Astound Commerce Joins MarketLive 'Implement' Program to Scale Platform Sales Globally

Licenses Commerce Platform Technology to Fill Mid-Market Demand

PETALUMA, CA and SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Jan 12, 2015) - NRF Convention -- MarketLive, the leading Total Commerce technology platform for fast-growing retailers, announced today the selection of Astound Commerce, a leading integrator of e-commerce solutions, to its 'MarketLive Implement' certification program. Under the terms of the agreement, MarketLive will license its award-winning platform while Astound Commerce will promote MarketLive's platform globally to its customer base as well as sell deployment and integration services.

"Astound Commerce is looking to expand its technology platforms practice to serve unmet demand among our mid-market customers, and MarketLive is the undisputed leader in that segment. There is a great need for an affordable but full-featured commerce platform," said Igor Gorin, CEO of Astound Commerce. "MarketLive has mature technology and compelling features at a price that makes sense for mid-market retailers.''

MarketLive offers a scalable, non-proprietary SaaS ecommerce platform, built in Java on the latest technology stack, which scales with retailers as they grow while still maintaining a competitive price. The platform architecture allows new features to be implemented quickly and in many cases the platform becomes less expensive as retailers expand.

"This partnership allows us to scale our sales and presence globally by letting Astound's experienced implementation teams focus on customer deployments and support while we can focus on maintaining and developing our technology," said Ken Burke. "Astound leads many platform selection reviews and brings a proven process and methodology to e-commerce technology deployments."
