“We consider our company to be a place where people come together to share strong common interests and common values.”

Smart Commerce SE is an innovative provider of eCommerce solutions. First and foremost, we owe our success our employees, who work together with our clients to plan, build and operate tailor made eCommerce solutions for online trading.

The project 

A critical problem of complex eCommerce systems is the estimation and predictability of the duration and costs of the eCommerce system implementation. The reasons are diverse: from unclear demands and creeping changes of the functional range, various customer specific adaptations, to non standardised implementation methodology, missing possibilities of flexible configuration of standardised implementation projects to the missing acceptance of the end user.  

The aim of our project is the research of methods for a fast implementation of eCommerce solutions as well as the development of a procedure model for eCommerce implementations which makes an accurate prediction possible. It shall comprise, among others, parameterizable, pre-configured implementations on the basis of a standard eCommerce software and further software modules including templates and tools.
