Criteria Magento MartJack Enterprise
Multichannel Retailing capabilities Magento is designed for pure play online commerce companies. It doesn’t have the desired workflows and features for retailers and brands. MartJack is built for offline retailers and hence Multichannel Retailing is in the DNA of MartJack. Our core focus is helping your customers enjoy a seamless Multichannel commerce experience across Web, Social, Mobile and In-store. The features and workflows are centred on retailers like you. For E.g.: MartJack has Buy Online, Pickup in store feature.
Control for business and technology users Due to its nature of open source, Magneto constrains the control for business and technical users.For Example: If an offer is planned, you can simply implement the offer using MartJack platform in 2 simple steps. If the same need to be done with Magento, it will require additional cost and might require development effort. MartJack control panel offers unparalleled freedom and control for business and technical users to make the best use of the platform without any support from MartJack.
Technology – Performance, Scalability and Security Magento has scalability and security constraints as the same depends on multiple factors such as Cloud provider, architecture, configurations etc. MartJack provides extreme performance for your online store leveraging cutting edge technology such as content distribution networks (CDN), modern caching systems and cloud (Windows Azure) based scalability with an uptime promise of 99.99%. More importantly our auto scaling capability will enable you to scalable infrastructure within 10 minutes. With ISO27001 certification, MartJack maintains the highest levels of security for your online business.
New Feature development and bug fixes With Magento based offering, there is a huge risk factor because you will be completely dependent on the open source developers / community. Bug fixes might take months together considering the lifecycle of open source development and release. Moreover new features might require additional development / integration efforts. MartJack is conceptualized, built and managed by a team of 75+ technology experts. With 7+ years of global eCommerce experience, we are in the forefront of rolling out new features and bug fixes almost on a weekly basis. Moreover, the time to market for a feature / bug fix is done with great speed. The bug fixes are seamlessly updated as MartJack is a SaaS based platform.
Personalization and custom development Magento has very limited options for personalization as the development is done by open source community. For realizing the limited personalization options, the time to market will very high, stifling your ambitions. With complete control on the development and platform, we can offer deep personalization and custom development. As an outcome you will be able to own a solution rather than a platform. MartJack is confident of delivering a personalized solution in desired timelines.
Total Cost of Ownership Magneto based offering has comprehensive feature set but the same has been split into independent modules and the cost for the entire package is sky high compared to MartJack. Moreover, Magento needs massive manpower and time investments and it lacks agility and control for business stakeholders. Thus making the overall Total Cost of Ownership way higher than MartJack In short, MartJack has immediate and long term business value when we consider a holistic view – no capital investments, less operational investments and efforts, improved time to market and agility, great control to stakeholders when compared to other players in the market.
Extensibility Magneto based offering can be integrated with third party modules such as ERP and POS. However it demands significant efforts, investment and time. Moreover sometimes it poses risk as there might lack of APIs / extensibility for specific cases. With REST APIs, MartJack provides easy and seamless integration with existing business processes and third party systems such as accounting, inventory management, ERP systems and POS software. One can use MartJack APIs to build modules and apps that add features and functionality to the store. Moreover, MartJack team takes up the responsibility of end to end integration, which typically requires fraction of time compared to other platforms.
Hosting Magneto based offering requires an additional hosting vendor to be chosen. As the platform is not tightly coupled, it comes with its own cons – issue with time to market, managing IT infrastructure, coordinating between hosting vendor and Magento developers. MartJack Provides Cloud based hosted solution. You need not worry about the hassles of implementing, upgrading, maintaining, monitoring the infrastructure. MartJack provides world class SLAs such as uptime promise of 99.99%. MartJack is built entirely on the Windows Azure platform and it seamlessly works.
Platform, customization, Training, Consulting and Services Magento based offering comes with a platform, which has limitations and constraints and disconnected pieces of offering. At MartJack, we are in a mission to help retailers and brands and make them successful in digital commerce world.
