“Retailers are beginning to understand that in order to serve today’s connected consumer, content and data need to flow effortlessly across all of the touchpoints their customers interact with; whether in-stores, on mobile devices, or through social networks like Facebook,” notes Christopher Williams, Axle’s Chairman. “Axle Digital’s platform enables that effortless flow and finally allows marketers to develop the fully integrated, feature rich, shopping experiences that their customers demand.” Axle’s multi-touchpoint Social Commerce Platform is designed to position brands in front of customers anytime, anywhere and leverage interactions across multiple channels to further enhance the customer purchase journey.
“I am thrilled to join the Axle group as it leads the charge into this new era of multi-channel digital commerce, which is expected to grow to over $50 Billion by 2015,” said Mulry. “Axle’s Platform was constructed in response to this paradigm shift towards distributed commerce and provides the most comprehensive product offering in the space. Retailers are in desperate need of a solution to manage this ever expanding environment and I couldn't be more excited to play a primary role in the growth of such a progressive organization providing that solution,” Mulry concluded.
