Stone Edge: #3 Among Top 500 E-tailers.

The Internet Retailer Top 500 Guide lists the order management systems (OMS) used by the 500 largest E-tailers. Of the 500, 167 listed something other than "n/a" or "in-house" for their OMS. Looking at the list below (showing the vendor and number of users listed in the Top 500), it is interesting to note that Stone Edge lands at a very respectable Number 3, behind two giants, Escalate Retail and GSI Commerce. Way to go, Barney!

The entire list is actually quite fascinating, and provides some provocative food for thought:

Escalate Retail: 34
GSI Commerce: 17
Stone Edge Order Manager: 13
CommercialWare: 9
Dydacomp: 6
Oracle: 5
Everest: 4
Sterling Commerce: 4
SAP: 3
ATG: 3
Epicore|CRS: 3
Microsoft Dynamics: 3
NetSuite: 3
Sage: 3
Kewill Systems: 2
Avexxis: 2
Island Pacific: 2
*Amazon Services: 2
Alexander Interactive: 2
OrderMotion: 2
Acadaca Internet Solutions: 2
QuickBooks: 2

41 others had a single user each.

*I am interested in learning what any of you may know about Amazon Services, or what your experiences have been. Please let me know. Thanks.

Thanks for the analysis! Very interesting. I think this data shows two things - 1) about 2/3rd of the top 500 still use no commercial OMS, and 2) even among the 167 that do, there is clear fragmentation. I think it will be very interesting to overlay sales volume on top of this data. My guess is the picture would look very different for e-tailers > $1b that e-tailers < $100 mill. Can you provide some insight on this?

Most likely, and obviously, the more expensive systems are in use by the bigger e-tailers. But I haven't examined the data for that. I'd appreciate input from anyone who has.
