AUSTIN, Texas — December 20, 2016 — BigCommerce, the leading commerce platform for fast-growing and mid-market brands, today announced the expansion of the BigCommerce Partner Program to include Alpine Consulting, Born Group (“BORN”), Brand Labs and efelle creative. As Certified BigCommerce Partners, each will support client adoption and implementation of the BigCommerce platform, providing a full range of enterprise-grade services including ecommerce strategy, website design and development, technical integrations and marketing.

“From strategy and design, to implementation, optimization and analysis, maintaining an effective ecommerce site involves a lot of moving parts,” said Russell Griffin, vice president of mid-market sales and channel for BigCommerce. “Our desire is to provide our customers access to the industry’s best ecosystem of experts to ensure their projects are executed successfully. Each of these organizations was specifically chosen for its proven track record for delivering high-quality and high-performing websites.”

Alpine Consulting, recently awarded the 2016 Magento “Spirit of Excellence” for outstanding client service, brings more than 16 years of experience providing strong ecommerce solutions for leading brands, including Fortune 1000 companies Caterpillar, Emerson and Nidec. “Our retail clients are increasingly looking for an ecommerce platform that enables the business to focus on generating sales instead of maintenance and integration costs,” said Peter Wokwicz, chief operating officer at Alpine Consulting. “At Alpine, our goal is to provide superior service and solutions, and working with BigCommerce’s industry experts enables us to deploy even the most complex B2B ecommerce solutions with ease.”

BORN, an award-winning agency widely acknowledged as a leading ecommerce services company, also joins the BigCommerce Partner program. Dilip Keshu, CEO at BORN said, “Partnering with BigCommerce opens the door for us to bring our services to a new segment of the market while still leveraging best-in-class technologies.”

Brand Labs, which has helped launch 500+ ecommerce projects since 2006, will provide a full suite of website design, development, strategy and Marketing services to support the needs of B2B and B2C retailers selling through the platform. “In an industry where most ecommerce platforms cater to the needs of small startups or large enterprises, we were drawn to BigCommerce’s vision to support businesses at every stage of their growth,” said Dane Downer, president at Brand Labs. “As an agency that cut our teeth in ecommerce, we have a deep understanding of the nuances of building and maintaining successful ecommerce websites that, when combined with our unique consultative approach, will ensure BigCommerce Enterprise customers have the tools for long-term success.”

Efelle creative, one of the West Coast’s largest and most prestigious digital agencies, has been instrumental in the design and development of more than 600 websites for small-to-medium businesses by creating a tailored approach that ensures maximum sales impact for each business. “Companies looking to run a more effective online business are increasingly making the move to SaaS for its flexibility, scalability, and operational efficiency, and in this regard, BigCommerce is a true industry leader,” said Fred Lebhart, CEO for efelle creative. “They have an unparalleled commitment to their customers, and built a platform that not only meets, but anticipates, the needs of today’s mid-market brands. As an Enterprise ecommerce solution, they’ve thought of everything.”
