MarketLive Recognized for Its Global B2C Commerce Suite in Independent Research Study

PETALUMA, CA--(Marketwired - Jan 19, 2015) - MarketLive, the leading Total Commerce technology platform for fast-growing retailers, announced today that its global commerce suite has been recognized by Forrester Research in its most recent analysis of commerce vendors.

The just-released research study, entitled The Forrester Wave™: B2C Commerce Suite Q1 2015, evaluated the leading 11 vendors of enterprise-class suites, as determined by selection criteria including revenues, mindshare and market share. The report cites MarketLive's positive momentum:

"...with the return of founder Ken Burke to the helm, things are looking up for MarketLive. The core commerce engine is effective with a surprisingly robust feature set and the firm has a positive client win momentum. MarketLive is having success closing larger enterprise level deals, bringing it upmarket from its previous focus on SMB and midmarket online retailers. In support of this goal, MarketLive has been maturing the platform by migrating its cloud infrastructure over to Amazon Web Services (AWS) and focusing on improving its upgrade processes."

The report also points out that MarketLive has seen strong client growth and fills a gap in the market between SMB solutions and the larger enterprise vendors.

"We're always pleased when a top-tier analyst firm like Forrester recognizes what we feel is MarketLive's significant contribution to the commerce sector," said Ken Burke, founder and CEO of MarketLive Inc. "Among other things, we believe the report validates our market focus and the tremendous investments we've made in our technology and in servicing our customers."

Forrester Research forecasts the market for commerce suite technology to almost double in size in the next five years from $1.2 billion in 2014 to $2.1 billion in the US alone by 2019.
