WebLinc Announces Record Revenue Growth at 65% YoY
PHILADELPHIA, PA., September 26, 2016 – Today at Retail’s Digital Summit (Shop.org), WebLinc, the commerce platform provider for the fastest growing online retailers, announced a 65 percent year-over-year increase in revenue and a record-breaking 22 online retailers chose the Workarea Commerce Platform over inflexible enterprise and legacy commerce systems.
Over the past 12 months, 22 retailers and brands launched their commerce sites on the flexible Workarea Commerce Platform, a single-year high for WebLinc. Among the new customers that went live are pure-play retailer Costume SuperCenter with seven sites; booming cosmetics brand Lime Crime, and luxury clothing designer Rachel Roy.
“The record-setting demand by retailers for our commerce software has exceeded all revenue projections for 2016,” said Darren C. Hill, CEO and co-founder of WebLinc. “More than ever, this tells us mid market retailers and brands are in dire need of an easy-to-use platform and with expanding features. Our ongoing success is a result of consistently giving retailers the tools and support needed to provide omnichannel experiences their customers expect.”
In order to keep up with customer demand and rapid pace of innovation, WebLinc has grown its exclusive Solutions Partner Network and invested in its product team. The company’s key expansion priority is to continue the vetting, training and enablement of systems integrators to efficiently migrate retailers to the WebLinc Commerce Platform. To further support systems integrators deploying highly complex B2B and B2C sites for retailers, WebLinc has dedicated veteran staff to fast track development, as well as reduce implementation time and cost.
Hill continued: “We’re thrilled at the response to our recently announced Solutions Partner Network. The quality of the systems integrators and commerce agencies we’re talking with reaffirms the desire of today’s mid market retailers to step away from homegrown and enterprise commerce solutions and seek out freedom and flexibility. We urge retailers to scrutinize the heavy investments and limitations of aging legacy platforms through the eyes of their developers and marketers.”
