    Headless Commerce Platform Definition

    In a headless commerce platform, the front-end (user interface) is separated from the back-end (admin area). This means that all components that you can see and interact with are decoupled from the backend system - i.e. the infrastructure, data and logic of the platform. Developers can thus work independently on both layers without interfering with each other.

    At the heart of this headless commerce architecture are so-called headless commerce APIs (Application Programming Interfaces). These are interfaces via which the frontend and backend can communicate and interact with each other, enabling a flexible and modular design of the platform.



    Headless Commerce Platform: Benefits

    A headless architecture allows front-end developers to make the user experience flexible, uncomplicated and cost-efficient - without impacting the entire commerce platform. You can develop small, independent e-commerce applications, also known as microservices, in an agile manner and publish product updates in accelerated release cycles. At the same time, the back-end can be easily changed and optimized - without unwanted side effects on the entire system. To put it simply: retailers, brands and manufacturers are given the opportunity to design their headless commerce platform individually according to their requirements.


    Seamless Integration into your Tech Stack

    When integrating ERP systems with online stores, many companies come up against technical limits in terms of flexibility and data availability. Adapting central processes to the main ERP can be time-consuming and harm efficiency. To ensure seamless processes, a powerful and scalable headless commerce platform is essential.

    • A headless architecture enables fast, step-by-step implementation with existing systems
    • The user experience is not affected during the changeover
    • Thanks to headless APIs, Actindo Core1 is compatible with any third-party and partner technology
    • Easy integration of best-of-breed functions such as chatbots, DAM, PIM or business intelligence
    • You can get started immediately - in weeks, not years


      Open up New Sales Channels

      The majority of consumers find it more convenient to buy products online. Retailers, manufacturers and brands that do not adapt to digital commerce risk huge losses in market share.

      • Actindo Core1's omnichannel module connects directly to all sales channels and webshops and manages them centrally
      • Expand your competitive advantage and open up new sales channels to extend your market reach and customer base
