BERLIN | APRIL 2021 – Spryker Systems GmbH has announced a new Vue Storefront integration with the Spryker Cloud Commerce OS. This PWA front-end is built on top of Spryker Glue API in close collaboration between the Spryker and Vue Storefront teams. This integration aligns with Spryker’s commitment towards a composable commerce architecture which will enable customers to have more flexibility, control, and customization in their projects, while continuously leveraging the core release with minimal upgrade efforts.
The purchasing behavior of customers continues to diversify, forcing organizations to face the challenge of expanding their shops to meet a wider range of needs across a growing number of front-end touchpoints. Engineering teams from Spryker and Vue Storefront worked together to find a solution that allows for a ready-to-go integration built to serve the CX requirements of Spryker customers.
This particular integration consists of a typical B2C flow, including Homepage, Catalog Search Page, Product Detail Page, Cart, Checkout, and Customer Profile. This will help new projects starting with the boilerplate build business-specific functionalities immediately. With support from the NuxtJs framework, it is easier to configure new projects while also available for existing and heavily customized projects through NPM Package Manager. As a result, this will help create a shorter time to market with a potential higher ROI.
“We’re proud that the close collaboration with Vue Storefront led to this newly released PWA integration that allows Spryker customers to maximize flexibility and speed. This integration will enable customers to serve the future of frontends as a key piece of Composable Enterprise capabilities,” said Thordur Gunnthorsson, Director of Technology Partnerships at Spryker.
Patrick Friday, CEO at Vue Storefront: “Headless Commerce platform joint with the Bodiless Fronted gives complete control over the user experience and exploits every touchpoint’s full potential. It also allows merchants to experiment, scale their business, and tailor it to the target audience’s needs. Spryker, as one of the great representatives of a new wave of Headless Commerce, had to join our constantly extending family. We could not miss the opportunity to make e-commerce better together!”
The integration is accessible through the boilerplate project as well as the integration documentation and may be acquired as an independent package.
