Adobe and Intershop will be jointly promoting and selling the solution to companies in target markets, including North America, United Kingdom and Germany, with implementation services provided by designated preferred partners. Because the integration utilizes Adobe’s eCommerce Integration Framework, partners will be able to easily customize the solution to meet individual customer requirements.
