RETAIL

What makes us different

Set up a solid digital infrastructure for your organization that will serve your customers best in the current market

With Daalder for retail we focus on three important areas:

  • Service
  • Total cost of ownership (TCO)
  • Flexibility

Service

“A change at Microsoft where we no longer talk about the lagging indicators of success — … revenue, profit. What are the leading indicators of success? Customer love. … So getting an entire organization to fall in love with these leading indicators of success and staying true to them is perhaps the biggest challenge, but it’s also what I know to be the biggest driver of our success.”

Satya Nadella(Microsoft CEO) - on his hardest expected challenges

Our customers are at the forefront of our attention and their goals are always aligned together with ours. Service is one of our strongest competitive advantages, as it is an area we work on everyday. For many businesses a customer purchasing their product is the end goal. For us, it is only the beginning. The beginning of a lasting relationship, where we focus on how we can improve the experience of our customers with our product, move faster, and make sure they get all the help they need.

Total cost of ownership

We acknowledge that for many retail owners, whichever Key Performance Indicator (KPI) they set for measurement, they will have to take into account the costs accompanying the move to ecommerce. In that regard, we can affirm our advantage in terms of TCO through the following comparison with the competition in the market.

Flexibility

In the context of ecommerce, flexibility implies a couple of aspects to consider, among which are the following:

  • Supplier independence

    Daalder is based on Laravel, which means you can pretty much go to any PHP development firm.

  • Adding new functionality

    This aspect answers the question - can I respond fast to opportunity with new functionality? In that regard, established platforms might have a slight edge in third-party support, due to the simple fact that they were present longer in the market
    If such functionality does not exist or a custom solution is needed however, Daalder would have an advantage, due to the reliance on Laravel foundation which enables creating new integrations fast.

  • Technology

    Daalder is a 'headless' solution, which means that it's not tied to a particular frontend or backend. Interested in a Wordpress or Vue.JS based frontend implementations. Do you want to create a React frontend? or have a Java based PIM system. You want to integrate with your existing accounting software or use one of our existing integrations for SAP or Business Central 365. No problem, just feed our API. Headless is all about freedom of choice and having full control.
