Echidna is excited to announce Gold status as an Oracle Commerce Cloud implementation partner. It only makes sense that Echidna would be partnering with Oracle Commerce Cloud. The combination of our record of experience with Oracle, our leadership in the cloud-based SaaS commerce world, and the way Oracle Commerce Cloud complements our current service offerings made it a simple decision.
Echidna has worked extensively with Oracle in the past, specifically on the Oracle ATG platform. As a company, our past experience includes projects for clients such as Kohl’s and Michael Kors, among others. In addition to company-wide project experience, Echidna’s leadership team also has deep experience with Oracle ATG, on both the systems integration side and the client-side.
We’ve been saying this for the last few years, and more and more companies are beginning to realize that it’s true. If you’re still not convinced, then just think about this: if Oracle, the second-largest software company in the world, is going all-in on commerce in the cloud, you know it’s important. We’re not saying that SaaS is for everyone today, but a SaaS-based commerce platform can carry a ton of benefits, especially for mid-market companies — reduced IT expenditure, faster time-to-market, more seamless updates, and more.
And we haven’t just been talking about SaaS — we’ve been building on it, and we’ll continue to build on it. Different projects need different solutions, and fortunately, we’ve been able to develop partnerships and expertise on several SaaS-based commerce platforms. We think Oracle Commerce Cloud is a great addition to the lineup.
Creating a digital presence that delights customers requires a B2C-like experience these days, even for those in B2B. Pair that with the ability to browse, configure, request a quote and purchase the products with ease and that can make it all a bit complex. Construction Specialties realized they needed an eCommerce platform that was flexible and a partner focused on customer delight. Read our case study on how we implemented Oracle Commerce Cloud and helped Construction Specialties improve unique purchases online by 150%.
Given Echidna’s expertise in user experience, technology, and marketing, Oracle Commerce Cloud complements our current capabilities in a unique way, and it expands the range of options we can offer our current and future clients.
Echidna has already built an accelerator on the Oracle Commerce Cloud platform. This OCC accelerator is a key differentiator that we’re confident will give our clients a leg up on the competition, should they choose to go with Oracle Commerce Cloud for their implementation.
We’d be happy to talk personally about why we partner with Oracle Commerce Cloud or any other questions you have about Oracle Commerce Cloud and Echidna.
