3dcart

3dcart is well suited to getting a site up and running quickly with shopping cart capabilities. The merchant account set up was easy and there are inventory and shipping capabilities, as well. It is a very powerful tool for a small business without full time IT support on staff. While I did not have many products, it seemed like a merchant with a large inventory would have to spend a great deal of time on setting up the store

SAP Hybris

Hybris is straightforward to implement and customize for teams well versed in the Java Stack. The learning curve for technical staff with no exposure to Java is quite steep. Official training courses targeted at front end implementation would be tremendously beneficial in jump-starting productivity for those who fall into this category.

Pros

  • Strong shopping cart capabilities, with all types of promotions and discounting capabilities. Easy to set up the promotion and implement the campaign.
  • Integration with our email provider to be able to segment buyers based on timing of purchase.
  • Easy to use blog, was able to set up each post simply and create SEO/Meta tags associated with each post.
  • Products set up was easy and there are options for categories and classes to make setting up the store easy.
  • Easy to use for someone with no programming skills.
  • Solid architecture upon the Java Spring framework
  • Clear, efficient separation of presentation and data layers
  • Easy to setup and maintain local development environment
  • UI layer easy to extend, or re-tool to fold in preferred frameworks and utilities.

Cons

  • Using images on the site and in the blog was a cumbersome process. The upload was easy enough, but finding and using the image after upload was terrible. The navigation of the images was difficult and there were no sort functions.
  • For a simple site without the need for a log in admin or shipping, these functions and capabilities were not easily hidden or removed. You needed to have a programmer go into the code to remove them. For a tool like 3dcart, it seemed to be something they could have taken care of with check boxes in the settings.
  • While expected, the templates available were very basic and simple. To enhance the look of your site, you will need a programmer or pay for the premium templates.
  • Some modules were written a long time ago and it's very hard to customise them (WCMS, CS, old promo engine).

Not applicable - as a franchisee, the franchiser took over the web site and shopping cart capabilities, so I no longer need the tool. But I would recommend it.

I truly enjoy leading Hybris development projects and participating in new feature development for the platform. I see huge potential for growth and hope to be instrumental in bringing Hybris to the bleeding edge of presentation layer technology.

Figuring out the CMS tools took some time. Supporting documentation is sparse.I also found the tools to be slow at times, making simple template edits an arduous process.

I give this an 8 instead of a 10 because in hindsight, while I am extremely happy with the platform and the things I've learned through my exposure to it, I also see so many areas for improvement in the outcome of my efforts. My advice to front end developers working with Hybris and/or the Java stack for the first time, is to not be intimidated by it. Question everything. Trust your intuition. Do not be afraid to refactor or completely replace something that appears integral to the platform if you see a clear benefit to doing so. It's much less far reaching than you think and the core system will not come crumbling to its knees if you make broad sweeping alterations. In fact, the energy you will expend to retool your site with a new framework will grow in tandem with the amount of time you spend hesitating, and at some point may become critical enough to force your hand while simultaneously becoming risky enough to destabilize your entire project delivery. If you don't like JQuery UI, punt it. If you don't care for the Blueprint CSS framework, burn it down. Making the strategic decision to adopt the toolset that best fits your organization from the very beginning will pay off in spades.

Alternatives Considered

Selected 3DCart based on price point and ease of getting started. Gave a two week free trial to make sure I could get it set up. Seemed easier than other options and had room to grow if I need more capabilities. It also integrated with QuckBooks, FaceBook and Auth.net which were all part of the package right from the start.
Hybris is a strong contender in the eCommerce platform race. It's closest competitor is probably ATG whereas Endeca, from the standpoint of our projects, is more of a supplementary tool to assist it. I and others have found hybris' strengths in that it's a light weight and very modular system which can rely on other tools where it's own abilities may fall short. ATG tries to do everything and be an all encompassing framework but in reality it is very hard to do all things at once and be great at all of them. Our philosophy was to use hybris' modularity and take what it does extremely well and leverage it along with supplementing tools such as Endeca to provide a solution that excels across the board. Being able to customize a solution to a business need is an important part delivering the right solution. The flexibility of hybris is the one thing that stood out to me and was most likely the reason for it's use in our project.

Return on Investment

  • Enhanced customer service with ticket system.
  • Was able to quickly set up shop and get started on the web.
  • With one solid Hybris implementation live, and another on it's heels in Q3, we've built significant in-house expertise in the platform. As we win more Hybris business, our ability to rapidly implement performant and unique e-commerce solutions for our clients can only improve.
