Case Study: Living Direct Saves Time and Money Through Vendor Network
As a result of working with a LINK vendor, Living Direct had ratings and reviews live on its site in just over six weeks of developer time, roughly a month faster than it normally would have taken. This resulted in tremendous cost savings for the retailer.
One Size Fits All
Each e-commerce platform, technology vendor and business process for how to reach the other to unite the technologies is always a little bit different. When dealing with so many permutations, every integration and deployment is a custom project — which is a lot of time and money.
In fact, for every dollar spent on enterprise licensing, another seven dollars goes to infrastructure and integration, notes Jamus Driscoll, vice president of marketing at Demandware.
Since Demandware offers an on-demand platform and all of its customers use the same version of the platform, the integration points are constant. By working with other on-demand technology providers whose integration points are also constant, LINK can offer repeatable product live integrations between two product sets that survive the test of time.
"Having the full list of documentation, Living Direct isn't having to shepherd the vendor through the process," says Leakey. "Demandware has already communicated, they already understand each other's platform."
