exploring MACH solutions with us. Our business analysts can help conduct a needs analysis and tech stack audit to help make an informed decision.
