Commerce Guys and SeeD form Strategic Relationship around Drupal Commerce and Platform.sh Hosting
Ann Arbor, Michigan & Bogota, Colombia -- February 10, 2015 -- For immediate release
Commerce Guys and SeeD announce a strategic relationship to increase the adoption of Drupal Commerce in South America. The partnership will gain traction in the eCommerce market with the best software for the Drupal CMS and the best hosting platform for Continuous Delivery.
The companies are combining efforts in response to growing customer demand for content-driven commerce sites. This trend extends beyond traditional eCommerce players to a wide variety of nontraditional commerce sites requiring transactions such as digital downloads, reservations, private content and fine payments. The combination of Drupal and Drupal Commerce software is highly suited to these types of needs for sites of all sizes.
Latin America is growing, with a population of around 588 million and an escalating digital market. Bogota, Colombia, was chosen to host the first DrupalCon in Latin America. SeeD will partner at the event with Commerce Guys; the biggest player in Drupal for eCommerce. Both companies will be showcasing a new Managed Commerce offer and Platform.sh, the continuous delivery cloud built by Commerce Guys.
SeeD has adopted the Platform.sh development and hosting solution for internal Commerce projects, and is recommending it to their clients having adopted Drupal Commerce.
“At SeeD, we always strive to be at the forefront of what is happening in the Drupal ecosystem. We collaborate with the most knowledgeable companies for each specialty of the business. This enables us to provide our customers with the best possible options available in the Drupal market.” said Jairo Pinzon, general manager for SeeD. “Now E-Commerce companies interested in developing state-of-the-art sites can benefit from this partnership in Latin America. We will be ready to offer the best support possible in order to reach goals and business objectives.”
"Having the opportunity to partner with a fantastic Drupal Shop such as SeeD is very exciting for us as a company,” said Justin Williams, Director of Sales for Commerce Guys. “The Latin American Drupal Community has been maturing over time, and the ecosystem now has all the elements needed to succeed in increasing Drupal adoption. Together, we are focused on bringing exceptional value to our customers through the powerful combination of Drupal, Drupal Commerce and Platform.sh. Partnering with SeeD provides a powerful platform to connect with the people of Latin America in a more meaningful way".
