INTERAKTING BUILDS A GATEWAY BETWEEN TWO WEB LEADERS: eZ PUBLISH AND MAGENTO
Interakting, a recognized player on the e-commerce and content management markets, has created the first eZ Publish/Magento(r) connector, validated by the eZ Systems company, creator and vendor of the eZ Publish Web Open Source content management platform.
"eZ Way 2 Magento" is a major eZ Publish solution development thanks to which the Magento(r) solution can be managed in an entirely transparent manner, while its e-commerce strengths are combined with eZ Publish's editorial and online store publication features.
The "eZ Way 2 Magento" connector is available on eZ Systems' eZ Market, which provides the market with certified plug-ins to enhance eZ Publish's platform features.
"Today, all brand sites are reviewing their strategy in order to optimize their e-commerce setup. The access to end customers has become essential to building new sales and marketing strategies. "Retailtainment" is still for most an important differentiating factor, so using a powerful content management tool has become a must," highlights Alain Werdenschlag, Interakting agency Director.
In view of the market's failure to fully meet this dual challenge, Interakting decided to combine eZ Publish Enterprise with Magento(r). The connector combines a powerful content management engine with a very versatile e-commerce engine. The eZ Publish/Magento(r) connector aims at integrating all the necessary features for Magento(r)'s e-commerce to work in eZ Publish. Websites managed with eZ Publish will have e-commerce tools in their CMS to help drive sales and retailtainment. User navigation is transparent and smooth: browsing within eZ Publish without changing of domain, accessing to both systems is fully simultaneous and two-way. The products catalogue, the product data sheets, the shopping cart, the integration of various payment methods such as Paypal and all other e-commerce platform features are directly accessible in eZ Publish.
Christof Zahneissen, eZ Publish Product Manager states: "Integrating content management and shopping creates a unique user experience which is absolutely essential to building customer loyalty and providing successful e-commerce offerings. Convergent physical, digital and mobile multi-channels are at the heart of customer experience development. Interaction with targets is now a constant concern. And this is what eZ Publish is all about."
"Technically speaking, we have chosen a model that allows eZ Publish to manage, in an independent way, Magento output within its templates; this guarantees strong upward compatibility with any future Magento developments," says Raphael Carles, Interakting agency Technical Director.
