Do I need licensing for the accelerator?

No, the accelerator is free-of-charge for Mindcurv customers.

Do I need to pay for warranties or upgrades?

No, there are no warranties or upgrades that need to be paid for.

How is the accelerator useful if I’m starting a B2B project?

If you’re starting a B2B project with commercetools, the accelerator will help you navigate requirements, architecture and development. For example, how can these APIs be structured and orchestrated to achieve desired capabilities? Or where will responsibilities lie for the roles and permissions of customers?

The accelerator provides user stories for development and features that are not available in the base commercetools feature set.

How is project time reduced with the B2B Accelerator+?

We’re confident that up to 30 project acceleration will be evident, right from discovery, through all delivery phases. In addition to the software, you’ll save time on the discovery assets documenting the requirements and user experience. Savings will also accrue from following the “railings” or guidelines of the process and the continuous deployment pipelines.

How does the accelerator help me get the best out of commercetools?

You can view the B2B Accelerator+ as an API orchestration layer that is aligned with top industry thinking on composable commerce.

I’m not a beginner in B2B digital commerce platforms. Is the accelerator still useful?

Yes. Even the most digitally mature organizations will benefit from using the accelerator. The wireframes, documentation, diagrams and code will add up to faster delivery and earlier ROI.

Which cloud subscription will I need to run the application?

You can use any cloud service provider or on-premise solution. The tooling is fully agnostic, but the use of some of the features will require configuration – for example sending emails, offline processes, and authentication.

Can Mindcurv operate my platform?

Yes, cloud platform operation is one of our primary services. Learn more about our managed services offering and how simplify the day-to-day operations of your platform

How is this different from a Hybris B2B commerce accelerator?

The B2B Accelerator+ is built to augment commercetools’ features for B2B, extended APIs, and run features independently, while a Hybris accelerator runs on top of SAP cloud commerce following a more monolithic design pattern.

Is the accelerator compatible with my B2C platform?

Yes, it is compatible. Many of the extensions and features that support internationalization, multi-channel configuration, units of measure etc., can be used to enhance your B2C application. We have additional expertise in B2C that can help you create, scale and evolve your platforms. Get in touch to know more.

Will Mindcurv support me for future commercetools API changes that affect my platform?

Yes, of course. Mindcurv assists all customers with upgrades to use new and improved APIs.
