ExpressionEngine eCommerce Integration
Clarity eCommerce Integration with ExpressionEngine CMS
A CMS integration with Clarity eCommerce™ gives your business complete control. The first step in the integration process is choosing a CMS suited to your company's needs. ExpressionEngine is a great CMS for B2B eCommerce. ExpressionEngine is renowned for it security, despite its open source status, and is supported by a team of full-time developers. By storing content and templates separately, ExpressionEngine allows for extensive customization. ExpressionEngine is ideal for companies seeking custom, beyond-the-box options for their customer-facing website and back-end functionality specifically built around their internal workflow.
Unlike most content management systems, ExpressionEngine does not require designers and developers to work within themes, allowing companies to design without restrictions on front-end appearance. Built on a PHP with a MySQL database engine, the CMS is highly accessible and compatible with most web browsers. Options to create custom data entry fields and delete unnecessary fields allows for an efficient data entry process, and prevents administrators from inadvertently making unwanted site changes. When combined with Clarity eCommerce™, ExpressionEngine affords you full control over all aspects of your eCommerce business.
Custom-built with enterprise and B2B needs in mind, Clarity eCommerce™ gives you the option of complete independence from your CMS, meaning that it can be added as a module within ExpressionEngine or used separately as an independent software platform. This makes it easy to incorporate Clarity eCommerce™ into your existing business processes. No matter which CMS you use, Clarity eCommerce™ allows your eCommerce business to reach its full potential.

- Professionally-backed security
- Browser compatibility
- Templating options
