Elastic Path Experiences 100% YOY
Growth in EMEA
A Headless Commerce Leader Will Showcase How Enterprise Companies Can Monetize Contextual Buying Experiences at Adobe Summit EMEA
London, United Kingdom (May 3, 2018) – Elastic Path, a world leader in API-Commerce solutions, will showcase how “headless” commerce monetizes personalized, contextual buying experiences for some of Europe’s biggest brands at Adobe Summit EMEA from May 3-4, 2018.
Elastic Path is experiencing exceptional growth as the enterprise commerce platform of choice among top B2B and B2C companies in EMEA. As more companies combine multiple technologies to create ecommerce experiences, the headless technology behind Elastic Path Commerce makes it simple for enterprises to create new shoppable moments in B2C and to streamline and automate B2B commerce processes.
“Headless commerce with content-driven experiences have come of age in EMEA,” said Peter Ford, Vice President EMEA and APAC, Elastic Path. “Our global partnership program has brought in customers from a broad set of industries who see and understand the value of an API-Commerce solution like Elastic Path. As a result, we are experiencing 100 percent year-over-year growth in the region.”
B2C and B2B Contextual Commerce and Content Showcase
At Adobe Summit EMEA, Elastic Path will demonstrate how a combination of technologies and new journey concepts can push boundaries to monetize exceptional, individualized commerce experiences.
B2C scenarios are centered on use cases that a customer would experience while shopping for retail fashion clothing and accessories. Using Elastic Path Commerce and Adobe Experience Manager, part of Adobe Marketing Cloud, the customer is presented with individualized products, services, and special offers based on their buying history and location, as well as external contextual information such as weather and machine learning inputs.
Beyond B2C, an “IoTractor” demonstration highlights how the Internet of Things (IoT) will transform the future of B2B commerce. A toy-scale tractor connected with WiFi and commerce logic showcases how telematics tracks a truck’s engine hours and the commerce system automatically books a maintenance session after 100 hours. The tractor can also detect and reorder any worn parts, automatically adding required items to a cart for maintenance shop review or for auto-checkout.
“The convergence of new customer touchpoints, headless commerce and digital transformation is unleashing a torrent of innovation in B2C and B2B ecommerce,” said Errol Denger, Director of Commerce Strategy, Adobe. “Combining Elastic Path’s flexible enterprise commerce platform with Adobe’s rich experience technology facilitates innovation and provides agility to help brands establish a strategic advantage.”
Elastic Path and Adobe’s collaboration has helped drive innovation for more than 50 shared customers, including the world’s leading cruise vacation brand, global telecommunications and wireless providers and a leading automotive industry disrupter.
