Becoming your own (niche) marketplace can be part of your multichannel growth strategy. The main prediction in e-commerce is, that only one or a few dominant (niche) marketplaces per industry or product segment will survive. It is no longer a question if they will come, but rather who will claim these positions and when. This means that a number of major players will swallow up the competition. NextChapter eCommerce focuses on marketplace solution software that helps you become your own (niche) marketplace.
When you choose to develop into a marketplace, you can decide between a broad or niche offering in products. Both options can be perfectly realized with the NextChapter platform. You develop your webshop into a multivendor sales platform. If you do that with a niche offering, you can even claim authority and specialization.
A logical growth path is that your current webshop becomes a closed marketplace and from there evolves into an open marketplace. On a closed marketplace you choose the partners, product range, delivery times, etc. And with an open marketplace your suppliers can register themselves directly, at any time.
To run a marketplace successfully, you need a solid and reliable e-commerce platform. And that starts with PIM. You want to connect many and various vendors to your marketplace, each with a different backend system. In NextChapter PIM we easily and clearly bring all different article data together. In our PIM the article data is validated, enriched and then distributed with only correct content. So that you can be sure that every product displays the correct data. In the NextChapter SaaS platform, all generic technology and functionalities are centrally built, maintained and innovated. At the front (frontend) and at the back (integrations), NextChapter eCommerce can deliver any custom case. Our Data Converter ensures a flawless link with external systems. We can also add specific custom features. We combine the power of SaaS with the flexibility of customization for your marketplace. Everything from one dashboard.
