BeCommerce is NOT a standalone online store where you manage your products, inventory, orders, ordering, fulfillment, etc. BeCommerce is for businesses that already perform these functions and simply need a web front-end to to their existing systems that also markets their products effectively. If you are happy with the technology that manages your products, inventory and orders, don't replace it. Consider BeCommerce.
Most off-the-shelf ecommerce software products struggle with content management, which is a major frustration point for many users. So we wrapped Cascade Server CMS around our BeCommerce platform to provide extensive marketing flexibility around the online store and significantly improve SEO-friendliness.
This very flexible, easy-to-use architecture allows richer, more timely marketing directly on the storefront. The underlying ecommerce platform easily plugs into your existing systems to download orders, upload products and upload order status. It functions as a "web layer" over your current infrastructure, minimizing online management of your products and orders.
