Episerver™, the customer-centric digital experience company, announced today their acquisition of B2B commerce leader Insite Software™. As the only agency partner to have achieved Platinum status with both organizations, Verndale– a customer experience agency headquartered in Boston, MA – is well-positioned to help their clients on both platforms, as well as the broader market understand and leverage these industry-leading technologies in support of specific digital strategies and business models.
In press release from Episerver, the business logic for the acquisition is underscored by the reality that “more than 70 percent of global B2B decision-makers surveyed confirmed the majority of their company’s revenue will come from B2B e-commerce websites they own and operate within the next five years. Episerver plus Insite accelerates each company’s commerce functionality and offers a clear path for customers to take the next most logical step in delivering customer-centric digital experiences to understand their customers, grow their brand and uncover new revenue.”
Adam Berger, chairman and Insight Partners’ managing director, says of the acquisition of Insite that Episerver “saw a big opportunity to deliver greater value to the underserved trillion-dollar B2B commerce market, which is set to surpass B2C retail sales by two-fold next year.”
Jeff Pratt, Verndale’s Commerce Practice Director, says that “we understand the synergies between these industry leading platforms and how each has unique value to both the B2B Manufacturing, Distribution and B2C Specialty Retail markets.”
Chris Pisapia, CEO of Verndale, adds that “Verndale is incredibly excited to learn of the acquisition of Insite by Episerver. We believe very much in the opportunity with B2B commerce and agree that Insite has a unique position in this market. As the only Platinum partner with both products, we believe that Verndale is uniquely positioned to support the integration of these two great companies.”

Current Verndale clients on the Episerver platform include Quinnipiac University, Reyes Beverage Group, and Home Franchise Concepts.
