Jena, Germany, 27 March 2017 – Intershop, the largest independent technology vendor for omni-channel commerce solutions, has been cited as a Leader in B2B commerce suites in a report published by renowned industry analyst firm Forrester Research, Inc. The report, “The Forrester Wave™: B2B Commerce Suites, Q1 2017” ranks Intershop as number two in current offering, and tied for number one in solution architecture category.

The report cites that “Intershop is a best fit for brand manufacturers that have complex channel support requirements, need especially well-developed commerce feature functionality, and are looking for flexibility on global pricing and licensing.”

The new Intershop Order Management System is also noted by the report; the strong core commerce capabilities of the Intershop Commerce Suite including promotions, channel management, and customization features, as well as its strong technical roadmap and deep partner ecosystem.

As organizations in the B2B sector are building out increasingly sophisticated digital commerce channels, they are able to expand outside their traditional markets, as the recent Intershop research report, “Taking the fast track into the digital future of B2B commerce” shows. However, the Intershop study also highlighted that organizations need to have the right technological infrastructure in place to fully leverage the potential of digitalization.

Jochen Wiechen, CEO at Intershop commented: “A strong commerce platform can help companies master the digital transformation of both their commerce and customer relationship processes. We pride ourselves in understanding what the market needs and developing a feature-reach platform that flexibly meets our customers’ requirements, whether they are only just starting to build their commerce channel, or expanding it across borders. We are delighted that Intershop is recognized as a leader in the B2B commerce market.”
