MINNEAPOLIS, MN--(Marketwired - Oct 7, 2013) - Insite Software, a leading provider of B2B eCommerce platforms and shipping solutions approaching 1000 customers worldwide, today announced it has been recognized by Forrester Research, Inc., as a strong performer in the inaugural Forrester Wave™: B2B Commerce Suites, Q4 2013.
Insite Software was among a select group of companies that Forrester invited to participate in the Forrester Wave report. In the evaluation, Forrester reviewed the strengths and weaknesses of Insite among B2B ecommerce providers in regards to 66 criteria. Participants were evaluated across multiple areas, including scalability and caching, multisite management, order management, and integration -- including REST-based commerce APIs, SOAP web services, Java APIs, and Java Message Service (JMS) messaging.
According to Forrester, "Insite Software has a unique position in the market, in that it is solely focused on B2B eCommerce. This alone pushes its market presence score in the Forrester Wave up to match much bigger players -- focus is always a good thing. The company is rapidly maturing with recent capital investment and a new CEO at the helm. Furthermore, Insite has an impressive customer install base and has been recently competing with and, in some cases, winning deals against larger competitors. The solution is .NET-based, which is a welcome differentiator from this Java-dominated space, and can be deployed in both hosted and on-premise models."
The Forrester Wave is an objective methodology that evaluates vendors on current offering, strategy and market presence conditions. The report provides detailed analysis of vendors' products and services based on transparent criteria that allows clients to easily compare products and develop custom shortlists according to their own requirements.
"We believe this Forrester Wave report sends a loud and clear message that B2B eCommerce has arrived, and you need to align your business to take advantage of the opportunity," said Brian Strojny, founder & director of Insite Software. "B2B eCommerce is vastly different and more complex than B2C, requiring a purpose-built platform. Unlike other vendors that are trying to retrofit their B2C platform offering to the unique needs of manufacturers and distributors, Insite is built to go from engagement to go live within a shorter timeframe and with a very robust set of B2B capabilities."
InsiteCommerce is the leading B2B eCommerce platform for enterprise organizations in manufacturing and distribution. Designed to slash time, efforts and costs for B2B eCommerce, InsiteCommerce provides deep integration within a wide variety of ERP, CRM, and CMS systems, and is built upon best practices of successful web strategies, including website design, user experience, advanced site search, SEO, merchandising, content management, and full integration to back-end systems.
