It is there! The most extensive version of Ucommerce since the content and commerce platform was first published in 2008: Ucommerce 9. We took the webinar to give you the most interesting insights.
Ucommerce 9 is released two weeks late, due to the repercussions of the COVID-19 pandemic. But it also comes with many sophisticated features that its users should be very happy about. Founder of Ucommerce, Søren Spelling Lund, explains how development went about. In an intensive exchange with the Ucommerce partners – which also includes byte5 –, it was evaluated which innovations would be the most relevant to implement. The results were clear: the loyal Ucommerce users wanted an enhanced performance on the one hand and a more modern UI on the other. Said and done!
When developing Ucommerce 9, its performance was tweaked a lot. With this new version, web shops with particularly short loading times can now be created – even with a large number of stored products of one million and more. Behind the strong performance is the handcrafted search-driven API with the descriptive name Bolt, which enables loading times of less than 20 milliseconds. Despite the new API, you can easily and quickly migrate to Ucommerce 9. It comes in 24 languages.
Project Bolt includes a lot of breaking changes; one of them makes querying much more straightforward compared to our current APIsSøren Spelling Lund, CPO & Gründer
The two new Ucommerce 9 apps Catalogs and Products are also a joy to use. They ensure order and clarity in their respective areas by enabling easy editing of categories, media data and so on. Søren presented them in detail in some demos in the webinar at the end of March. There will be more apps in the future. Speaking of the future: In the Ucommerce roadmap, you can see exactly which developments Ucommerce is still planning for 2020.
