Imagine a new retail enterprise solution that leverages new technologies while maintaining a low total cost of ownership and an accelerated time to market. Today, that possibility becomes a reality with eBay Inc.'s new retailer solution.
Specifically geared towards enabling omnichannel success for mid-sized retailers, the new solution leverages existing gateways within eBay Inc.'s latest version of Magento Enterprise Edition and provides access to eBay Enterprise's omnichannel enabling capabilities. Working jointly, Magento and eBay Enterprise can now provide emerging retailers with the same capabilities leveraged by the top 100 Internet Retailer companies.
“As our customers scale beyond $100 million dollars in revenue, flexibility and extensibility of ecommerce technologies become mission-critical to survival and success,” said Roy Rubin, chief operating officer of Magento. “We are excited to announce that new and existing Magento Enterprise Edition customers now have an unprecedented competitive edge in the marketplace with eBay Enterprise’s comprehensive omnichannel solution suite.”
More specifically, the new joint solution combines the highly flexible, open source front end customization of Magento Enterprise Edition with eBay Enterprise’s modular omnichannel solution suite that includes a retail optimized order management platform comprised of: distributed order management, omnichannel inventory visibility, store based fulfillment and drop ship management. The joint solution can also include modular options from eBay Enterprise’s Demand Generation, Fulfillment and Customer Service capabilities.
Additionally, the joint solution will be supported by a robust partner program leveraging Magento’s massive partner and developer network and specifically aligned to the unique needs of mid-sized retailers, and is available to both new and existing Magento Enterprise Edition customers.
“By integrating Magento with the eBay Enterprise omnichannel solution suite, new and existing Magento merchants can take advantage of our leadership in large scale retail technologies, and get access to the solutions they need to grow without having to re-architect or re-evaluate their existing storefront implementations," said Chris Saridakis, president of eBay Enterprise. “Retailers large and small understand the importance of swift technology enablement as a strategy to win in an increasing competitive environment.”
