Internet Retailer's
Top Tech 2014

Published: October 2013

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 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. Top Tech 2014 offers you:

  • 9,273 total data points
  • 281 listings of the top technology and services vendors in each of 28 categories
  • At-a-glance breakdown of the top suppliers in 15 major merchandising categories

Digital Edition

Internet Retailer offers this indispensable research publication in an interactive digital format. The digital version of the Top Tech 2014 is not simply an e-book or PDF; there are several value-added custom features available with this digital edition. When you purchase the digital publication, you can zoom in and flip through pages with ease. An easily navigable interface allows much faster access to data. For example, the list in the table of contents instantly links users to the pages containing each solution category, and every URL listed in each vendor's listing is hyperlinked to that vendor's web site, making it easy to move from the profile and data reported on a particular company to the site itself. A keyword search function allows digital subscribers to find all references to a certain word or phrase, enabling users, for example, to search all web sites that use a certain e-commerce solution provider.
