On October 17, 2016, Kibo, a leader in cloud-based omnichannel commerce solutions, announced its acquisition of Mozu, a cloud-based enterprise commerce platform designed to help brands manage their entire online presence — commerce, branding, customer engagement and publishing — in a single, powerful and enjoyable experience.
Customers will continue to find themselves with the most innovative omnichannel solutions available in the market.
According to Jason Wallis, Mozu’s Chief Technology Officer, “Mozu and Kibo customers alike will be thrilled with this news, as Kibo is dedicated to aggressively investing in the commerce platform. Customers will continue to find themselves with the most innovative omnichannel solutions available in the market.”
The acquisition and integration of Mozu’s technology into the Kibo platform will enable roadmap acceleration to deliver the industry’s most robust, feature-rich, cloud-based enterprise commerce technology. Existing Kibo customers will benefit from an injection of unique technologies that will enhance market differentiation and platform extensibility.
The best solutions build cross-channel consistency, seamlessness, and individualized brand experiences for every consumer.
“We believe the best solutions build cross-channel consistency, seamlessness, and individualized brand experiences for every consumer,” says Kenneth Frank, CEO at Kibo, in the official press release. “This investment represents our commitment to empowering our customers to increase sales and improve consumer loyalty.”
Echidna, a leading cloud eCommerce agency and Premier Partner of Mozu Commerce, is excited to continue service to current clients on the Mozu platform and build transformative eCommerce experiences for even more of today’s top brands via a new and growing relationship with Kibo Commerce. Adam Roozen, CEO at Echidna, feels that the acquisition validates the direction of both Mozu and Echidna: “When we reviewed the Mozu technology platform before it was publicly available, we fell in love with it. It’s built for the future and is years ahead of its competition, and we’re glad we went ‘all-in’ with the Mozu team. We’re excited by the validity that this acquisition gives to the platform, and are proud to be Mozu’s premier partner in the past and present. We are looking forward to continued success in partnership with Kibo Commerce and its extended ecosystem.”
