Senetic, an international provider of IT solutions, wished to quickly enter new markets worldwide. The company was looking for a global, reliable and flexible platform that would be compatible with solutions already used in their business. The answer was Magento 2 Commerce, whose implementation has been handled by Divante eCommerce Software House.
Present on the market for over 10 years, Senetic specializes in providing cloud services, as well as top-notch networking devices, servers and IT software. With their expert knowledge and 27 offices, the company supplies more than 2 million clients each year throughout all regions, including Asia, the Middle East, Europe, Africa and both Americas.

WHAT DID THEY NEED?
The need for a rapidly-scalable eCommerce solution
In the initial years of expansion, Senetic was based on a custom eCommerce system developed in-house. Unfortunately, due to their accelerating growth and new business goals, the existing system wasn’t efficient enough. Senetic had to decide on a new solution, an eCommerce platform that would ensure the stability of business and provide a toolset suitable for entering multiple new markets. The future eCommerce platform had to be flexible and easy to use in order to launch new stores at relatively low cost and in a short time.
“What we needed was a universal and repeatable solution, a solution thanks to which we could set up new stores fast and enter new markets. We work with various, widely available providers and the new platform had to integrate with their solutions as well.” - Łukasz Bojar, Vice President Sales & Marketing, Senetic S.A.
To find the best solution, Senetic decided to get in touch with Divante, an eCommerce software house. Cooperation began at the end of 2017.
WHAT DID WE DO?
Business analysis phase
The implementation timeline began with a business analysis phase, lasting over two months. During multiple meetings and workshops, partners backed by Divante's tech leader, architect, business analyst and UX designer, managed to create personas, gathered requirements, analyzed data migration and integration processes, and more. At the end of this phase, the companies were able to create a Business Requirements Documents (BRD) which described the specifics of this project and determined all technical requirements.
Senetic was looking for an eCommerce platform with:
- a universal and repeatable eCommerce platform base
- multi-store feature
- a wide range of ready-to-use modules available
Divante proposed Magento 2 Commerce as the most well-suited platform. Used in a wide range of eCommerce projects, Magento proved to be a global, reliable and flexible solution. What is more, with the Magento platform, Senetic has access to a marketplace of modules fitting to the global need of markets from the whole world. The question was Magento’s scalability. Senetic had ambitious plans to set up over 150 stores on a single instance of Magento 2 Commerce. To be sure, both partners agreed to examine Magento’s scalability with an MVP version of the store.
