New York, NY and San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) April 25, 2012
Axle Digital firmly established its position as a major player in the rapidly growing social/mobile solutions market today when it announced that is has acquired the assets of Sausalito-based Adgregate Markets. A TechCrunch50 finalist and winner of the OnMedia 100 award for three years running, Adgregate was frequently cited as a trailblazer, investing millions in the development of the industry’s first comprehensive, social and mobile network enabled multi-channel platform for hosting robust distributed commerce solutions. In partnership with leading security providers McAfee, Symantec and TRUSTe, Adgregate introduced large retailers such as Old Navy, Banana Republic, Nordstrom and GameStop to the potential of social commerce.
The acquisition of Adgregate, best known for its highly integrated ShopFans storefront solution for Facebook, further accelerates Axle Digital’s emergence as key provider of the services companies need to drive multi-dimensional ecommerce initiatives. Drawing on the combined strengths of social and mobile communities, Axle effectively delivers engaging commerce opportunities across a wide range of consumer touchpoints, including Facebook, mobile, tablet, Internet TV, in-store, etc.
“In a world where consumers are interacting with brands across multiple devices, it’s becoming increasingly clear that the success or failure of those brands will be determined by how well the brand engages with consumers across numerous devices,” commented Christopher Williams, Axle’s Chairman. “Talking about multi-touchpoint engagement is one thing, making it happen is another...Axle Digital makes it happen.”
With this acquisition Axle is gaining both a strong foothold in the market and innovative technology that will enhance the company’s already robust mobile and social commerce platforms. "We are continually expanding our platform to meet the needs of our clients, enabling them to effectively develop and launch fully integrated, feature-rich, consumer shopping experiences across all consumer touchpoints,” said Aaron Knoll, Axle’s Chief Technology Officer. Axle expects to announce the launch of several commerce solutions with top retailers in the coming months.
