Lightspeed eCom: the future of omnichannel retailing
The evolution of our company took a giant leap forward today with the addition of SEOshop, the fastest growing eCommerce platform in Europe, to the Lightspeed family.
Since 2008, SEOshop has been transforming the European eCommerce market helping over 8000 customers, including some recognizable brands such as Heineken, Grolsch, National Geographic, Philips Lighting, and the Van Gogh Museum, change the way they manage their online business. With their highly localizable, multi-language, multi-currency capabilities, SEOshop is the integral piece in completing Lightspeed’s vision of becoming a global omnichannel retail solution.
“With the industry rapidly digitizing, online-only merchant demand has grown exponentially. Bringing SEOshop into the Lightspeed family gives us additional scale, and allows us to help store owners create a global shopping experience and sell smarter – no matter how their customers choose to shop.” – Dax Dasilva, CEO
This exciting extension to Lightspeed will also also usher in a new solution for retailers who need to stay competitive in an industry where customers are demanding a seamless in-store and online shopping journey.
