"SkillNet has not only raised the bar in regards to quality and delivery, but is reaffirming our joint commitment to our customers by allowing them to create a superior site experience" - John Andrews, VP, Endeca
Sunnyvale, CA (PRWEB) January 13, 2010
SkillNet, a leading provider of IT consulting services and solutions to the retail market, today announced that it has received the "Endeca Certified Consulting Partner" accreditation. This honor represents the highest level of competence and expertise of Endeca's Information Access Platform, and is awarded to partner companies that have the requisite number of trained consultants. SkillNet currently has double the amount of consultants needed for gold accreditation; with more certifications scheduled for later this year.
With five years of experience and more than 25 successful engagements in search and guided navigation projects, SkillNet has proved its mettle as a cutting edge technology solutions enabler. "We believe Information Access including search and related technologies are the new frontier in technology. Implementing an Endeca search application will give our clients a competitive advantage by being able to access and use data in ways they could not before, as well as provide their customers a unique and engaging online experience" says Praveen Pahwa, VP eCommerce at SkillNet.
"Our customers are looking for both state-of-the-art products such as the Endeca Information Access Platform, as well as reliable long-term systems implementers and integrators like SkillNet to solve specific high-ROI business problems with lower cost-of-ownership, faster time-to-results, and greater value than other alternatives," said John Andrews, vice president, solutions marketing and product management at Endeca. "By extending their knowledge of the Endeca Information Access Platform, SkillNet has not only raised the bar in regards to quality and delivery, but is reaffirming our joint commitment to our customers by allowing them to create a superior site experience."
The accreditation has jump-started SkillNet's plans for 2010 to expand its already substantive Internet technology practice by getting more of its consultants trained and certified in related domains. In the last year alone, SkillNet has seen a surge in the adoption of state-of-the-art eCommerce technologies. In December 2009, SkillNet helped a men's apparel retailer achieve better conversions from browsers to buyers online. In September 2009, SkillNet enabled a web analytics trendsetter company achieve online transparency. The web analytics firm had Content, Unorganized; in the form of blogs, documents and product data-sheets on various mediums. This was undermining the sales messages, resulting in prospects turning away from the website unenlightened, and tech users getting frustrated with lack of ready-help. SkillNet search-energized the data and brought transparency to the customer-engagement process.
In addition, the company will reach out to the retail market including existing clients to get them engaged in search and guided navigation, SEO and Web 2.0 best practices.
