Agile & FluidThe Mercatus Platform is a SaaS-based (Software as a Service), integrated commerce solution designed to enhance and reinforce digital engagement. Our solutions redefine the shopping experience and help transform boundless data into actionable insights. Our RESTful application programming interfaces (API) are technology agnostic. In other words, they can be used with any development environment including Java, .NET, LAMP (e.g. PHP, Python), as well as mobile applications (e.g. iOS, Android, HTML5). A comprehensive SDK Development Framework, which includes comprehensive documentation and sample code, enables you to access information, as well as rapidly develop compelling applications with the Platform.
Integration & DataMercatus drives the development of solutions for the complexities of today’s retail technology. Our platform complements existing systems and infrastructure across existing and emerging technology providers—so you can continue to maximize your return on existing investments. This level of integration is achieved via our in-depth knowledge of the industry and associated technologies including a variety of SOAP/XML interfaces, as well as data feeds. A wide assortment of data (e.g. customer, store, location, product, flyer, coupon, analytical) is automatically ingested/exported as required to meet your unique solution requirements. The aggregation of your data is an important and fundamental step with respect to the creation of integrated and cohesive solutions. We design solutions to leverage your existing assets and intellectual property and provide a strategic operational framework for more informed decisions in an increasingly competitive environment.
AccessibleAn easy-to-use web-centric interface provides an integrated Mercatus Platform Console to manage, unify and process the data captured from interfaces and data feeds. Your data is centrally managed and accessed through secure outbound APIs that allow your software applications and information systems to easily communicate with each other. This enables your IT teams and solution partners to efficiently and rapidly author valuable new shopper-centric services, as well as extracts valuable insights with respect to key operational metrics that provide unique competitive and sustainable advantage.
SecureMercatus recognizes the importance of privacy and security of your shoppers’ data and other proprietary data. We employ industry-leading security practices to strictly regulate access and encrypt shopper and other confidential data. Permissions to perform certain operations or view specific data are controlled via role-based access control (RBAC) security features. Any given user’s access rights are centrally administered via the Platform Console. For example, a given marketing employee may have access to flyer data while a customer-support employee may have access to a shopper purchase history and loyalty status.
