Before ditching your current platform and embarking on a complex migration, consider adding or developing extensions
In some cases, companies may realize their current platform is missing an important feature, or even an entire module, to support their growth. Typical consultants advocate for customizations or even switching platforms but, although these may in fact be the best solutions, companies should first explore the possibility of extending its platform’s functionalities. Modern platforms allow developers to create extensions that can be tightly integrated to their core systems, in order to expand its functionalities and solve specific business needs.
At Eureka Labs, we help clients design, code and implement proprietary extensions to their existing platforms, especially when there is an opportunity to create a differentiator or unlock exponential value in their core business. Examples include adding a product recommendation engine to an eCommerce platform and a subscription logistics extension to an ERP.
