Brightpearl to showcase eBay and Magento improvements at eCommerce Expo in London

Bristol, UK - September 26 2012 - Brightpearl (www.brightpearl.com), the commerce acceleration platform, today announced its attendance at the eCommerce Expo in Olympia on 2nd and 3rd October on stand 220. At the event, which is the leading show in the UK for online retailers, Brightpearl will demonstrate its market-leading capability for integrating and managing transactions on the Magento ecommerce platform and the eBay marketplace.

Brightpearl has led the way in providing a fully integrated inventory, orders, accounting and customer communications suite for growing retailers. With its customers it has embraced the shift to selling online with support for Magento and for eBay. Brightpearl's mix of online and traditional retail expertise makes it uniquely placed to understand the opportunities and challenges of a mixed sales environment and how fully supporting for both is a requirement to thrive in today's retail environment.

“Brightpearl customers tend to be smart, dynamic and ambitious for their businesses” said Salman Malik, CEO at Brightpearl. “They know that going online allows them to compete on a more equal footing with the bigger retailers but also that it brings stock, order fulfilment and customer communication challenges to their business. They tell me that investing in Brightpearl has let them succeed with technologies like Magento and in marketplaces like eBay. We're delighted to be better able to support that.”

Brightpearl released the Magento integration for its customers in January 2012 and has seen tremendous uptake within its customer base of the commerce platform.  Since its launch the company has added the ability to run multiple Magento-based websites with a single Brightpearl account. This was driven by the desire of customers to support multiple public brands, considered essential with customers using highly targeted search.

For eBay, Brightpearl has worked hard on smoothly importing existing eBay stores and letting customers more easily take advantage of the inventory, order processing and communications capabilities that Brightpearl brings to ensure continued “Top Seller” rankings. Both integrations will be available for demonstration at the event.
