Core features of SHIFT

Unlocking the value of agility

SHIFT is the first ecommerce platform to successfully combine simplicity of use, speed to market, the affordability of SaaS and the flexibility of bespoke solutions.

  • Forget about rigid templates

    Our component-based system allows anyone in your organisation to design and arrange pages in whichever way works best for your business, and without the need for development support. Choose from our extensive component library or even have bespoke components created for you. Save your unique personalised templates for future replication to speed content creation.

  • Increased conversion rates

    SHIFT ensures all sites are UX optimised, and we provide best-in-breed search and filtering for any facet of your products, meaning customers can find and choose from your products easily. Our consultant-led approach includes quarterly performance reviews from industry experts, who work with you to increase revenue.

  • Enter new markets with ease

    Once you’ve launched with us, you can easily replicate the front-end of your website. Create an identical or customised set of products and quickly launch into foreign territories with our agile deployment engine.

  • Evolve without fear of downtime

    Agility is key to driving improved performance and enhanced customer experiences. Roll out frequent changes with confidence, rather than waiting months for huge releases with hard-to-find bugs. Our deployment engine saves multiple known working states of your site and lets you make changes daily, without fear of extended downtime. If a change to your front-end causes issues, you can roll back to a previous state in under 30 seconds.

  • Speed matters

    It’s been ten years since Amazon discovered a 1% decrease in revenue for every 100ms increase in load time. Speed is at the heart of both UX and conversion, so every aspect of SHIFT is optimised to be as fast as possible across both mobile, tablet and desktop devices. We work with you to ensure any additional third-party software does not affect performance and cost you revenue.

  • Effortless scalability

    Grow without worry – SHIFT has been tested to handle the traffic and demands of businesses trading up to £1 billion per annum online.

  • Hosting made easy

    Don’t worry about multiple dedicated servers, expensive dev-op hires or hosting contracts; with SHIFT, it’s all taken care of. Our auto-scaling hosting environment will even intelligently cope with any unexpected traffic spikes automatically, preventing slowdown or downtime in the busy periods where performance matters most.

  • Partner easily with other best-of-breed suppliers

    Easily integrate with the best third-party companies and applications for your business. Our API-centric architecture allows you to pass and receive data, and work with services such as reporting, fulfilment, marketplaces, marketing platforms and payment gateways. Our headless commerce approach even allows you to swap out entire services within the SHIFT ecosystem (e.g. OMS, PIM).

    Supported by Amazon Web Services (AWS), SHIFT provides industry-leading uptime and reliability, while our platform is PCI Level 1 compliant – meaning you’ll have full confidence in the security of your customers’ data.
