Forward is reinventing the e-commerce platform as a cloud API.
Developers use Forward to build and scale e-commerce apps with integrated payments, shipments, product catalogs, checkout flows, blogs and other content. All the power and none of the hassle that comes with managing database infrastructure.
- Native libraries for every web and mobile programming language
- Focus on user interface, no database servers to manage
- 50-100x faster than Magento (out of the box)
- Easy to extend
Forward is like Salesforce.com for e-commerce
