Digital Marketing and Ecommerce Solution Provider's Latest Business Efforts Catapult Its Sales and Drive Top-End Business Results

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwired - Mar 27, 2014) - EPiServer, a global software provider for innovative ecommerce and digital marketing solutions, begins 2014 with strong overall growth in innovation, business development and customer growth. In 2013 the company increased its cloud sales by 117 percent and its ecommerce sales by 55 percent. The company also expanded its solution footprint through major platform releases and increased the pace of innovation through strategic acquisitions like that of search provider Euroling, providing customers with the ability to deliver outstanding experiences online and to create top-end business results.

"As we head into our 20th year of business, our latest metrics highlight that EPiServer is largely in-tune with changing dynamics in the market," said Martin Henricson, CEO at EPiServer. "In today's world, marketers need to be more agile than ever to keep up with the demands of the connected consumer. It's great to see that in today's increasingly competitive marketplace, where acting with Internet speed is a 'standard', EPiServer has increased its compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) 27 percent over the last nine years. We believe that figure points to our ability to adapt and to meet our customers' shifting needs."

The company, which has grown and expanded its partner network to more than 715 industry leaders over the last year, has committed to continue its efforts to support the eco-system with the opening of a Tech Center in Los Angeles, CA. The Tech Center will support partners and customers by providing onboarding core expertise, thereby expanding global support and giving customers a faster time to market.

EPiServer will also continue to provide its customers and partners with everything needed to create and manage a sophisticated online presence and drive multichannel digital campaigns, while also providing robust ecommerce capabilities. Clients will be able to track and ultimately leverage behavioral data and analytics to enable intelligent optimization of all digital interactions. By combining its proven web operations, cloud assets and hosting capabilities in Everweb, EPiServer is poised to become a one-stop shop for those looking for scalable leading edge digital solutions in marketing and ecommerce. 

"2013 was a great year for the company and 2014 is on track to be just as exciting -- if not more," said Marty Leamy, President at EPiServer US. "Through the latest platform roll outs, a strong understanding of the industry and what our customers need, and the onboarding of new brand customers like Moleskine and B2B ecommerce customers like Reyes Holdings, we have been able to set ourselves up to continue increasing market share in the United States. We look forward to what 2014 will bring for our organization and will continue to build momentum around our initiatives throughout the year."
