  • What is driving this momentum? Every customer’s eCommerce needs are different, so of course their reasons for choosing Magento are different. But we find a few common themes in the decision process of many of our customers. In our customer’s own words the theme we hear the most often is the Flexibility of the Magento Enterprise Platform along with its ability to scale with their business and the tremendous value Magento Enterprise Edition delivers from its extensive native feature set and ability to be deployed quickly.

  • Flexibility to Create Rich, Differentiated Consumer Experiences Harper’s Bazaar has created content to commerce site on Magento Enterprise Edition – creating an exciting consumer experience tied to their flagship online media experience.ChallengeAs America’s first fashion magazine, Harper’s BAZAAR is no stranger to being an industry pioneer; naturally, they decided to venture into the emerging content-to-commerce market with their eCommerce concept ShopBAZAAR. As a publishing business, Harper’s BAZAAR had many unique needs to address:They required the ability to offer products from many different designers in one unified shopping cart. The experience had to be seamless between viewing an item in the print or digital magazine and purchasing. The store had to stay grounded in BAZAAR’s innovative roots while propelling it into the future of fashion publishing.SolutionOnly Magento Enterprise Edition had what they needed to accomplish these goals: Scalability to handle growing traffic The most compelling total cost of ownership on the market the Features they needed: - Drop shipping for individual specialty designers - Configurable product listings - Federated search and filtering - The ability to support promotionsResultsThis fashion icon is very happy with the results… the amount of traffic coming to the site doubled within the first few months of launch and they have also seen a significant uptake in media sales. The success of ShopBAZAAR has opened the door to expand the idea to other publications in the Hearst family and has set a standard in the emerging world of content-to-commerce retail in the publishing industry.
  • After detailed evaluation, Magento Commerce was selected as global cart for its robust and flexible platform - offering powerful marketing tools out-of-the-box and an open core architecture that reduces the cost of customization and accelerates deployments in multiple markets.Rosetta Stone implemented a phased, quick fire, sequential roll out across 8 strategic regions beginning with the US, followed by UK, France, Italy, Spain, Rest ofEurope and finally APAC (Japan & Korea) in an exercise that spanned 8 months.The engagement navigated complex back end integrations to Oracle ERP, country specific Tax Services, License Management Systems, AVS & AMS, Global Payment Gateways, Analytics suite and Monitoring systems.UNIQUE FEATURES• Liferay CMS implementation & integration with Magento commerce• Single Customer View (SCV – Entailing import-export of product, customer & purchase info)• Multi-Currency, multi-channel price lists• Stacked Promotions with Catalog discounts• Product Review & Rating systems Integrated• Payment plans & subscription featuresThe results have been impressive: • 30% enterprise revenues now flowing thru Magento Cart, expected increase to 50%• 25% of savings in support costs arising from standardized technology platforms• >5% increase in conversion rate In NA.• Self service capability – Business teams are now empowered to deliver and update web-sites independently
  • Magento’s flexibility is also making possible the rapid deployment of sites on Magento Enterprise Edition with responsive designs – sites with layouts that automatically adapt to the device the shopper is on. One great example is Peter Millar’s new site. ChallengeWith the importance of their e-commerce channel growing, Peter Millar was looking to Enhance the site design and the user experience to more accurately reflect their luxury brand statusImplement a single solution that effectively reached their target audience across desktop, tablet and mobile devices Extend Magento functionality to better serve channel partnersMore elegantly present their product catalog and improve site performanceSolutionMagento Solution Partner Gorilla Group used the broad flexibility of the Magento platform to customize front-end and back-end elements to address each of Peter Millar’s business needs:A responsive design framework enabled the multichannel retailer to present “intentional experiences” tailored to site visitors across an array of devices.A new design and UX upgraded the look and feel of the site, capturing the essence of the Peter Millar lifestyle.Magento’s full-page caching functionality and Magento-specific hosting configuration combined to produce sub-1-second page load speeds.ResultsAcross the Board Improvements in Key MetricsThe responsive framework, coupled with a fresh, new look, search engine-friendly features, and Peter Millar’s own ascending brand have led to across the board increases in key metrics:-Total site visits up 70%; mobile visits up 140%- Organic conversion rate increased 9%- Average order value up over 20% across mobile and desktop channels
  • (Goal: track with agenda/Introduce customers topic)Let’s take a couple of minutes to look at an overview of the Magento organization…
  • Goal: More credibility/confidence around company factsA few quick metrics help capture where we are today as an organization:As we stated earlier, we’re the number one platform among merchants in the Alexa 100K.We’ve certified more than 1600 developers around the worldWe have more than 200 Gold and Silver level Solution Partners. These are systems integrators that have demonstrated expertise in Magento deployments.There are more than 5000 extensions and applications in Magento Connect, our extension marketplace. These extensions provide custom functionality across a range of commerce needs at low- or no cost.Today we serve customers and partners from 4 offices around the world. We have more than 500 employees focused on Magento across the organization. The majority of these employees work in product and engineering functions, helping to enhance our platform.
  • (Goal: reinforce credibility/#1 claim: merchants like you are choosing Magento in large numbers)The popularity and growth of our platform is reflected in our global market share. An analysis of eCommerce sites in the top 100 thousand Alexa websites reveals that Magento is by far the leading platform. And our share has been growing consistently since the study was initiated in 2011.
  • (goal: convey that Magento delivers an end to end eCommerce solution with our global network of partners and Magento services and support not just software. Solution has multiple components, depending on needs of customer. That’s part of flexibility.) Our goal is to help you develop a thriving, profitable online business. With Magento Enterprise Edition as the foundation –our partners work hand in hand with our services, support and training teams to bring your eCommerce vision to life. Your solution partner will your guide and work with you to understand your business requirements – and to design, configure, and customize your site – and make recommendations on extensions you may need to meet your unique business needs. They can also advise you on deployment options – whether you want to host your site in your own data center, with one of our Hosting Partners, or deploy in the cloud – many solution partners are also starting to offer managed hosting services as well.

  • (goal: position Solution Partners as key resource; emphasize benefits of partners: experts, will help ensure faster deployments, utilizing best practices, performance, etc.)Next Let me tell you a bit more about our global partner network – Magento’s partners in brining your eCommerce vision to life.

  • Magento’s services, support, and training teams are with you and your solution partner every step of the way – from ensuring you get off to a good start on planning your project through launch of your site and beyond. Talk through bullets for each.
  • (goal: let people know that eBay Inc. is bigger/better/cooler than they think); And of course Magento and our customers benefit from being part of eBay Inc. Through acquisitions, organic growth and a focus on innovation, eBay has expanded from its auction roots to a global commerce leader. What’s unique about eBay is that unlike other global commerce giants, eBay doesn’t compete with merchants; we work with them to enable their success. And Magento is a key component in this vision of the future of commerce.
