Why Enterprise Use Magento 2 Adobe Commerce?

Prior to Magento 2, Kimberly-Clark was using Drupal as their e-commerce backend, but now the enterprise uses and takes advantage of Adobe Commerce.

There are several reasons why enterprise corporations like Kimberly-Clark may choose to move from Drupal to Magento for their e-commerce platform. Here are some key factors:

E-commerce Focus

Magento is specifically designed for e-commerce or online sales, whereas Drupal is a more versatile content management system (CMS).

As enterprise corporations increasingly prioritize digital sales and CX (Customer Experience), they often require a dedicated e-commerce platform that offers specialized features and functionalities tailored to their business needs.

For instance, B2B customers typically require more in-depth information about a product compared to B2C customers.

Similarly on the Kimberly Clark website, with the help of Magento 2 Product Attachment, it allow businesses to provide detailed specifications, technical data sheets, and other relevant documents in the form of PDF and other formats.

Scalability and Performance

Magento is capable to handle large product catalogs, complex pricing structures, and high transaction volumes. As enterprises grow their online operations, they need a platform that can sustain their increasing demands without compromising performance.

This is where Magento’s code architecture and built-in scalability features make it a suitable choice for these organizations.

Customization and Flexibility

Enterprises often have unique requirements and complex business processes. The Magento platform allows extensive customizations, enabling Magento development company like Webkul to modify their e-commerce storefront and backend to their specific needs.

Adobe Commerce (Magento) offers a modular architecture, flexible APIs, and an extensive extensions list, enabling businesses to integrate with third-party systems and build custom functionalities easily.

B2B Capabilities

Many enterprise corporations have a significant B2B customer base and require advanced B2B features, such as custom pricing, negotiations, and complex ordering workflows.

While other platforms can support basic B2B functionality, but Adobe Commerce B2B offers a comprehensive suite of B2B features out of the box. This makes Magento a preferred choice for big companies aiming to streamline their B2B operations.

Ecosystem and Support

Magento has a robust and active community of developers, agencies, and extension providers, offering various resources and support.

Since enterprises have complex requirements and often need specialized assistance, the availability of a thriving ecosystem around Magento becomes a significant advantage.

There is a wealth of documentation, forums, and experienced Magento professionals who can help with development, customization, and troubleshooting.
