Cleverbridge AG
Cleverbridge is well-suited for big companies that have a client base and want to start online. If you have a wide range of products, and you sell worldwide--where different languages and different settings are needed for each region--then Cleverbridge is good solution. If you just want to start selling with limited stock and with couple of product types only in one region, then it's not good idea to begin with Cleverbridge.

Commercetools is generally a very flexible, smart platform for eCommerce business. It's an API enabled, cloud solution that makes integration seamless and quick to deploy. It's also a modern platform that utilizes API query languages like GraphQl. It lacks some functionalities in pricing and geographic variations of product portfolio but the platform is constantly improving and new functionalities are added.

  • Pricing - Commercetools has pricing limitations with respect to customer/SKU combination. If an organization provides lots of custom/contract pricing for customers, Commercetools has difficulty mapping it in. They are working on this to make it more flexible.
  • Geographic variations in product portfolio - Commercetools has central product master that doesn't provide product activation/enabling based on different geographies/elevation/sales office structures. Some creative mapping skills are needed to overcome this limitation.
  • Data mapping limitations - Commercetools lacks in out of the box data mapping limitations to full fledged ERP platforms. Extensive data mapping workshops are necessary to fit the functionalities of an ERP platform from order, to delivery , to warehouse operations and billing.

Usability
Cleverbridge AG
Usability is native, but the system is complex. It has a knowledge base, but who reads that, right? So without explanation, sometimes it's hard to understand how to move and set things. But as soon as you get it, it's not a problem anymore. There are 2 major things, which keeps me from giving a higher score: 1 - Delay in time when making changes; can take up to 2 sec when opening a product, and 10 secs when saving a product update. When you do several updates, it is time consuming; 2 - A lot of settings, which also in the end becomes time consuming.
