Overall Satisfaction with WebSphere Commerce

At my organization, we provide websphere commerce implementation to our clients. Websphere Commerce helps in implementing e-commerce solutions for any organization. It greatly helps in providing omni channel experience for the customers thereby providing the advantages like, one view of inventory, buy online pick up in store, single view of orders placed across all channels etc.
  • Websphere commerce provides efficient contract based pricing. Contract based pricing greatly helps in handling prices for different business
  • Catalog filtering is one other strength of websphere commerce, as it helps to filter the show only those products that the customer is entitled to
  • Extended site model is one other strength of WCS as it greatly helps in having multiple e-commerce sites for different demographics, for branding etc
  • It still uses EJBs, need to move to latest technologies for persistance
  • Promotion module customizations needs to more easy
  • Grouping of products based on the shipping methods/shipping dates etc functionality needs to be added
  • E-commerce implementation using Websphere commerce greatly helped in increasing online sales
  • It greatly helps in building the brand value
  • Websphere commerce license cost is a bit high compared to other e-commerce tools
Websphere commere efficient e-site model, contract based pricing, and efficient catalog filtering funtionality were the primary reasons to go for websphere commerce. It has good B2B functionalities available out of the box in WCS when compared to other e-commerce solutions where we need to do considerable of customization to implement these functionalities
Websphere commerce is well suited if multiple sites are required based on geography, for branding, large customers. It is well suited for B2B model to handle different pricing and catalog filters for each business. It is not well suited if there are multiple external systems that drives the pricing an d promotions. WCS should be the master for pricing and promotion
