Find out what we're working on + planning + thinking about + what we've finished.
Here you can find an overview of the things we’re working on and which will be available over the next few weeks.
This page contains list of all new TronShop features and bugfixes which are already approved by us and we plan to do it and launch them in next weeks or months according to their complexity. You can see estimated launch time in detail of every feature:
This page contains list of all TronShop features which are still open to final decision if we do it or not and also when and with how priority. Some of features has also open range of functionality, because there exists more options how to implement them.
We created TronShop for you. We will continue in improvements and adding new features. But there are hundreds of ideas. We need your feedback to know which features are the most requested, which suppliers you need the most and which options of possible features are important for you. You can vote and influence on which features we focus first and with which suppliers we integrate as first. Let us know what do you want sending e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org At this moment we will be glad for your feedback sent by e-mail. Thank you for joining our customer community and help us to create the best promotional webshop ever!
We started development of TronShop almost exactly before year, in the half of April 2019. We don’t use any existing platform, framework or open source solution like Magento, Shopify etc. We start completely from scratch and design whole architecture, webshop, administration and all data flows especially for promotional industry and all its specific. The benefit of this decision is that we have no limitations, we can change absolutely everything and we do not have to complicate adapt to the existing foundations and data structures, which is very often either restrictive or very expensive to "bend" to the needs of the specifics of our industry.
Another advantage and difference from all of our competitors is the overall architecture and technology. Many of them have been developing their systems for many years, but more years ago the latest virtualization and cloud technologies providing unlimited scaling such as Docker and Kubernetes were not yet available and used in typically webshop development. What does it mean?
We built our entire platform on the most modern and the latest cloud technologies that allow us to unlimited power scaling and run the service as close as possible to customers to offer the best experience and top speed.
Standard webshop architecture means a webserver (one physical or virtual server) running one or more webshop. However, this server always has physical limits that cannot be exceeded. If the capacity is not enough, another server will be launched and new webshops will be placed on it or some of the webshop will be moved to new server. But one webshop almost never can run on 10 servers if it needs such performance. Only way is to buy and build very expensive server farms and invest into rewriting source code of webshop to be able to work on this server farm.
However, this does not apply to us - we can run unlimited count of so-called PromoTron Cloud Clusters anywhere in the world (where Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud or Amazon AWS services are available) and each cluster can contain and serve hundreds or thousands of webshops. Within a single cluster, there are no physical or virtual servers and associated limitations, but only virtual nodes with virtual CPU cores (computing power). And these nodes and CPUs cores can be hundreds or thousands. It only takes a few minutes for us to multiply our computational powers for example from 10 nodes with 20 CPU cores up to 1000 nodes with 2000 CPU cores. One webshop never runs on a particular server, but is served by all these nodes and all available computing power inside cluster. Your webshop can run on thousands of virtual CPU cores at one moment. There is no power limits for any kind and size of webshop. And we of course using advanced loadbalancing for distribution of computing consuption and control of every request from customer browser.
With our technology we can run reliable and very fast webshops for Western Europe as well as Eastern Europe, Russia or even Asia, and always as if everything look like all servers and data are in the customer's country and don’t travel throught half a world. It is very important for customer experience, response rate and speed of webshop.
