This is not surprising to HCL Commerce, as we see an increasing number of new European clients and a desire from existing clients to grow revenues by catering to the European market with new storefronts tailored for each country. In particular, we see a strong interest in our latest addition to our commerce platform, our marketplace, where customers can invite vendors and partners to display and sell their products through our customers’ HCL Commerce marketplace – with no added investment or integration needed since the marketplace capability is already a part of their HCL Commerce platform. This secures our customers an even bigger relevance to the market as well as a larger product inventory to present to their European customer who is ready to shop more online.
