Cactus Commerce Announces CommerceLive Solution


Las Vegas – September 22, 2009 – Cactus Commerce is pleased to announce the launch of CommerceLive - the next evolution in e-commerce. CommerceLive is a B2C, cross channel solution that delivers pre-packaged advantages with customer-specific solution flexibility.

Recognizing that one solution does not fit all, CommerceLive bridges the gap that exists today between SAAS and custom e-commerce platforms. “We’ve deployed e-commerce solutions for over 12 years. And one thing that we’ve learned time and time again is that our customers want to create unique e-commerce experiences. Simply put, e-commerce is not a one-size-fits-all solution,” explains Cactus Commerce CEO Tony Marinelli.

As resource constraints and budgets often impact e-commerce deployments, CommerceLive gives customers the power to choose an On Premise or On Demand business model and the ability to switch between models when appropriate for the customer. Built upon Microsoft technologies, including Microsoft Commerce Server 2009 and Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007, CommerceLive offers the core e-commerce functionality necessary for businesses to get online quickly with a differentiated offering that utilizes client-specific extensions and configurable components. Retailers and CPGs can use this cross channel enabled solution to deliver online shopping experiences that excite, attract and engage customers. CommerceLive provides social commerce support to increase customer loyalty and enable strong, online communities.

“We chose Cactus and its CommerceLive solution to help us reach out and create more meaningful connections with our online customers. With this choice we are going to be able to create an online community that engages customers in their passion for our products. As we prepare to launch our new site, our merchandisers have been overwhelmed by the capability to quickly and easily update site content. This was a key element in our vendor selection.” states Nova Scotia Liquor Corporation, VP of Communications Rick Perkins.

“While the Internet continues to offer tremendous growth opportunities for retailers to better connect consumers with their brand, their products and other shoppers, many have struggled with delivering a consistent and engaging experience across all sales channels,” said David Gruehn, Microsoft’s U.S. retail industry solutions director. “The new CommerceLive solution helps retailers better manage and integrate their online platforms to their enterprise technology strategies so they can deliver a valuable, seamless experience. Because CommerceLive doesn’t lock companies into a feature set or deployment model, the solution enables retailers to more easily evolve and expand their websites to address market changes and customer demands.”
