SAAS Software as a Service AG

e-commerce software for grocery stores

SAAS Software as a Service AG enables retailers to sell online and leverage their stores for delivery and pick-up programs with highly efficient in-store pick-pack-ship capabilities. This enables retailers to meet and exceed the needs of their customers for omnichannel shopping and delivery. SAAS delivers this through the Grocery Commerce Cloud, a cloud-native Headless Commerce microservices API platform that enables grocers to transform their supermarket business and to thrive in the highly competitive grocery marketplace. Grocers future proof their business with an agile, headless, cloud-native commerce software to drive innovation and cost efficiency, while leveraging existing technology and physical store locations.

Grocery Commerce Cloud

Grocery Commerce Cloud is a cloud-native headless microservices commerce software tailored to the specific needs of grocers’ online and omnichannel businesses. Unlike other leading commerce software platforms, the Grocery Commerce Cloud supports the unique needs specific to grocers. This includes support for weight-based pricing, local delivery, in-store highly efficient wave picking, postal-code related ordering, route-optimized delivery as well as grocery specific payments and customer loyalty processes. Beyond core commerce processes, Grocery Commerce Cloud’s proprietary wave-picking algorithm boosts store associated in-store picking performance, lowering cost and protecting the margins of grocers. And with the Grocery Commerce Cloud they keep control over their brand, their product portfolio and their pricing strategy. Grocery Commerce Cloud is a fully headless microservices software, enabling a wide range of customer touch-points. This includes online, responsive web app, native mobile app, voice or text-based interfaces, and IoT - from one cloud-based multi-tenant solution. Grocery Commerce Cloud provides a pre-configured responsive web app for grocers to launch online and mobile stores quickly. The Grocer Success Program provides clients and partners with both technical and in-store process support to ensure clients gain maximum efficiency with the platform - especially in-store picking, packing and shipping processes. Grocery Commerce Cloud is a subscription-based solution with revenue-based pricing model, with very little up-front investment required. If you are a regional or national or multi-national grocer, contact us today to receive a complete overview of the solution.

SAAS software is true cloud-native multi-tenancy headless microservices commerce. This allows agile development and continuous deployment. The Grocery Commerce Cloud is based on the most up-to-date technologies. Business logic is part of JAVA based microservices. As a storefront there is either a pre-configured single page web app based on Angular. This keeps cost at a minimum and guarantees rocket fast go-to-market as grocery specific features are already built in. Or retailers can operate the Grocery Commerce Cloud microservices as headless commerce API’s. This allows the development of basically any kind of user interface. Even more individual web apps, native mobile apps, voice commerce solutions or anything else the IT future might bring. The microservices concept in the Cloud releases IT from infrastructure concerns and brings agility back to sales and marketing. Issues around performance, scaling or peaks become history. It doesn’t matter if you run a single grocery store or a big food supermarket chain - the Grocery Commerce Cloud architecture is ready to handle it. Forget about system operations issues and focus on your business and your customers! The Grocery Commerce Cloud is based on many years of online experience and tailored to the needs of the grocery business. Both Online-Shop and Back-Office are rich of industry-specific features.

As SAAS Software as a Service AG we are proud to offer our cloud-based solution for the food retailing business in a real Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) manner. What that means? You pay based on your actual usage. And as it is extremely difficult to predict (and most often even unfair?) how to generate bills based on parameters like API calls, number of cart transactions, orders and so on, we simply don’t do this. Instead we have a very simple pricing model. We charge based on the online turnover generated with our software solution Grocery Commerce Cloud. That means you start with a small bill and practically no investment risk. Then you grow your business with a smaller commission percentage on the bill. Finally there are almost no limits to further growth and you run your business at a very competitive commission rate. Fair enough? Contact us, we are happy to further explain and to START, GROW and RUN also your food retailing business!
