Gartner’s report assessed 21 eCommerce platform providers to create a thoughtful evaluation of top digital commerce vendors in a growing market. Magento was named a Leader, “based on its increasingly growing and flexible commerce platform that is used in many verticals and by companies of various sizes across many countries.” According to Gartner, leaders are those digital commerce providers who:
- Offer functionality with scope and intelligence
- Provide an e-commerce reach across a wide range of industries and business models
- Supply platforms that are able to scale up to allow extensive transaction capacities and elevated levels of revenue
- Offer sales and support services directly and via a network of partners
- Provide added application capabilities that integrate with their e-commerce platform
Vaimo’s CEO, David Holender, said that “We expected Magento to reach the Leaders’ section in the report, and we look forward to leveraging this success in our business. As one of the top Magento full-service solution providers and Magento’s Global Elite partners, we have worked exclusively with Magento’s platform since day one, and we strive to deliver excellence on the Magento platform to B2B and B2C merchants. For Vaimo, it’s fantastic to see Magento take its rightful leadership place in the the quadrant.”
It’s further described in the report that Leaders as those digital commerce providers who are viable technically, financially, and organizationally, and who constantly demonstrate client satisfaction. Leaders are exemplary in their field and examples to other e-commerce platform vendors.
