London – 18 October 2012 hybris, a global leader in multichannel commerce solutions, has announced that it has formed a new implementation partnership with the digital experience and technology specialist integrator, Red Ant. Originally founded as a technology company, Red Ant has become one of the UK’s fastest growing digital agencies, and has partnered with hybris on a variety of high profile commerce projects.
The new agreement enables Red Ant to further expand into the commerce sector, allowing it to bring together its own creative and design skills with hybris’ proven, agile B2B and B2C multichannel platforms, in particular the OnDemand and Multichannel Accelerator solutions.
Red Ant creates effective ways to help clients win in the race to digitally connect with their customers. It has offices in London, Geneva, Rio de Janeiro and Shanghai. Although the company has worked together with hybris for over four years, an additional implementation partner has also been involved. Under the new agreement, Red Ant will be able to manage sole implementations, and hybris is keen to maximise its experience in high volume, fast-turnaround projects.
Frank Schoutissen, Vice President Channel at hybris, said: “Red Ant’s ambitions are to take its existing creative and digital expertise and apply this broadly into the commerce market. We have already worked together on highly successful platforms for organisations including The Entertainer, and we have been impressed by Red Ant’s commitment to delivering results, its willingness to adapt to new technology and the depth of its understanding of what customers need. We are very excited about the opportunities that we can work on together with Red Ant.”
Red Ant has been appointed as a hybris Implementation Partner and will focus on UK-based customers. However, the company’s experience internationally will also be an advantage, as hybris expands its channel partnerships in South America and the APAC regions.
Paul Bidder, Commercial Director at Red Ant, said: “We have spent some time familiarising ourselves with the hybris solutions and we know how they work in practice. As a result we are delighted to formalise our relationship and move into full-scale implementations of the hybris platform for our increasing roster of customers. As well as implementing the multichannel platform, we will also be providing training and support and we are looking forward to a successful partnership.”
