Gravit-e is a third generation eCommerce platform serving the needs of Business to Consumer (B2C), Business to Business (B2B), and multi-channel businesses and retailers. 

Launchpad, Discovery, Enterprise

The Gravit-e platform is available in three configurations; Launchpad, Discovery, and Enterprise.

Gravit-e Launchpad is the perfect platform on which to start building your long-term eCommerce business with all the essential functionality that you need to succeed online.

With all of the functionality of Launchpad plus advanced content management and eMarketing tools, Gravit-e Discovery helps you to expand your online business with greater reach and customer engagement.

For customers with global reach, Gravit-e Enterprise is the ultimate solution, with all of the functionality and power of Gravit-e Discovery plus added functionality to handle multi-currency pricing, multi-lingual content, and even running multiple domains with independent branding and content.

Three Choices, One System

Although Gravit-e comes in a range of configurations to suit different customer needs there is only one Gravit-e platform, regularly updated by our team and deployed to our supported customers. Gravit-e operates on a “rolling release” policy – this means that when new functionality is added it is made available to all customers through regular software updates. The world of eCommerce is constantly evolving and we believe that only a platform that acknowledges this and is engineered to continually deliver new functionality and features to customers can support a business in the long term. It is also possible to upgrade seamlessly from one version of Gravit-e to another.

You may start your journey with us as a Launchpad customer but you will have the option to upgrade to Gravit-e Discovery or Gravit-e Enterprise if your needs change in the future, paying only the difference in the software cost and for any consultancy days or services you need as part of your upgrade.
