Press for Demandware
NetSuite Inc. has long held a strong place among small retailers looking for a software-as-a-service e-commerce platform supported by back-end accounting and financial software. Now it’s out to move up market to serve much larger customers, and it’s enticing them with a broader range of technology.
Demandware, a dealer in on-demand ecommerce, has released the seasonal release of its Demandware eCommerce on-demand platform – Summer ’10. The company claims the upgrade offers new efficient optimization abilities that will help maximize conversion and average order size across Web, mobile and call center channels.
Department stores led year-over-year growth in first quarter e-commerce sales, with a rise of 76.1%, e-commerce technology provider Demandware Inc. says in a performance index based on its U.S. and European clients. The index, which is based on retail e-commerce sales at 126 web sites that operate on Demandware’s software-as-a-service e-commerce platform, also notes that Q1 year-over-year growth at European sites far outpaced their U.S. counterparts, 66.9% to 18.3%.
Irving, TX-based Michaels Stores has hired Demandware to relaunch its website and e-commerce capabilities. The service provider will add enhanced customer ratings, product reviews, a hosted social community and user-generated content to the company's site.
