Platform handover: understanding IP transfer, source code control and online marketplace ownership
Full ownership, complete services and total freedom with your online marketplace
Our customers entirely own their marketplace, including source code and the liberty to develop or to sell their online marketplace platform. This “on-premise” approach does not however limit the range and coverage of the services we offer. Clients can choose to in-house developments within their own teams, or to outsource to Cocolabs or elsewhere.
Our training programs ensure smooth transitions between teams as strategies evolve and the open source nature of our technology ensures complete independence for our customers.
Getting the “service” in “SaaS” and the independence of on-premise
Online marketplace platforms are core assets for companies that operate them. In this context controlling this asset is therefore a strategic imperative. SaaS solutions threaten this imperative by shifting a core aspect of value away from the marketplace operator. On the other hand, the simplicity offered by SaaS solutions constitutes a strong advantage that companies are tempted by.
Cocolabs bridges the gap between on-premise solutions and their SaaS counterparts by offering full platform ownership coupled with complete services to manage, maintain and host each platform. This entitles our customers to choose between outsourcing marketplace IT or in-housing developments while at any moment being able to switch this model either technically or operationally.
This is made possible by the open source nature of our core technology.
