The effort required to integrate disparate ecommerce technologies is often a huge burden on the retailer
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) September 22, 2010
Strands Recommender today announced that it has integrated the Strands Recommender personalization and recommendation services into Demandware® eCommerce, the leading on-demand ecommerce platform. As a member of Demandware LINK, a best-of-breed technology partner community committed to removing the integration hurdles that retailers face when adopting ecommerce technologies, Strands Recommender has developed a pre-built and approved integration to Demandware eCommerce, dramatically simplifying the implementation process for its Product Recommendations in a Demandware environment.
“We’re thrilled to have Strands Recommender as a member of our LINK community,” said Jamus Driscoll, vice president of marketing at Demandware. “With the availability of a pre-built integration to Strands Recommender, Demandware clients can now implement one of the industry’s leading product recommendations and personalization platforms in a fraction of the time and money normally required for such integrations. Strands joins us in our quest to make the pain of integration a thing of the past for retailers.”
For online retailers, application integration can be as much as 50 percent of the overall cost and time of an ecommerce implementation. With the pre-built integration between Strands Recommender and Demandware eCommerce, the typical length of time required for implementation can be reduced by up to 50% or 60% and merchants can be up and running in as little as one to two weeks, which translates into measurable cost and time savings for retailers. Demandware LINK integrations and accompanying documentation can be downloaded by Demandware clients and other members of the Link Partner Community at no cost at marketplace.demandware.com.
“The effort required to integrate disparate ecommerce technologies is often a huge burden on the retailer,” said Mitchell Kramer, vice president at Patricia Seybold Group. “By providing pre-built integrations to a broad choice of technologies free of charge, Demandware and its partners are providing measurable savings to customers that translate into tangible value.”
