VELOX v1.0.0 “Uetliberg”

Since March last year, we have been busy, developing the next generation Ecommerce Foundation.

Just to be clear, this is in a class of its own: It’s not a product nor a platform. It’s a foundation for futureproof tailormade eCommerce implementations with a focus on B2B. That means you are able to benefit from our more than 20 years of experience and the best practices from the major eCommerce solutions. That way, you can save a lot of development time and license costs while building a custom implementation. All tailored to your specific business requirements.

Now, we are super pumped about the first stable release v1.0.0 release of Velox called after our Zurich home mountain, the “Uetliberg”.

About the Release

The first release features the most important eCommerce functionality at your disposal. The full customer journey from Registration to Checkout is implemented but we didn’t stop there.

Highlights of the release:

  • Fully Responsive Frontend
    We live in a mobile world, therefore we made our Frontend responsive.
  • Pretty Backoffice UI
    Because we think, also B2B shops should look good, even in the Backoffice. Period.
  • API for all major Services
    As a headless solution we provide all of our services with distinct API-access.
  • ZITADEL Integration (IAM - Identity and Access Management)
    We worked with our Partner to integrate their awesome Swiss IAM solution into our solution. Because security matters!
  • Amazon AWS Public Cloud Hosting
    Powerful and highly scalable Infrastructure.
  • Docker Compose Containers
    For fast, easy deployments and happy developers.
  • Digital Order Upload Integration (Unique Feature from Sly)
    This feature can be used by customers to bypass expensive E-Procurement solutions. The customer is able to upload their own ERP-Generated PDF-Order and our system helps you match the fields. Once matched, it remembers the format of your pdf’s. From now on, you can just upload your pdf and the respective articles, quantities and order references are added to your cart auto-magically!

What’s next?

Wait, there’s more! For the coming months, we planned to integrate Stripe Payments, Enterprise Integrations with Apache Camel and a powerful Search integration powered by “elasticsearch”.

Did we get your attention? Don’t hesitate to get in touch with us! We are happy to answer all of your questions, give you a personal demo or just have a nice chat about the possibilities.
