"The COVID-19 pandemic has rapidly accelerated the need for many organizations to take their selling efforts online. Deploying a strong e-commerce platform is where the rubber hits the road in transacting with your customers through digital channels," said Ben Dickie, research lead, Info-Tech Research Group.
"These platforms have an indispensable array of features, from product catalog and cart management to payment processing to detailed transaction analytics. Our recent Data Quadrant in e-commerce solutions provides a compelling snapshot of the ever-growing list of popular players. Whether you need a B2C-centric platform such as Shopify or a platform that can also handle B2B use cases well such as Magento, this quadrant will help you make the right decision when it comes to enabling great digital commerce experiences for your customers," said Dickie.
What makes the SoftwareReviews Data Quadrant different?
The study involves gathering intelligence on user satisfaction with both product features and the experience with the vendor. Aggregated emotional response ratings are included in the areas of service, negotiation, product impact, conflict resolution, and strategy and innovation to create a powerful indicator of overall user feeling toward the vendor and its product – all from the software users' point of view. SoftwareReviews calls this insight the Net Emotional Footprint.
Salesforce B2B Commerce, with a Net Emotional Footprint of +90, scored top product in many areas, exceeding user expectations in reporting and analytics. Shopify Plus, with a Net Emotional Footprint of +91 was ranked highly for order management and shopping cart management. Fastspring with a Net Emotional Footprint of +78 performed well on microsite management, payment processing, and retargeting capabilities. Salesforce B2C Commerce, with a Net Emotional Footprint of +82, ranked strongly on content management.
In general, eCommerce Platforms software users were most satisfied with payment processing – and were most dissatisfied with microsite management and availability and quality of training.
