VTEX, the fastest-growing e-commerce platform in the world, has been named a “visionary” in Gartner’s August 2020 Magic Quadrant for Digital Commerce. Gartner’s annual report is a must-read for B2B and B2C vendors looking to adopt digital commerce platforms. Having entered the quadrant in 2017 as a “niche” player, VTEX has now been promoted to the “visionary” rank. The Magic Quadrant analyses players according to their ability to execute and completeness of vision.
“We’re proud of the modern, flexible and scalable e-commerce and marketplace solutions we bring to VTEX customers, so for us, it is thrilling to be recognised by Gartner as a visionary in our space,” said Amit Shah, Chief Strategy Officer and U.S. General Manager at VTEX. In the last year, VTEX has grown its customer base, further enhanced its offering, and secured $140 million to fund expansion into North America, Europe and Asia.
The Brazilian platform was the first Latin American software to be referenced in the quadrant, which names the top 15 players worldwide, placing them as challengers, niche players, visionaries and leaders. VTEX is now aiming at the top leaders’ quadrant, with the heavyweights SAP, Adobe, Oracle and Salesforce.
Digital revenue up and away
Online spending hit $82.5 billion in May, up 77% from the previous year, according to an Adobe Analytics report. With the COVID-19 pandemics forcing businesses to open new spaces online, Gartner predicts that digital transformation will bring the very much anticipated good news: “By 2023, organisations that have operated enterprise marketplaces for more than one year will see at least a 10% increase in digital revenue.”
Registering a sharp growth, VTEX is the first and only solution with fully integrated commerce, marketplace and order management, delivering the fastest time-to-revenue and no upgrades. Over 3,000 customers in 40 countries use VTEX to accelerate and transform their commerce, including Sony, L´Oréal, Nestlé, Coca-Cola, Pizza Hut, Walmart and Whirlpool.
“Partnering with VTEX has simplified our online ordering process and expanded our contactless pick-up and delivery, giving us the agility and flexibility to not only keep customers at the heart of everything we do, but also do it safely and effectively in unprecedented times,” said France Roy, Global Head of Engineering at the multinational drink company AB InBev.
Another strong differentiator is the fact that the platform increases conversion rates with an advanced search engine that uses Artificial Intelligence to understand shopper intent and return relevant search results. It also offers highly personalised promotions and experiences, frictionless transactions, subscription business model and rapid service delivery.
