eCommerce Website Design and Development

At Gravit-e we have a team of eCommerce website design and development experts who have been developing eCommerce websites for clients for over a decade.

We developed our eCommerce platform in-house so that we could guarantee to our customers that there were no restrictions to what was technically possible when it comes to an eCommerce website design and development project with Gravit-e. Thousands of hours, hundreds of days, across years of eCommerce development and design experience have culminated our latest release, Gravit-e 7.

Gravit-e 7 is a advanced eCommerce development platform serving the needs of Business to Consumer (B2C), Business to Business (B2B), and multi-channel businesses and retailers. Designed from the ground-up to handle the complexities of B2B eCommerce alongside the demands of the B2C eCommerce, we believe our platform is unmatched in terms of flexibility and customisation options for your eCommerce design and development project.

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

All versions share a common code base, so it's easy to upgrade from one configuration to another as and when your needs change. 

Gravit-e Launchpad

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. Gravit-e Launchpad includes the full range of business to business eCommerce functionality, making it the ideal platform for distribution businesses to start trading online with their existing customers.

Gravit-e Discovery

With all of the functionality of Launchpad plus advanced content management and eMarketing tools, Gravit-e Discovery helps you to expand your eCommerce business with greater reach and customer engagement. Gravit-e Discovery is the ideal platform for a retail / business to consumer eCommerce site.

Gravit-e Enterprise

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 eCommerce 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.

No Wordpress, No Magento, No Umbraco, and No Excuses

We cut our teeth deploying open source solutions, including Wordpress and Drupal, to our clients,  our founders remain strong open source advocates, and our platform sits on a bedrock of Linux, Apache, MySQL, and PHP.  So... why development our own eCommerce platform?

As we increased our understanding of the strengths of open source platforms, we also grew to understand the limitations of working with tools like Woocommerce, Magento, and Umbraco when it comes to complex eCommerce website design and development. We saw projects slow down when we had to work around, rather than with, the platform because the customer's eCommerce requirements didn't fit the "cookie cutter" of the underlying platform. Furthermore, we saw the risk of allowing an unaccountable third party to control the destiny of our business and, through us, our client's businesses and of relying on a vast, but varied, community of developers who worked outside of our control or influence.

Today, the vast majority of our clients have migrated to Gravit-e from Wordpress, Magento, Umbraco, or a similar platform.
