Storeplacer Launches Powerful Commerce Application Development Platform with Interactive API Suite and the Industry's First Big Data Infrastructure
CHICAGO --(Business Wire)--
Today, Storeplacer unveiled a next-generation commerce application
development platform that makes it easy for developers to build sites
and apps that consume product content and transactions. Storeplacer's
cloud-based solution provides a rich user interface, automated,
on-demand scalability, a global content delivery network, big data
infrastructure and suite of RESTful APIs. The platform enables
unparalleled agility and speed to market by simplifying development with
best-in-class API architecture, interactive documentation and sample
code. Users save time and money by focusing on creating the frontend
consumer experience instead of worrying about backend infrastructure
Retailers have increasingly found that executing commerce across many
touchpoints is incredibly complex and time consuming. In the last few
years, countless new channels have emerged that enable merchants to
engage and transact with potential customers. Mobile traffic is growing
drastically, yet requires an optimized experience unique for device type
and across each native app ecosystem. Social destinations are also hot
for customer engagement and even commerce, first on Facebook (News - Alert) and now on
Pinterest, Twitter, Instagram and a host of other highly trafficked
sites. As mobile and social channels continue to evolve so will
consumers' discovery and purchase path.
"Merchants are being forced to react faster to changing preferences
while continuing to produce amazing commerce experiences. Consumers
desire to shop anywhere from any device whenever they want and expect a
consistent, omni-channel experience," said CEO Jason Lobel. "Cisco (News - Alert) reports
over 12.5 billion internet-connected devices exist and forecasts over 50
billion will exist by 2020. The infrastructure powering commerce must
transform to keep up with scale and agility required for this
environment. APIs, open platforms and data-driven experiences that
facilitate sophisticated applications will drive the future of commerce.
Until now, the barrier for enabling commerce across many touchpoints
seamlessly was high."
Storeplacer is currently available in a limited beta for developers,
