How to boost your E-Commerce (EC) Magic Quadrant position

The Gartner Magic Quadrant for EC can reap huge rewards for your company.

If you can answer “yes” to any of these questions

  • Are your competitors getting better results — even when their product is inferior?
  • Are you struggling to ‘move your dot’ in this MQ?
  • Do your references seem to say something different when they talk to you and the analysts?
  • Did you not manage to be included in 2016 and want to try in 2017?

Rating for Magic Quadrant

“They were extremely knowledgeable about the Gartner process and their expectations. They went above and beyond working around our schedules to help make our response much better than we would have put together on our own. They helped us put all the information Gartner would want to see in a format they would want to see it in, hitting the points Gartner would care about. Their engagement was extremely valuable to help us hone in on our essential story to help shape our marketing message, as well to help with customer endeavors.”
