Commerce Guys has long been a leader in the development of e-commerce websites using Drupal, with our flagship Drupal Commerce project running on over 60,000 sites. We are now releasing alphas of Commerce 2.x for Drupal 8 every two weeks, with alpha3 up next. Our first production ready beta is scheduled for end of March, but developers are already using our standalone libraries for addressing and currency localization in production. Written to support Commerce 2.x, these libraries gave us a chance to share our knowledge and experience with the broader PHP world.
Over the last several years, we have also developed and launched a second generation Platform-as-a-Service for web applications, Platform.sh. With thousands of customers and an ever expanding list of supported technologies, Platform.sh is now becoming an independent company led by my two partners, Frédéric Plais as CEO and Damien Tournoud as CTO. With the full support of our existing investors, Platform.sh will use this move to grow and adapt to meet the needs of the new development communities it serves.
As the remaining founder, I have acquired Commerce Guys' Drupal Commerce business. I am succeeding Fred to manage the company as its President and will lead it to refocus on the development and support of Drupal Commerce and its community. My co-maintainers, Bojan Živanović and Matt Glaman, will continue to lead our software development and consulting programs respectively, with goals to achieve a Commerce 2.x release candidate by DrupalCon New Orleans (join us! : ) and to offer more strategic consulting and support to companies implementing Drupal Commerce.
Finally, we are adopting a new operating model whereby we deliver full Drupal Commerce projects through exclusive regional affiliates. I'm pleased to announce two launch partners, Actualys of Paris, France and Acro Media of Kelowna, BC, Canada:
- Actualys has acquired Commerce Guys’ France-based services team and clients. They will deliver Drupal Commerce projects as Commerce Guys France and facilitate promotion and development of the software in France, Switzerland, Belgium, and Luxembourg.
- Acro Media has acquired Commerce Guys’ U.S.-based services team and clients. They will deliver Drupal Commerce projects in affiliation with Commerce Guys in the United States and Canada and are dedicating developers and designers to the development of Drupal Commerce (and especially Commerce 2.x).
We expect to deliver strategic consulting services to these and other agencies and to deliver projects in territories not represented above. However, we do plan to engage additional affiliates in strategic territories throughout 2016.
