Introducing Internet Retailer's Top Tech 2014:
The Leading Solutions Providers to America's Top 1,000 E-Retailers
Retailers, consumer goods manufacturers, high-tech firms, consumer electronics companies and many other stakeholders continue to evaluate the roles of e-commerce technologies and services in their business-to-consumer (B2C) and business-to-business (B2B) interactions. Consider the research that Internet Retailer conducted late last year, which showed that nearly 70% of surveyed e-retailers expected to upgrade their e-commerce technology by the end of 2013. E-commerce platforms commanded the most attention in technology budgets, with fewer than 14% of respondents stating that they planned to develop that platform in-house. For online retailers seeking to gain or preserve a competitive advantage by upgrading their web sites with cutting-edge solutions, sorting through e-commerce vendors to find the right ones can be a daunting experience.
Fortunately, the just-published Top Tech 2014 offers a clear roadmap for online retailers searching for the e-commerce technologies and services preferred by America's top web merchants. The 353-page publication serves as an annual ranking of the 175 biggest vendors based on their number of clients ranked in the Internet Retailer 2013 Top 500 Guide and Second 500 Guide and the web sales those retailers represent. The Top Tech 2014 comprehensively ranks the top vendors in each of 28 solutions categories—from affiliate marketing to web performance management—based on the total 2013 and 2012 e-commerce sales of their clients among North America's Top 1,000 e-retailers.
