Tenzing announced plans to expand its ecommerce hosting to Europe. The Toronto-based ecommerce, managed hosting company started serving customers in London on Tuesday.
Tenzing plans to expand its coverage to the greater European market in response to demand for its Magento, Oracle Commerce, IBM Websphere, Intershop and Hybris offerings. With digital payments reaching $4.7 trillion by 2019, service providers offering ecommerce solutions will be well-positioned to take advantage of this growth.
“We are thrilled to have begun deploying our first set of customers in London, it gives them peace of mind to work with an experienced vendor during international expansion,” Raj Atwal, General Manager of ecommerce at Tenzing said. “Instead of working with multiple vendors, SLAs and contracts, we are easing the pain of geographic expansion by managing their enterprise ecommerce platform globally.”
“Mid-market retailers have different needs when it comes to the infrastructure that powers their online channels,” Keith Gaudreau, VP of IT and Operations at Tenzing said. “Tenzing’s expansion to Europe and our partnership with AWS gives retailers a range of options to address those unique needs.”
“Our strategy behind the expansion is to allow us to help retailers on a global scale. Our mission this year has been to provide ‘Commerce Anywhere,’” Tenzing marketing manager Nicola Fahy told the WHIR. “The EU expansion, combined with our partnership with AWS allows us to expand the options we provide retailers for their infrastructure.” Customers will now have two options for ecommerce infrastructure in Europe with Tenzing, either traditional infrastructure in London or AWS from Dublin.
In the past,Tenzing has optimized Magento ecommerce for online retailers allowing for greater scalability and performance.
