Edgecase Named a 2016 Gartner Cool Vendor for Digital Commerce Marketing
Proprietary technology from Edgecase leverages unique intelligence to enrich product data, igniting digital commerce growth
AUSTIN, Texas – April 25, 2016 – Edgecase, the leading provider of product data intelligence and enrichment, today announced that it has been chosen as a 2016 Cool Vendor for Digital Commerce Marketing. This year, Gartner reported on five vendors. According to the report, consumer expectations of compelling shopping experiences are pushing marketers to enhance and evolve their digital commerce strategies and marketing efforts. With a focus on providing unique intelligence and enriched product data that enables retailers to deliver an inspiring shopping experience, Edgecase believes this creates a unique opportunity for tools like its Product Intelligence Platform to make an impact on product discovery.
The Edgecase Product Intelligence Platform improves product findability and relevancy by working with retailers to enrich the product vocabulary and to attribute data that fuels on-site search, faceted navigation, personalization and more. By identifying enriched product attributes that align with how consumers think, Edgecase empowers retailers to speak the language of their customers. Continuous reporting and optimization ensures retailers have the intelligence they need to better understand how shoppers interact with product data at the attribute level, where the most robust insights live and other analytics tools can’t access. Proprietary technology highlights areas of opportunity, brings clarity to decisions that can be made, and assesses the impact of those decisions over time.
Edgecase’s current client portfolio includes key industry leaders including Crate & Barrel, Lancôme, Urban Decay and Sally Beauty.
“We are extremely honored to be included in Gartner’s Cool Vendor report,” said Susanne Bowen, CEO, Edgecase. “Our passion truly is working with our clients to improve product data and ultimately, fuel better shopper experiences. We are very proud of the work we’ve done so far, and believe that being included in a report of this stature is validation that what we do is in fact game-changing and unique in terms of innovative retail technologies. There are more great things to come from Edgecase and this announcement is great momentum for our team.”
