Hard Problems Made Easy


Open source technologies provide many benefits for retail companies looking to enhance their operations and customer experience. At Durable Programming, we specialize in leveraging open source tools to deliver cost-effective, flexible solutions for retailers. Here’s how we can help:

E-commerce Platforms

For online retailers, having a robust and user-friendly e-commerce platform is essential. We have extensive experience customizing and extending open source e-commerce frameworks like Magento, WooCommerce, and Spree. Whether you need to add new payment gateways, improve site performance, or create unique customer experiences, our team can build upon these platforms to meet your specific needs.

Point-of-Sale Systems

Modern point-of-sale (POS) systems go beyond just processing transactions. Open source POS software like Odoo and Chromis POS offer features for inventory management, customer loyalty programs, sales reporting and more. We can deploy and tailor these systems to integrate with your existing retail tech stack, helping to streamline in-store operations.

Inventory & Supply Chain Management

Efficiently managing inventory levels and your supply chain is crucial for retail success. Tools like the open source ERP Odoo include inventory and warehouse management capabilities that we can implement for better demand forecasting, automated procurement, and real-time stock tracking. Optimizing your inventory with these solutions helps avoid stockouts while reducing carrying costs.

Data Analytics and BI

Retail generates a huge amount of valuable data on sales trends, customer behavior, product performance and more. Open source business intelligence tools like Metabase and Apache Superset allow you to unite siloed data and build insightful dashboards to guide better decision making. We can set up the data pipelines and build the visualizations to make your retail data accessible and actionable.

Personalization and Marketing Automation

Engaging customers with personalized communication is key for building loyalty and driving repeat business. Open source marketing automation tools like Mautic and Octane AI enable targeted email, SMS and push notification campaigns based on customer behaviors and preferences. We can help you leverage your customer data to power timely, relevant marketing touchpoints across channels.
