Dayton, OH (Vocus) May 5, 2010
Sogeti, a leading international provider of professional IT services, announced today that it has expanded its e-Commerce capabilities by opening a new e-Commerce Business Unit (eCBU). The unit will be based in Columbus, OH, which currently houses over 250 IT professionals and has served the Columbus market for over 25 years.
The eCBU will primarily concentrate on helping clients plan, implement and manage their online business strategies. The unit features deep expertise in e-Commerce applications including content and product management systems, search, cross-channel marketing, social media and search engine optimization (SEO). The unit is designed to provide clients with strategic direction and vision for optimal usability and to help them maximize revenue growth.
In addition, the center will feature a Mobile Solutions Lab with experts specifically focused on helping clients best leverage mobile technologies, such as the iPhone, iPad, Blackberry and other mobile devices, allowing them to further reinforce branding and increase customer loyalty.
The unit will be led by Bob LeRoy, Sogeti’s Vice President of IBM and Open Solutions. “The eCBU is an important expansion—for Sogeti and for clients”, explains LeRoy. “With a dedicated team of experts centrally located in Ohio, clients will benefit from their shared knowledge and extensive experience with a full suite of e-commerce technologies including IBM, Endeca, Exact Target, Omniture and others.”
The eCBU provides clients with added flexibility, allowing services and solutions to be delivered on-site at the client’s location, at the e-Commerce Business Unit in Columbus and from Sogeti’s global delivery centers around the world. This unique delivery model allows clients to best meet their business needs.
“Sogeti's continued commitment to the WebSphere Commerce customer centric platform is reinforced by the launch of their new e-Commerce Business Unit,” said John Koepsel, sales executive, for WebSphere Commerce Americas. “This also underscores their focus on assisting IBM in delivering Smarter Commerce for our clients."
