hybris, the top-rated provider of omni-channel commerce software, has announced a new channel partnership agreement with Foresite, a full service agency which specialises in e-commerce and CMS solutions and creates end-to-end digital strategies for its clients from customer engagement to online competitor analysis and digital marketing.
The new agreement allows hybris to further extend its influence in the B2C sector, an area in which Foresite has gained considerable market share working for well-known brands including Office Shoes, the British Heart Foundation and the BBC. For Foresite the relationship will extend its capabilities, particularly with clients who are looking for proven, scalable e-commerce platforms that will support them through expansion, not just in the UK but overseas.
Barnaby Moffat, Digital Strategy Director at Foresite, said: “Our focus is on providing customers with every aspect of their e-commerce roll-out and helping them to achieve their business aims. We understand the importance of the user experience, the back office systems and the technology that brings all of this together, and for us this is where hybris fits in – providing us with a platform which is truly enterprise-enabled, and will suit the larger customers with whom we are increasingly working.”
Foresite, which was established in 1997, works with a range of vendor partners and specialises in delivering e-commerce packages that suit individual requirements, drawing on its expertise to integrate solutions with services and support up and down the stack.
Frank Schoutissen, Vice President Channel at hybris, said: “Both hybris and Foresite have become key players in the B2C sector over the last few years, and it is to both our advantage to combine knowledge, expertise and contacts by working in partnership. Foresite has a vast knowledge of the technical and commercial requirements of customers, and we look forward to supporting this as we move forward together.”
Foresite has been appointed as a hybris Implementation Partner and will focus on UK-based customers.
