How the integration of Alokai and BigCommerce was done?

The integration process started in November 2021. The team was working hard to release the first beta version in January 2022. All of the features from v1 has been covered in February 2022. During that process, implemented functionalities were being tested by the QA team. Additionally, thanks to the help from our partner, BigCommerce, we were able to address the most challenging issues.

At Alokai we really value the quality of our projects. You may be assured that the integration is not only stable but also secure. In cooperation with one of our partners, a security audit was performed. This helped our development team to make sure all the possible vulnerabilities are eliminated.
