CAMPBELL, CA — (August 31, 2017) - Magento Commerce, the worldwide leader in cloud digital commerce innovation, was named as a leader in “The Forrester Wave™: B2B Commerce Suites For Midsize Organizations, Q3 2017” report. The research firm cited the Magento platform, an all-in-one cloud solution with a full set of B2B and B2C functionality, as a “best fit for mid-sized B2B companies that want an open, feature-rich solution that can be extended easily and inexpensively. ”

“We’re seeing a wave of global demand as more B2B companies adopt digital strategies driven by the desire to meet heightened client expectations and the need to differentiate through personalized, self-service experiences across multiple channels,” said Mark Lavelle, CEO of Magento Commerce. “Magento offers businesses the agility to respond in a rapidly changing environment with fast, cost effective time-to-market solutions enabled by our flexible, cloud-based platform.   Backed by our world-class ecosystem of Solution and Technology partners, our newest product release makes many of the leading B2B capabilities available “out of the box”, and builds on our long track-record of leadership in B2B Commerce.

The evaluation criteria include market presence and multiple components of current offering and strategy. Magento received the highest score possible in 14 sub-categories.
