For eight years now, Cocomore builds large but also smaller websites with Drupal. Since then the team, the amount of projects and the possibilities have become more extensive. There were special solutions for special requirements in the past, for example content management systems (CMS) for managing content in websites (Wordpress, Jooma, Drupal) or e-Commerce systems for managing online shops like Magento. But those times are gone. In future, the challenge will be to integrate all these standalone systems to “rich-content-systems”, which will offer all the above mentioned functions within one big full service solution.
The integration and the interaction of these systems with each other offer the opportunity to use all the convenient functions of the different components together. That way, it will be possible to present the users a much better online solution with much more and much better functions. Just displaying a photo and some text for a product in a shop is not sufficient anymore today. The modern user expects more, especially concerning interactions with the shop itself like videos, custom reports, votings or a discussion board where he can get much more information and where he can interchange with others about the products. A pioneer in this sector is Amazon, where the user can comment and vote for a product - so users can get feedback from other users. Moreover, videos and further information is shown. This is today’s standard. This is what the user expects and every other shop in the web needs to come up to this mark.
