On the annual Belgian E-commerce Xpo in Kortrijk, EMAKERS announced yesterday that it will start supporting the German e-commerce platform Shopware. Shopware is the No 1 e-commerce platform active in the German market, used by over 54,000 brands of all sizes. "Today, the Shopware platform is also rapidly growing market share in both the Dutch and British markets", says EMAKERS’ CEO Stefan Vermeulen. “Web shops need to run fast and entice site visitors to become customers. The Shopware platform and its associated marketing functionalities do exactly that. It acts like a high quality engine, much like what Europe is already used to from German manufacturers.” Xavier Gerard, CTO of EMAKERS: “It is always EMAKERS’ first choice to provide reliable, standard technology for reasons of business sustainability. Shopware’s new 5.2 version is such a standard technology. It provides companies of all sizes with a free open-source Community edition. Additionally, its Professional and Enterprise editions are robust options for mid-sized companies.” “We are pleased to have EMAKERS enhance our agency network”, says Jan Kosters, Shopware Account Executive for the BeNeLux market. “Through close cooperation with EMAKERS, Belgian brands can now connect with a local presence. EMAKERS can build upon our years of experience with brands coming from various industries, such as fashion or FMCG.”
