How customers realized these benefits, in their own wordsCustomization and agility needed to track business:Shift in focus to high-value tasks:“Adobe Commerce gives you a skeleton that you can develop to whatyou need and what you want, and it works with other products . andgives you the agility to track stuff. The Open Source version did not dothat.”“Weʼre saving a lot of time for our people with Adobe Commerce. Wehave reduced our customer service team so that they can now spendmore time on other stuff. We had almost 1.5 people just working onorder entry; weʼre saving that.”Increased traffic due to better site performance:“We could onboard certain customer groups to buy online, which wenever had the ability to before. We can also easily do discount programsand use lots of different features that increased traffic and siteperformance tremendously.”Informed decision making from BI tools:”BI tools help because it allows us to understand how ourbusiness is working and make more informed decisions for us togrow our ecommerce operations.”Decreasing the need of plug-ins to reduce reliance onthird parties:Adoption of mobile-friendly capabilities toachieve higher customer satisfaction:“One of the reasons we ended up going for Adobe Commerce versusMagento Open Source was the list of plug-ins we needed to add to OpenSource compared to the standard and native in Adobe Commerce. Weʼreusing seven to eight plug-ins with Adobe Commerce, and I think we wereat 45 with Open Source.”“We have really adapted to people having iPhones andsmartphones. The customer experience has, above and beyond,changed the most and is something that weʼre pretty proud of.”43 2022 Adobe. All Rights Reserved. Adobe Confidential.
