Alokai x Vaimo: The fastest way to build a composable storefront

The composable approach is a great choice for many modern businesses that leverage the latest trends and tech to make their brand stand out from competitors.

If you currently use a traditional ecommerce platform for your online store, the easiest way to reap composable benefits is to go headless first.

  • Going headless first means you can still use your ecommerce platform. You can connect Alokai’s frontend platform to any traditional ecommerce platform, including Adobe Commerce, SAP, Oracle, and HCL.
  • By changing the frontend only, you’ll be in a great place for a complete re-platform if you decide to go that route in the future.
  • With the right partners, you can easily go headless or take small steps towards a completely composable approach for your business.

Case study highlight: Rapala

Rapala, one of the world’s largest supplier of fishing gear and supplies, wanted to modernize their ecommerce platform into a dynamic, sales-oriented channel. They envisioned a website as the premier destination for customers seeking to purchase fishing gear and supplies.

Vaimo used headless architecture to build Rapala a modern commerce solution, using Adobe Commerce Cloud as the ecommerce engine, and Alokai as the frontend. This presentation layer, developed as a Progressive Web App (PWA), delivers an immersive, app-like experience for mobile users browsing the Rapala website.
