Strengths

  • Znode Multifront 9.0 is an all-in-one eCommerce platform that includes a fully integrated CMS, DAM, PIM, OMS and advanced search functions. The Znode solution is flexible enough for any business model - including single site, multisite and multi-tenant, using a single centralized integrated system. 
  • A true headless commerce solution with the concept built into the core. Their headless engine is wrapped by an API.

Weaknesses

  • Znode needs to work on enhancing the plugin framework available through Multifront. This will allow their community to build their own extensions and make them available to users.

Key Differentiator

Znode’s Multifront Multi-Store eCommerce platform lets you easily build one or hundreds of multi brand websites using a single shared database. Whether you have multiple brands, product catalogs, or promotional microsites, Znode Multifront helps you deliver a comprehensive strategy through one single integrated system.

Vendor Comments

Yash Shah, CTO, Znode“The key capabilities needed for eCommerce are built into Multifront, so you don’t need to rely on many 3rd party tools, which reduces complexities & management overhead. The headless engine architecture and robust API capabilities are developer friendly and built into the core, while the UI is also marketer friendly. Being able to customize and grow with ease on our platform means that our clients no longer need to worry about being too big or too small for their solution.”
