Strongly reduced response time
Intershop introduces a completely new storefront, the Intershop Progressive Web
Application (PWA). This super light front ensures a much faster users
experience and improved the performance in Google (SEO) strongly. The PWA is the ideal
combination of advantages of a traditional mobile web page and a native mobile app.
As with a regular website, the PWA is accessible via a URL. However, the page does not have to
framework only to be loaded once. The Intershop PWA has many functions that you can
only recently with native apps. This way only the necessary data is transferred,
instead of full pages, which improves the response time unprecedented. Becoming data
in the background, it is automatically loaded, stored and synchronized.
This means that this content can be used easily and super-fast. Even in situations like the
site is offline or if there is a bad connection or bandwidth is too limited.

Improve brand experience
Another innovation is the technical separation between the front-end and the Commerce
Management, also called "headless commerce". This offers more flexibility
users and creative digital agencies, to develop very unique storefronts that the
further enhance brand experience.

Webshops live faster

webshop can be brought live in an unprecedented short time. Intershop will do this
continuous, in a cycle of 4 weeks, additional features remain available.

Re-platforms are a thing of the past
Many web shops are faced with the problem of being driven by the rapid growth against the borders
of the existing shop solutions, in terms of performance, management or functionality.
Intershop has solved this challenge in its new release. Adjustments can
easily added outside the core via super fast and stable APIs and micro
services. This makes Intershop Commerce Suite the most scalable solution

Integration with Microsoft Dynamics 365
Intershop now also fulfills a much-heard wish, the integration of the Intershop
Commerce Suite with Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations. With this
flexible connectors based on microservices, the boundary between ERPs disappears
Commerce applications and room for growth and performance improvement. The
Microservice architecture guarantees faster and risk-free integration and offers more
flexibility. Orders, products, prices and stock data are easy and fast
synchronized between both systems. The double input of data and
inconsistent stocks are a thing of the past.

the Oracle database. Intershop sees SQL Server as a cost-effective database
