- “In working with many large and fast-growing brands, a major consideration of our customers evaluating commerce platforms is that the technology needs to drive growth not just on the Web, but in all of their key sales channels and emerging media, including mobile devices and social networks,” said Chris Davey, worldwide head of commerce and innovation for SapientNitro. “Having seen the new features in ATG Commerce 10, we are looking forward to working with ATG to help our customers take advantage of a truly holistic commerce solution for cross-channel selling that maximizes sales, profits, and customer loyalty.

- “As a global ATG partner, we are looking forward to working with our customers to tap into the power of ATG Commerce 10 to drive efficiency, quality, and measurable return on investment throughout both their BtoC and BtoB businesses,” said Carl Shamie, lead architect and delivery manager of CGI Group’s North American ATG Practice. “We believe that ATG Commerce 10 will provide a sophisticated software foundation for the next generation of cross-channel, social, and mobile commerce solutions, enabling people to shop, buy, and get service anywhere, anytime, with any device. Further, the new multi-site features will help our customers - in particular our global telecom and retail customers - manage their multiple channels and brands more efficiently.”
- “We have been a proud ATG partner for some time now. With our expertise, combined with the advanced features inherent to ATG Commerce, we empower our customers to leap ahead of their competitors,” said Corey Mellick, president and CEO for RAZOR360. “ATG Commerce 10 will make it even easier for us – and our customers – to create, configure, and implement new sites and applications, lowering the total cost of ownership. We’re looking forward to leveraging the latest version of ATG Commerce to help both enterprise and mid-sized merchants tap into the power of ATG technology with accelerated implementations.”
- “Not only is ATG Commerce 10 the most advanced commerce offering in the market, but the enhancements in management and configurations tools built into the release, along with the introduction of a new reference store application, will absolutely reduce initial and long-term investment costs for our customers,” said Babu Venkatesh, CEO of Professional Access. “These capabilities make it easier for us to work together to launch new sites and new channels rapidly and efficiently.”
