Vendor's Description
Deliver the experience your customers demand and the revenue growth you need by bringing enterprise-grade commerce capabilities to the Sitecore® Experience Platform™ (XP).

Powerful framework for contextualized commerce. Ideal for B2C, B2B, and B2X brands selling online, Sitecore® Commerce uses everything you know about your customers to deliver shopping experiences that are shaped by their interaction history and context, transforming prospects into lifelong fans. Owning the experience for each unique customer, from awareness to advocacy and from one purchase to the next—that’s how you grow revenue today.

Features and benefits:

- Product information, web content, and digital marketing come together to drive valuable, personalized shopping experiences throughout the customer lifecycle.

- Create and edit personalized shopping experiences. The web-based and touch-enabled dashboard lets you create rich personalized experiences with content, product pages, search, email, and mobile. Edit products and content in the context of the device they are intended for, while previewing how different audiences will see different experiences—a first for merchandisers.

- Test everything, optimize everything. Every new or edited experience is automatically tested against previous versions, similar content, and promotions. Test checkout, shipping options, content, and then optimize, test, and repeat. Audiences and segments can also be optimized for engagement—you just review and approve them. Content, promotion, and merchandising recommendations are paired with automated and manual segments of customers for a best match.

- Know every customer. Personalize every customer’s experience by adapting to their needs in context. The Experience Database captures preferences, behavior, and persona matches for every single customer, and every individual experience. A customer’s Experience Profile captures all commerce behavior such as carts, orders, and search criteria, and when combined with other digital behavior, makes for a powerful experience.

- Commerce experience management in the cloud. Sitecore Commerce can run on Azure and with Sitecore XP and Sitecore® Web Experience Manager Cloud Editions, which removes an enormous amount of setup and configuration and configuration yet delivers all the same value as Sitecore XP on Azure—you sign up and immediately start developing your solution.
