All in a Unified Admin

Having the features you need is only half the battle. What makes Workarea a top ecommerce platform is that it is built for both non-technical and technical users. Teams can collaborate, execute and perform with confidence.

On-Demand Commerce Cloud Demo

Workarea Commerce Cloud offers merchants the most advanced tools for growing their business with integrated content management, search, promotions management and merchant insights. Workarea Site Planner allows future versions of the experience to be previewed and automatically scheduled for publish.

Site Planner

Unique to Workarea, Site Planner gives you the power to manage and test multiple scheduled changes to your live storefront. 

Site Planner is the solution to the midnight conference call where IT, marketing, and management all hang on the phone waiting to see if what looked good on staging also works in production.

Easily review, edit and launch enhancements to pages, content, discounts, pricing, categories, products and navigation. Like many other features in Workarea, you can track all changes and share comments with team members. Preview and test your content, pricing and discounts in the production environment before scheduling them to go live, roll back groups of changes with a single click, and save time by reusing site-wide campaigns.

Intra-Day Releases
Prepare, preview and schedule site updates without the need of a staging environment.

Search-First Administration
Using the same search as your storefront, easily navigate to any level of the admin.

Streamlined Workflows
Each section of the admin has its own specific workflow so you can accomplish common tasks intuitively and in the least amount of steps.

Collaboration and Audit History

Winning teams start with good communication and collaboration. Workarea is designed to enable better communication, and in turn collaboration with features like: Site Planner, inline Activity Feeds, Collaborative Commenting, Notifications and Alerts. 

Activity Feeds offer admin users a full view into the history of a particular asset, including changes, time and the administrator who updated it. Commenting allows for admin notes and asynchronous communication as changes are being made. Notifications give a view of recent updates in the system and Alerts are offered to users when the system finds incomplete or incorrect work such as products with missing images or categories without products.

Bulk Editing

Replace manual updates with the Workarea Bulk Editing features. Select multiple products and then quickly add, edit or remove them all at once.

Archive last season's inventory, quickly setup a sale or apply a number of promo codes for a special event. With Bulk Editing, you can fulfill many orders, delete many files, or publish many products all at once. No more need for a separate PIM.

Our Tech Stack

Workarea is built on the web's leading open source technologies.

Workarea APIs

The Workarea APIs allow you build applications and services that can make use of your data and our functionality. Of course, you’ll have programmatic access to all data stored within Workarea, but all storefront functionality is available through our robust API. Our customers are deploying headless commerce applications and creating new experiences with the most complete API on the market.

Ruby on Rails
Ruby on Rails is a popular framework for building web applications. Some of the biggest sites, like Twitter, Github, and Airbnb leverage Rails. Optimized for developer happiness, it’s fast - for both customers and developers.

MongoDB accelerates innovation with a data storage model that easily accommodates changes in your commerce experiences. Workarea developers can quickly handle any curveballs in a retailer’s data without sacrificing any efficiency.

Elasticsearch is the backbone of Workarea, powering so much more than the textual search experience for shoppers. This high-performance search engine drives merchandising, categories, and content, as well as the most delightful admin experience you will ever use.

Redis is a lightning fast in-memory data store. Workarea uses Redis to store its cache, asynchronous jobs, and recommendations data. This enables Workarea to deliver some of the fastest sites on the Internet.
