CommercialWare, Users Win Kudos

Datavantage/CommercialWare, a wholly owned subsidiary of MICROS Systems, Inc., and a provider of multi-channel technology for the specialty and general merchandise retail industry, has announced that the Company and many of its customers have recently received numerous industry acknowledgements from leading publications and organizations.

In Apparel magazine’s "Top 50 Software Scorecard" in the May 2007 issue, Datavantage/CommercialWare earned the highest score in Overall Satisfaction as well as the number six position overall in the retail software category.

“Of the approximately 160 apparel- and retail-specific software firms invited to participate in the project, just 50 qualified for inclusion in our Scorecard report,” said Kathleen DesMarteau, Apparel’s editor in chief. “So those firms who made the cut have truly demonstrated their excellence in serving our industry.”

The March issue of Catalog Success featured the fifth-annual exclusive ranking of U.S.-based catalogers with the speediest recent housefile growth rates, defined as how many new customers catalogers add. Sur la Table was awarded the number one spot and is among many Datavantage/CommercialWare customers in the Top 200 ranking including: #14 Edwin Watts, #29 Van Bourgondien, #40 J.Jill, #45 Jos. A. Banks, #51 Pendelton, #56 Avenue (United Retail Group), #66 Appleseeds, #85 Aerosoles, #97 Garnet Hill, #108 Park Seed, #131 Boston Proper, and #196 Flax Art.

Several Datavantage/CommercialWare customers were named as finalists in Multichannel Merchant's MCM Awards including J.C. Whitney & Co. (Print Channel, Cross-Channel and Web Channel), Patagonia (Print Channel) and Sundance (Web Channel). The judges named finalists in 17 categories from more than 200 entries.

Peruvian Connection was one of 10 retailers selected as a Mid Market All-Star in the May issue of RIS News. As stated in the RIS News – Mid-Market All Stars 2007 article, “They may not all be at a mall near you, or housed in a behemoth big-box store, but [these] 10 midsize retailers are all achieving impressive marketplace success and growth in year-over-year revenue gains. Beginning with a strong retailing concept, these retailers are taking their initial success to the next level by building up their brands, expanding geographically, fine-tuning business processes and investing in IT as a key enabler of critical initiatives and goals.”

For the fourth year in a row, CommercialWare has also been awarded the Garnet Hill True North Award, an annual tribute to core business partners. The award was established four years ago for its vendor community and recognizes those partners that provide superior service and value to its business.

We already noted that Datavantage/CommercialWare was recognized as a Top 10 best retail software vendor in the 7th Annual RIS LeaderBoard, scored by RIS News. In addition, the Company was voted the preferred retail software POS (point-of-sale) vendor with the highest adoption of STORES Magazine’s Hot 100 Retailers reported in the Eighth Annual POS Benchmarking Survey, an independent study prepared by LakeWest Group. I assume this last honor applies more to the Datavantage tools than to CommercialWare's....
