Attend a free webinar with Independent Research Analyst, Sucharita Mulpuru and Ixtens Co-Founder Eugene Nikiforov as they discuss the emerging marketplace trends and show retailers how they too can set up their own third-party supplier marketplace. All attendees will also receive a complimentary Forrester Report.



"Retailers that compete with Amazon have come to discover that offering marketplaces on their own sites is critical to driving margins and remaining competitive on the prices and the shipping fees of the items they do stock in inventory."

Ixtens, a leader in eCommerce Software-as-a-Service connectivity and automation solutions, will host an interactive webinar for eCommerce leaders, titled “The Changing Dynamics of Retail – Multi-Supplier Marketplaces.”

The webinar will feature a presentation from special guest speaker, Forrester Research analyst Sucharita Mulpuru and will include additional findings from her January 2011 report, “Five Retail eCommerce Trends to Watch in 2011.” In her report, Sucharita showed us that one of the most significant facts regarding eCommerce is how Amazon is growing faster than the rest of the eCommerce industry – in particular with its drop-ship model where Amazon makes sales without holding inventory or managing shipments.

Webinar attendees will hear a discussion covering the following timely trends:

  •     The Amazon marketplace model
  •     What is an online marketplace
  •     The challenges and complexities of establishing a multi-supplier marketplace, complete with business case studies
  •     Marketplaces for Retailers vs.Media Companies
  •     Difference between the affiliate and drop-shipper model

All attendees will also receive a complimentary copy of Forrester’s “Five eCommerce Trends to Watch in 2011” report
