What is Sylius?

highly flexible and extensible

Sylius’s Banner 2

Built on the market-leading PHP web application framework, Symfony, Sylius is a highly flexible and extensible ecommerce system designed to provide a custom ecommerce solution.

The open source ecommerce platform has a ground-up approach, which makes it easy to use and set up. You can quickly tailor it to your brand’s look and feel, as well as your business requirements and API connectivity.    In turn, this speeds up your time to market, allowing your platform to pivot and integrate new products and services much quicker than other competing top-down products, like Magento. These elements can also be integrated into multi-devices for a fraction of the cost, in comparison to similar competing open source projects.    The platform also provides the long-term benefits of ease of development and options to customise your site, as you build your brand and offering over time. By doing this, the platform allows you to focus on growth while managing and/or connecting to your key business systems.   As a result, the net effect of Sylius means you can build and develop a market-leading ecommerce site that’s user-friendly, feature-rich and cost effective.

Giving You Valuable Support

Sylius Ecommerce Development Agency - TCO Sylius Jira Atlassian@2x

All web projects need maintenance and adaptation – more so when you consider that a customer’s journey can always be improved. But when it comes to ecommerce, the constantly changing environment often leads to businesses needing ongoing website support.

This means the total cost of ownership (TCO) can be considerably high. The lifetime cost of a Magento build, for instance, can reach six figures, with most integration work requiring heavy lifting.

At Soap Media, we are a Sylius ecommerce development agency, which means we provide Sylius support that makes your TCO much more cost effective. We also use Jira and Atlassian software to help provide a service-level agreement that supports your business growth while following best practices in digital marketing.    In addition to this, we’ve supported our ecommerce partners by integrating the platform with a range of software to better cater for their customers and further improve UX. This includes providing more ways to pay, creating options to use multiple vouchers, and building workflows to help customers choose the best products for them.      All this ensures we deliver dynamic and fully integrated Sylius websites, which we can easily scale to your needs and implement new features to bring you a top performance.
