Launch into commerce

Going composable can seem like a daunting adventure. Much like assembling a piece of Ikea furniture without the user manual, the task seems insurmountable.

The Vaimo LaunchPad is your user manual, guide, and map. We spent thousands of hours selecting, testing, and ensuring that all the pieces work together seamlessly—so you don’t have to.

This doesn’t mean you can’t change pieces of the puzzle—but it gives you a solid starting point and a strong platform for your MACH-based composable strategy.

What is the Vaimo LaunchPad?

Vaimo LaunchPad is our composable architecture accelerator product that makes it easier to onboard into a commercetools-driven composable architecture. With a proven blueprint, integrations, data, and technology architecture, we have created a structured baseline for all ecommerce needs.

How does the Vaimo LaunchPad work?

The Vaimo LaunchPad offers a strong platform for your MACH-based composable strategy. The Vaimo LaunchPad includes the following four areas:

  • A composable architecture baseline with best-of-breed technology
  • Services and integrations to make data flow between systems
  • A DevOps foundation to enable technical teams to onboard faster
  • Accelerators and technical best practices to speed up implementation

Who is a great fit for Vaimo LaunchPad?

The Vaimo LaunchPad is a fast-track towards a composable ecommerce solution. While composable architecture is a fantastic method of arranging your technology stack, it’s not the only option. For smaller companies with a straight-forward business model, diving into a composable solution is a major investment. As a general rule, the Vaimo LaunchPad fits medium to large organizations with more complex business models.

The Vaimo LaunchPad is the right choice for you in the following scenarios:

  • A company with a marketplace operation
  • A manufacturer that produces complex equipment
  • A large, internationally operating brand
  • A company within the telecommunications, finance, or automotive industry
  • A company who is an advanced multi-channel seller
  • A company that offers IoT-based services

The Vaimo LaunchPad is a great choice for large companies that can’t allow their system architecture to slow down innovation. The Vaimo LaunchPad suits organizations with ambitious omnichannel goals and a vision of connecting all sales channels, or companies that want to focus on creating competitive digital services.
