Guidance Wins Magento Partner Excellence Award
Web and mobile e-commerce company Guidance, one of the Top 500 companies on the list of brands trusted by Internet Retailer, has won the Magento Partner Excellence Award for the second year running.
The Magento Partner Excellence Award is an award that Magento runs annually as a way to recognize solutions partners who provide excellent Magento implementations and a good focus on customer satisfaction. This year, only four companies from the USA received the award, out of 300 Magento Partners.
Jason Meuginot, President and CEO of Guidance, said “It is an honor to be recognized as the best for the second consecutive year. Winning this award is a credit to our employees and we hope to be distinguished again next year for our 2013 implementations.”
Magento is a powerful e-commerce platform due to Magento extensions, and Guidance has put it to good use, building Magento powered sites for a range of companies including Murad, Relax the Black, Tacori, Sole Society, Scosche, Advanstar and many others. Guidance is a long-standing company, and has been working with brands since 1993, before open-source e-commerce platforms even existed.
These awards are eye-opening in many respects. Guidance works for some big-name companies, but there is little to stop smaller brands from creating similar e-commerce websites using the Magento platform if they have the design and coding skills required to extend upon the platform.
A part of what sets Guidance apart from other partners is the way that they have integrated social and mobile features into the platform. If you are considering launching an e-commerce site in the near future, be sure to pay attention to social networking features, and also to focus on responsive design so that anyone can enjoy the experience of using your shopping cart, no matter what platform they are browsing on.
