Bearsted, Kent: New and ferociously powerful ecommerce software, Tiger Commerce, has been selected as the eCommerce Partner, and first Business Village partner, by Springfair.com, the retail industry’s largest and most comprehensive website for independent and multiple retailers in the UK.

Part of the Emap Group, the Spring and Autumn Fairs are held every year at the Birmingham NEC and are the UK’s largest home and gift trade exhibitions with over 100,000 visitors. The country’s definitive product and supplier sourcing website, Springfair.com is the online representation of the trade shows.

With more than 55,000 unique visitors each month, Springfair.com is a rapidly growing website. To help retailers and manufacturers seek providers, advisors and solutions, Springfair.com have launched its Business Village, a new B2B hub with Tiger Commerce as its eCommerce Partner.

A new breed of ecommerce software, Tiger Commerce will now provide ecommerce guides, content and advice, along with online shop solutions for the Springfair and Autumnfair.com community.

Recently let out of its cage onto the ecommerce software market, Tiger Commerce offers a customisable, sophisticated online shop with all the features to be expected from a leading ecommerce software package – at a cost effective price of £17.99 per month.

Neil Smith, Director of ecommerce at Tiger Commerce stated that the company were “delighted to enter this exclusive partnership with Spring Fair and its sister event, Autumn Fair. Our market leading ecommerce platform is a perfect fit for Spring & Autumn Fair, with their dominant position as the largest trade exhibitions for UK independent and multiple retailers.”

Mr Smith added that the companies are looking forward to working together “to help retailers cut through the 'ecommerce noise', make the right decisions when looking to sell online and give our audience the best possible chance of ecommerce success during these darker economic times.”
