SAN DIEGO – Nov. 12, 2019 – Certona®, a Kibo company and the pioneer in AI-driven personalization, today announced that the company has maintained its ranking as the #1 personalization provider to the most successful e-retailers in North America, recognized by Digital Commerce 360. Certona is the only personalization provider recognized as a personalization leader for 11 consecutive years.
Internet Retailer, now Digital Commerce 360, first evaluated the leading 1000 e-retailers selling in North America and then ranked them for the 2019 report. Next, the publication identified e-commerce service providers with these retailers as clients and published its list of “2020 Leading Vendors to the Top 1000 E-Retailers” based on the data. Retailer interviews and case studies are also included in the report, serving as a credible reference for vendor evaluation used by retailers.
Certona clients comprise 60 of the Digital Commerce 360 top 500 and 84 of the top 1000. On average they have seen conversion rates increase by 23% when shoppers interacted with personalized experiences.
In February 2019, Certona was acquired by Kibo, a leader in cloud commerce solutions. By coming together, Kibo and Certona now offer a robust cloud commerce platform, comprised of both eCommerce and order management solutions, with a best-in-class personalization platform and in-store solutions. As the market becomes more dynamic and competitive, retailers need individualized ways to build loyalty, drive sales, and streamline their business. The combined company represents a milestone for the future of digital commerce – putting personalization of the customer journey front and center for retailers while also providing flexible, innovative cloud-based commerce solutions.
In October 2019, Kibo announced it has acquired the leading testing and optimization provider, Monetate. The acquisition will expand Kibo and Certona’s personalization capabilities and also extend the reach of Kibo’s end-to-end cloud commerce platform.
“We are committed to having a big impact on the future of retail, which we believe lies in the ability to personalize the customer experience, so it’s exciting to have so many e-retailer clients who share our personalization vision” said Meyar Sheik, president and chief commerce officer, Kibo. “To that end, we are thrilled to again be included in the Leading Vendors list, as the leading partner for personalization. More e-retailers trust Certona than any other personalization provider, and we don’t take for granted the opportunity to work with the best of the best in the industry.”
