We have been enthusiastically using the powerful Pimcore and HubSpot platforms for the digital success of our clients for several years now. But we are not the only ones who are convinced by the innovative software. Only recently, Gartner, the world's leading provider of market research and analysis on IT developments, listed the open-source framework Pimcore as a "Cool Vendor in Digital Commerce 2018". In addition, inbound marketing and sales software HubSpot has now been named "The Best CRM Lead Management Software of 2018 as Reviewed by Customers" by Gartner.

Gartner ehrt Pimcore und HubSpot als innovative Software-Lösungen

Pimcore is one of five "Cool Vendors" in the field of digital commerce

With its annually published list of "Cool Vendors", the renowned market research and consulting company Gartner draws attention to young technology companies with innovative solutions. So far, only a few companies from German-speaking countries have made it onto this list. The fact that Pimcore is listed as one of five providers worldwide in the field of digital commerce is mainly due to the extraordinary range of functions of the open source solution provided. In addition to digital assets and product information, customer experiences can be managed and useful e-commerce features can be used in Pimcore, which makes the platform attractive even for large companies. Furthermore, Gartner praises Pimcore's reliable technical architecture, which allows companies to differentiate themselves from competitors and realise the desired user experience.

Pimcore CEO Dietmar Rietsch has the following words to say about the current Gartner honour: "Our vision is to create the most outstanding solutions for the complex challenges of digital transformation by providing a software platform for data and customer experience management, including eCommerce. We strongly believe in the flexibility and innovative power of open source ecosystems. This is also why we offer Pimcore free as a free open source product. Being an official Gartner "Cool Vendor" validates our strategy and makes us mighty proud." (Source: Pimcore Blog)
