There’s a great article at BlueAcorn about the importance of E-commerce Freedom as it relates to platform limitations. The article discusses this in terms of choosing a platform for a vendor based on their needs which will probably change over time:
When you choose an all in one provider, if any one one of those key areas becomes a problem, you have no choice but to completely transition onto an entirely new platform and start from scratch, or, you could always just grin and bear it. But is that what’s best for your business, or for theirs?
The article responds to this dilemma by discussing the concept of E-commerce Freedom and then turning that into a justified recommendation of Magento.
It’s a little thing I like to call eCommerce freedom – the freedom to choose. Whether you’re a mom and pop shop, or an enterprise multi-channel retailer, a solution such as Magento Commerce gives you that freedom, you can modify the software, take it with you wherever you go, and have whoever you want work on it. At the end of the day however, it is always yours, and that is something that will last as long as you’d like it to.
It’s a great read. Check it out!
