“PetEdge’s selection of CoreMedia LiveContext was based on three factors: The company’s experience with SAP and the SAP Web Channel Experience Management application; its proven success in working with large and mid-sized companies; and its ability to complete projects of any size on time and on budget,” said Trish Keller, vice president of information technology, PetEdge. “CoreMedia LiveContext’s proven ability to build out robust navigation features across our distinct Web Shops and its flexibility and scalability guided our decision, and we look forward to enhancing our Web capabilities as we leverage our partnership with CoreMedia.”

“As more and more customers research purchase options long before they set foot in a brick-and-mortar store, it’s become a priority for Mondou to provide personalized, tailored Web experiences for each customer across all touchpoints,” said David Monpetit, vice president, information technology and finance, Mondou. “Our selection of CoreMedia LiveContext was based on the company’s ability to quickly develop a customized, rapidly deployable solution, and we’re confident that CoreMedia will enable us to provide the online resources our customers are looking for.”

“Independent car washes across the globe depend on SONNY’s and our online store for their livelihood. We selected CoreMedia LiveContext as part of our strategy to better serve our customers,” said Robert Morris, vice president, marketing, SONNY’s. “Our investment in CoreMedia was based on their ability to support the effective cross-selling of our products and services — improving the Web experience for both new and returning customers.”

“As customers increasingly choose multichannel shopping experiences, it is paramount for brands to offer personalized and relevant experiences across touchpoints,” said Jaime Anderson, global marketing director, CRM Web channel & eCommerce solutions, SAP. “CoreMedia’s gold level status is the highest level within the SAP PartnerEdge program and shows our commitment to the partnership and our customers, empowering them to build the profound online experiences on any device.”
