Coldwater Creek, a 40-year-old direct-to-consumer brand, needed to upgrade its technology and replace its eCommerce platform. The company has ambitions to strategically grow in a cost-effective and timely way. Coldwater Creek turned to digital commerce agency CQL, an elite BigCommerce partner, to help identify an eCommerce platform that would provide features and benefits to improve financial performance and support growth. The brand ultimately chose BigCommerce for its technological capabilities, strategic implementation plan and impressive total cost of ownership.

In addition the ability to deliver engaging customer experiences and provide us with tools to scale operations and grow revenue.”

Enterprise Times: What this means for business.

It looks like another successful year for BigCommerce. With this implementation, the company has further entrench itself in the retail and fashion industry. The company has broken into new sectors with new storefronts with BMW and Mini, International coffee brand Lavazza in the Netherlands and Belgium and MKM Building Supplies. The Open SaaS eCommerce platform has also continued to evolve it platform.

In January, the company launched its Omnichannel Certified Partner (OCP) Program signing up Microsoft Ads and Listings. The company has also signed up imaginative partnerships with WPP to provide omnichannel solutions to WPP clients. In addition, it formed a new partnership with Oracle Netsuite. Unusually, NetSuite has developed the connector to set up data mapping between NetSuite and eCommerce storefronts, point of sale (POS) systems, online marketplaces and third-party logistics providers. So it appears that the sky’s the limit for BigCommerce in 2024.
