Jena, the 22nd of May 2018
Constant technical developments and ever-changing customer demands require fast response times and maximum flexibility from brands, retailers, and manufacturers. An API-first approach and advanced microservice architecture in the cloud make it easy for companies to respond quickly to new trends in online commerce. These are the exact characteristics of the e-commerce solution from commercetools. dotSource has been the official business partner of the international software provider since 2016. Since then, the partnership has been characterised by the continuous exchange and transfer of knowledge. In order to help companies set up and develop their digital strategy based on state-of-the-art technologies with in-depth know-how, six dotSource employees were the first in the world to be certified as "commercetools Certified Solution Developers" in April.
»Our certification program gives commercetools professionals the opportunity to validate their knowledge and skills by acquiring one of our certificates for different roles. To receive a commercetools certification, a candidate has to pass a QCM exam, which takes place online. We are pleased that dotSource was the first partner to use this opportunity, as it distinguishes a high level of technical excellence,« said Dirk Weckerlei, Head of Partner Management at commercetools.
One of the strengths of commercetools is the all-in-one cloud like being able to handle a wide range of products and diverse product categories. The three-weekly updates ensure that the technological systems always stay up to date. For Christian Grötsch, founder and Managing Director of dotSource GmbH, however, the most outstanding feature is the process acceleration and the associated short time-to-market for new features:
»This solution from commercetools offers companies the opportunity to react to new developments in the e-commerce market at very short notice. These are precisely the goals of our customers, some of whom already have a solid standing in e-commerce. To stay ahead of the market and provide an excellent online shopping experience, they need to deliver innovative features. We are proud to be the first to demonstrate their in-depth knowledge of this sustainable solution and look forward to sharing this knowledge with our clients.«
