ZNODE MULTIFRONT® 9.0 TO LAUNCH AT IRCE 2017

Leading eCommerce Developer Unveils World’s Most Powerful, Scalable & Flexible eCommerce Platform

Leading eCommerce platform Znode®  announced its highly anticipated release of Znode Multifront® 9.0 will launch at the 2017 Internet Retailer Conference & Exhibition (IRCE), June 6-9th. The release of Znode Multifront 9.0 marks a major milestone for Znode as it continues to lead eCommerce platform innovation for B2B and B2C brands worldwide.

The launch of Znode Multifront 9.0 comes at a time when the marketplace is rapidly changing to meet growing demand for buying convenience, personalization and flexibility. “Commerce is constantly evolving as brands look to keep pace with increasing customer expectations, but many traditional eCommerce platforms haven’t innovated for years,” states Znode CTO Yash Shah. “We developed a true next generation eCommerce platform to position brands of any size in any industry to deliver a best-in-class, fully-customized eCommerce brand experience.”

The result is Znode Multifront 9.0 – an innovative eCommerce platform that is powerful, scalable and flexible for marketers and developers alike. The most notable aspect of Znode’s latest product release lies within the development itself. “True eCommerce platform innovation begins with software development. It’s why Znode has a ‘development-first’ culture,” explains Shah. “Our extensive, experienced development team invested over 100,000 development hours re-imagining and building Znode Multifront 9.0.”

While many traditional eCommerce platforms were designed to support single-store eCommerce, Znode Multifront was designed to support the wide range of business models seen in today’s marketplace including single store, multi-store and multi-tenant marketplaces all from a single platform. This means the Znode Multifront platform is uniquely designed to support growth without requiring brands to frequently upgrade or replatform.

  • Powerful ASP.NET framework scales easily as businesses grow
  • Headless engine platform design using an open REST API makes it easy for companies to build and integrate anything on top of the platform

  • Allows companies to build hundreds of distinctly branded websites using a single shared database

  • Doesn’t require complex upgrading or costly replatforming every few years
  • Includes access to the ASP.NET source code making the platform 100% customizable

The launch of Znode Multifront 9.0 also coincides with the official release of Znode’s new brand identity. In addition to a brightened color palette, the Znode logo design features a “Znodesphere” representative of Znode’s steadfast commitment to thoughtful innovation and powerful platform design.

eCommerce Speed vs Revenue Calculator

There have been a lot of articles recently about the effects of your eCommerce shop speed vs potential revenue loss. In fact, we even posted one earlier this year.

But when you are reading those numbers, it can be hard to directly relate it to your business. That is why here at Znode, we have created a Website Speed vs Revenue calculator to show you how much your site’s speed could be costing you.

Here is a recap of the statistics:

  • Nearly half of web users expect a site to load in 2 seconds or less
  • 79% of shoppers who experience website trouble say they won’t return to the website and purchase again, and 44% of those people said they would tell a friend about their poor experience
  • A 1-second delay in page response can result in a 7% reduction in conversions

The example we’re sure many of you has seen is if an eCommerce site is making $100,000 per day, a 1-second page delay could potentially cost them $2.5 million in lost sales every year.

So how does that relate to you?  We’ve created this calculator so that you can plug in your estimated annual sales and your site’s load time to determine your potential revenue loss based on the 7% figure.


Need help determining your site’s load time? Here are a few tools:

If your site’s load time is costing you money, speak with a Znode representative today to find out how our eCommerce platform was built for speed (among other things).
