MarketLive and Sundance Named Joint Winners of International Online Retail Award

PETALUMA, CA and SALT LAKE CITY, UT--(Marketwired - Sep 30, 2014) - MarketLive, the leading Total Commerce platform for high-growth merchants, and Sundance Catalog, the lifestyle retailer founded in 1969 by actor Robert Redford, were selected joint winners of the International 2014 Online Retail Awards. The pair were awarded first place prize for outstanding website in the Fashion and Clothing category.

The Online Retail Awards (ORA) is an international business award that seeks examples of retailers' web, mobile and tablet sites and advances in digital stores that offer exceptional online shopping experiences. The Online Retail Awards' international award ceremony was held in Royal Garden Hotel in Kensington, London.

"Sundance turns 25 years old this year, and our business has evolved from an offline catalog in the early days to a full multi-channel e-commerce operation," said Rick Turek, Director, Information Systems at Sundance. "MarketLive's technology platform lets us offer shoppers an online experience that has the same high touch quality of thumbing through our catalog and exploring new products, but also gives us the latest in cross channel optimization capabilities. I think that ability to provide an exceptional customer experience regardless of channel is what the judges saw in our award entry."

"MarketLive and Sundance have an amazing partnership that has been in place more than a decade," said Ken Burke, founder and CEO of MarketLive, Inc. "They inspired us with the authenticity and integrity of their brand, showcased in fashion and clothing collections, and encouraged us to finesse that spirit into the website. We're very pleased with the results, and obviously the award judges were, too."
