12 May, 2015


commercetools, the company behind the SPHERE.IO commerce platform as a service (PaaS) used by major retailers across Europe, announced the opening of its U.S. headquarters. Based in New York City, the office will be responsible for driving adoption in the U.S. by providing business-to-business and creative business-to-consumer retailers an affordable, easy-to-deploy, scalable, cloud commerce solution.

"The opening of our U.S. office is a key outcome of commercetools' success and growth in Europe," said Dirk Hoerig, chief executive officer at commercetools. "Having a physical presence in the U.S. furthers our commitment to quality for our customers and partners by providing them with a dedicated sales and developer team that works closely to help build their omnichannel commerce experiences."

"Today's retailers are burdened by bloated, hard-to-implement and costly legacy ecommerce platforms," said Arthur Lawida, general manager of commercetools U.S.    "commercetools is disrupting the way commerce platforms are licensed and implemented by providing SPHERE.IO—a cloud-based enterprise ecommerce platform with a proven ability to service both large and small customer needs across any channel.  Our goal is to significantly reduce the cost of acquiring and building sophisticated omnichannel commerce solutions while giving our customers more options than they have ever had from legacy systems."

SPHERE.IO allows for unlimited creativity on the front-end while supporting the most complex integrations on the back-end with a simple application program interface (API). Built from the ground up as a PaaS, SPHERE.IO provides both B2B and B2C companies the ultimate flexibility in how they implement their omnichannel commerce solutions while providing enterprise class commerce services to support their most complex back-end integration requirements.

Key Benefits of SPHERE.IO include:
