Slatwall is not a 'Shopping Cart', it is a commerce platform capable of managing many shopping carts. We believe that your commerce platform shouldn't dictate how your organization's website or websites look or act. By removing the strict front-end layout requirements of many other systems, we're able to structure your web presence in the most effective way to meet your company's needs.
Meeting a variety of needs from different business units in your organization often means standing up websites that speak to different audiences about different products and services. If your commerce platform can't centralize and manage your business across these various sites, then you'll find yourself with operational inefficiencies that can slow progress to a halt. Slatwall was designed from the ground up to support as many sites, on as many platforms, as your business requires.
There are literally hundreds of Content Management Systems to solve any type of web challenge. We believe that having the flexibility to select whatever CMS will best meet your business needs is crucial. Your commerce platform shouldn't be dictating how your CMS works, or what CMS you need to use. Slatwall can plug right in with any of the popular platforms like Wordpress, Drupal or DotNetNuke, as well as work with a custom CMS that might have been built in-house. This becomes a game changer when you have operations spanning a multitude of these platforms and would like to bring a unified shopping experience to them all.
Slatwall is setup to sync content records from your Content Management System(s) so that you can define where you want your products to display. This allows you to restrict access to certain content until a user has paid or subscribed to gain access. Also, by syncing the categorization of your content, you can quickly spin up new product offerings and create correlations between your products and your content.
We don't want to tell you how to run your business, or what your customers are looking for... you know that better than we ever could. Whatever you want your Product Listing, Product Details, Shopping Cart or Checkout to look and function like is up to you. We provide the tools and the framework, you dictate the look and behavior.
For today's global enterprises multi-language support is crucial. With Slatwall you can create multiple websites in different languages, or a single site that gets translated into multiple languages, all while managing your operations in one centralized place. In addition, the entire administrator can be set up and used in the language of your users, even if that means different employees using the same administrative tools in different languages.
