Online marketplace provider continues ‘best ever’ year with awards triumph at gala London ceremony 16 October – Mirakl, the online marketplace solution provider, has been awarded the Online Technology Vendor of the Year award at last night’s (15 October) Retail Systems Awards ceremony. The Online Technology Vendor of the Year award was one of the most keenly contested of the ceremony, which took place at the London Marriott Hotel and was attended by a who’s who of the UK retail industry. Mirakl was up against some of the world’s most highly-regarded retail technology firms, including HookLogic, Intershop Communications, Maxymiser, Oracle Marketing Cloud and SpinMe, and was voted the winner by Retail Systems’ independent judging panel. “2015 has been the year that online marketplaces have really come of age in the retail sector and for Mirakl it has been our best ever year,” said Adrien Nussenbaum, CEO of Mirakl Inc. “Not only have we confirmed deals with some of the world’s biggest retailers, but we have closed a funding round of $20M and now won one of the industry’s most prestigious awards for our online marketplace technology. We have even bigger plans for 2016 and winning this Retail Systems award gives us the ideal platform to go forward and meet our goals.” The Retail Systems Awards are now in their 10th year and seek to recognise technology excellence and innovation within the retail sector. Winning entries come from retailers and technology suppliers who are leading the way in such areas as mobile, online, payments, loyalty and personalisation. Mirakl has signed more than 20 retail customers so far in 2015, as the demand for online marketplaces increases. Retailers such as Best Buy, GAME and Halfords have been attracted by a marketplace’s ability to offer greater scope for expansion combined with higher profit growth and lower risk. This allows a retailer to increase the products it offers, to introduce new categories, offer more competitive pricing improve the service offered to its customers. “Online marketplaces retain some of the core principles of retailing, and provide the customer with price, choice and availability,” continued Adrien Nussenbaum. “Mirakl is the company making this happen and to be recognised for the quality and success of our product at the Retail Systems Awards 2015 is hugely gratifying. The reasons that we won are the same reasons that so many of the world’s retailers have chosen to work with us, and we look forward to continuing that into 2016 and beyond.” Earlier this year Mirakl recently closed a $20 million Series B round of funding, a deal led by noted investors such as 83North’s Laurel Bowden (an investor in firms such as hybris, Just Eat and Notonthehighstreet), Felix Capital’s Frederic Court and Dave Strohm, Partner at Greylock.
