Nextopia Partners With ChannelAdvisor to Deliver Innovative Ecommerce Site Search to Premium Stores Retailers

DURHAM, NORTH CAROLINA--(Marketwire - May 3, 2010) - (ChannelAdvisor Catalyst Conference)

Nextopia has partnered with ecommerce channel management solutions provider ChannelAdvisor to deliver site search innovation to ChannelAdvisor's retailing community.

The partnership's initial efforts have already customized Nextopia's flagship eComm|Search module for immediate deployment to ecommerce retailers using ChannelAdvisor's "Premium Stores" application. The customized eComm|Search module is easy to integrate with the Premium Stores database, providing powerful search and merchandising capabilities for ChannelAdvisor retailers such as Speed Unlimited Performance Center, Plumbingoverstock.com and ShoptheFinest.com.

"After working with ChannelAdvisor clients in the past year on a number eComm|Search integration projects, we're excited to formally collaborate with ChannelAdvisor and the hundreds of retailers that are using Premium Stores to thrive online," added Nextopia CEO Sanjay Arora. "We've created a code base and refined an implementation process that will update a retailer's production server with the absolute latest site search functionality and benefits in just 3-5 days."

"Nextopia offers autosuggest, advanced filtering and powerful search, all of which are essential elements of a great shopping experience," said ChannelAdvisor Director of Product Management Link Walls. "We're proud to offer Nextopia as an option to ChannelAdvisor customers."

For Speed Unlimited Performance Center, an online retailer of high performance auto and truck parts, the integration has increased site conversion and visitor revenue.

"After reading about Nextopia in some ChannelAdvisor forums I decided to give them a call and am glad I did," noted George Mandes, General Manager, Speed Unlimited Performance Center. "The implementation was quick and the Nextopia search and navigation is fast, customizable and just plain great on our site. Nextopia took our site to the next level."
