BigCommerce Partner Program enables Gorilla Group to expand cloud-based offerings and deliver faster customer ROI

AUSTIN, Texas — June 29, 2016 — BigCommerce, the leading ecommerce platform for fast-growing brands, today announced it has signed a strategic partnership with Gorilla Group, an award-winning commerce services provider responsible for implementing ecommerce solutions on behalf of category-leading brands such as Citizens of Humanity, DocuSign, JINS, and PayPal. Gorilla Group, a Premier Magento Solution Partner and Hybris Gold Solutions Partner, is joining BigCommerce’s Partner program to meet customer demand for a cloud-based, customizable ecommerce solution that delivers faster ROI.

As part of the agreement, Gorilla Group’s team of ecommerce strategists, designers, engineers and customer experience experts will work closely with BigCommerce’s in-house technology and account services teams to jointly support leading retailers on the BigCommerce Enterprise platform.

“Over our 20+ year history, we’ve witnessed firsthand the rapid growth and adoption of cloud-based commerce platforms by some of the most innovative brands around the world,” said Brian Grady, CEO at Gorilla Group. “We believe BigCommerce Enterprise is a very strong competitor among the SaaS ecommerce options available for the mid-market today, and the company has the vision and leadership to continue delivering the innovations expected from a market-leading platform."

Named to the Inc. 5000 list of fastest-growing companies six consecutive years, Gorilla Group employs more than 200 ecommerce experts around the world. Its industry-leading work has received numerous accolades including six Webby Awards and two Interactive Media Awards, which honor excellence in web development and ecommerce design. Partnering with BigCommerce gives Gorilla Group the ability to offer merchants a commerce as a service solution — leveraging market-leading technology alongside of Gorilla’s ecommerce expertise — providing retailers with the tools needed to effectively scale their ecommerce sales channel to meet demand.

“Gorilla’s work represents the best the internet and ecommerce have to offer,” said Brent Bellm, CEO for BigCommerce. “Cloud-based commerce platforms are the future of retail, and through this partnership our goal is to provide the world’s largest brands access to the tools and expertise they are requesting in order to grow their businesses without the security, hosting and maintenance challenges presented by legacy or custom-build platforms.”
