Magento Gains Traction with Enterprise Merchants and Increases Global Talent Base
Los Angeles, CA - September 27, 2017 - Today at Shop.org’s Digital Retail Conference, Magento Commerce, the worldwide leader in cloud digital commerce innovation, announced record growth of its next generation cloud platform with more than 50 percent of new mid-to-large enterprise customers choosing Magento Commerce Cloud. The company’s strong momentum is a result of product innovation, expanding its community of partners, and hiring top talent across the globe.
Recent momentum comes on the heels of "The Forrester Wave™: B2B Commerce Suites For Midsize Organizations, Q3 2017" report, in which Magento was named a leader. The Wave evaluates the top B2B commerce platforms for mid-sized merchants with $50 to 500 million in total revenue, assessing market presence, breadth of current offerings and strategy. Magento was cited as a “best fit for mid-sized B2B companies that want an open, feature-rich solution that can be extended easily and inexpensively.” The platform’s ability to respond to the rapidly evolving B2B environment and provide merchants with flexible, scalable out-of-the-box solutions were major differentiators for Magento.
“Businesses today need to deliver differentiated experiences that keep pace with consumer expectations” said Mark Lavelle, CEO of Magento Commerce. “Magento’s flexible cloud-based commerce platform is a perfect fit for businesses trying to keep up with the pace of change and the with the expectations of digital transformation. The success and adoption of our flagship product Magento Commerce has been the foundation of our growth.
