Kentico Raises Stakes in E-commerce Marketplace
Announces integration with highly-regarded Ucommerce platform; makes Kentico a more attractive choice for Fortune 500 & Global Fortune 500 Companies
Bedford, New Hampshire, USA, July 12, 2017—Kentico Software, a fast-growing CMS vendor with offices in Europe, Asia-Pacific, and North America, today announced an integration between its widely-used Enterprise Marketing Solution (EMS) and Content Management Solution (CMS) and Ucommerce, the market’s most powerful .NET-based commerce platform. The integration will coincide with the introduction of Kentico 11, scheduled for release in November 2017.
“Up to now, all of Kentico’s software has been developed internally,” explained Kentico Founder and CEO Petr Palas. “However, there are times when a company has to make bold moves to advance the business and at the same time delight customers. This is one of those times.”
Palas continued, “While Kentico’s native E-commerce capabilities are more than sufficient for small, medium-size, and even larger businesses, we recognized that some corporations, particularly multi-nationals, have very specialized needs. So rather than re-invent the wheel, we opted to partner with Ucommerce, a company that is well-known and highly regarded in this space. This collaboration with Ucommerce gives Kentico users another option – it’s not a replacement for our native E-commerce solution.”
“We are delighted to work with Kentico,” added Søren Spelling Lund, Founder and CEO of Ucommerce. "They are aggressively advancing the digital experience and by adding our capabilities to theirs, we are creating a wonderful opportunity for customers to experience the value of working with content and commerce in a unified platform.” Lund continued, “We saw an opportunity to complement and round out Kentico’s E-commerce capabilities at the high end. It’s a win-win, a good move for both companies.”
