"We're very excited to be partnering with Group FMG because it provides multiple benefits, beginning with expanding our Pan-European footprint, enabling us to provide local support for clients throughout Europe. It also enables us to support more clients in the US and Canada, and last, but certainly not least, this partnership means that we can leverage Group FMG's world-class Web designers, creative and content specialists for our client engagements.
"Partners must have proven track records and be considered leaders in their space," continues Fabrizzi. "Group FMG/Pod1's reputation speaks for itself through their impressive client list and extensive industry accolades, including placement in the Top 100 Design Groups and ranking within the top 100 on the NMA list, among a long list of awards."
Group FMG/Pod1 will be an SI for Jagged Peak's EDGE™ eCommerce platform, which is a cloud-based, enterprise-scale platform that offers real-time order visibility throughout the entire order life cycle across multiple business units, distribution channels and trading partners. This capability enables merchants to offer a "buy anywhere, fulfill anywhere, return anywhere" omnichannel experience to their customers. On the front end, EDGE enables clients to deploy world-class eCommerce web and mobile stores with advanced features that deliver higher conversion, average order value and repurchase frequency. On the back end, EDGE is a powerful omnichannel order management system that aggregates orders from multiple sources for distribution in real time to one or multiple fulfillment locations, including retail stores, drop shippers, 3PLs and the client's own warehouses.
"Most ecommerce platforms focus on front-end order configuration, relying on back-end ERP systems to process orders and integrate to inventory and financial systems," says Dilip Keshu, CEO, Group FMG. "Jagged Peak is ahead of many eCommerce players when it comes to supporting the demand and supply chains of an eCommerce lifecycle—taking an order to processing it through pick, pack, ship and trace. We are pleased to now be able to offer this order management capability to our clients."
