(Gawkwire) – Promet Source, a web & mobile development firm, announces a strategic partnership with Commerce Guys, the experts in Drupal Commerce. The partnership enables both firms to augment services available to clients. Promet Source aligns with partners to deliver a complete web and mobile development package to clients. While Promet has recognized expertise in Drupal custom development, web migrations, integrations, and support & maintenance, they look to partners to boost service offerings to include a broader spectrum of professional services.
Commerce Guys is the software company behind Drupal Commerce, a flexible solution for modern eCommerce. Thousands of digital retailers/merchants choose Drupal Commerce each month for their eCommerce platform. Their proven expertise has helped provide online merchants with powerful, responsive, and innovative eCommerce software.
“Combining our Drupal expertise together with Commerce Guys gives companies seamless access to eCommerce consulting, eCommerce hosting, custom development and integration through one channel,” said Andrew Kucharski, Promet Source President. “Our clients can utilize Promet for our expertise in developing sites with interaction, 3rd party integrations, custom functionality and now we can give access to the best tools/services of digital commerce. The result of this partnership will be easily manageable and profitable Drupal websites for a wide array of clients.”
A recent report by Forrester Research, Inc entitled "US Cross-Channel Retail Forecast, 2012 To 2017" predicted that by 2017, 60% of all U.S. retail sales will involve the Internet in some way, either as a direct eCommerce transaction or as part of a shopper’s research on a laptop or mobile device. In 2012, 46% of total U.S. retail sales were either transacted directly or influenced by Internet research, the study reported. Meanwhile, IBIS World research forecasts an 8.6% per year increase in online revenues over the next five years.
With such growth in eCommerce, websites will need stronger development in terms of functionality, commerce, ease-of-use and performance. Thus, it is a natural step that two technical powerhouses (Commerce Guys and Promet Source) partner together to support this level of growth.
“Our goal for our strategic partnership with Promet Source is to work closely together to provide a ‘dream team’ of technical and commerce expertise for executing optimal web projects,” said Candace Chapman, Director of Marketing, Commerce Guys.
