Retailers benefit through increased choice and ability to move at the speed of the market The Vcommerce platform will process billions of dollars in transactions in 2007
SCOTTSDALE, AZ – September 18, 2007 - Vcommerce Corporation (www.vcommerce.com), the leader in enterprise eCommerce solutions, today announced the Vcommerce Enterprise Connector (VECTORTM). VECTOR enables best-in-class third party application and service providers to easily integrate with and leverage the power of Vcommerce Enterprise. Clients benefit from increased choice and flexibility, and an easy way to integrate their existing systems as they build or expand upon their eCommerce initiatives. Today, over 50 best-in-class applications and services are integrated to Vcommerce Enterprise TM. These include leading providers such as FAST (Oseax: FAST.OL), Omniture (Nasdaq: OMTR), and PayPal (Nasdaq: EBAY).
Vcommerce is focused on helping enterprise-class organizations grow their eCommerce businesses more quickly and more cost-effectively than they could on their own. Vcommerce Enterprise enables retailers to avoid the nightmare of "mash-up" solutions where they become the system integrator. Retailers can quickly deploy an end-to-end total solution or pick only the pieces they need to compliment their existing eCommerce investments.
"We elected to open the Vcommerce Enterprise platform so that our clients could more quickly benefit from advancements in the fast-moving eCommerce marketplace," said Dan Kennedy, Vcommerce president and chief technology officer. "With our Software as a Service (SaaS) platform the sum is truly greater than the parts. We enable clients to `future proof` their eCommerce business, picking and choosing what services they want and need while leveraging the investments they have already made," continued Kennedy.
Applications and services integrated through VECTOR can leverage capabilities such as web-based administration tools, single sign-on, unified billing, easy upgrades, dashboards and scorecards as well as reporting services and other benefits associated with the power of Vcommerce Enterprise. With Vcommerce Enterprise, clients are always in control of what matters most to them.
"Vcommerce Enterprise, combined with the power of FAST ImPulse, will help eCommerce sites create the search-powered storefronts that stand out from the pack, said Rob Lancaster, vice president of channel development at FAST. He continued, "By leveraging VECTOR, we can now reach a multitude of customers with a single integration with Vcommerce Enterprise." "Integrating Vcommerce Enterprise and Omniture`s Online Business Optimization Platform through VECTOR and Omniture Genesis creates a powerful solution for online merchants," said Mark Dillon, vice president of channel sales at Omniture. "The partnership speeds our mutual customers` time-to-market with marketing and eCommerce solutions that provide a more relevant online experience that builds greater brand awareness, loyalty, and conversion," continued Dillon.
In 2007, Vcommerce Enterprise will securely and efficiently process billions of dollars in consumer transactions.
