We have been enthusiastically utilising the powerful Pimcore and HubSpot platforms for several years now for the digital success of our customers. But we are not the only ones who are convinced by the innovative software. Just recently, Gartner, the world's leading provider of market research findings and analyses on IT developments, listed the open source framework Pimcore as a "Cool Vendor in Digital Commerce 2018". In addition, the 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 primarily due to the exceptional range of functions offered by the open source solution. In addition to digital assets and product information, Pimcore can be used to manage customer experiences and utilise useful e-commerce features, which also makes the platform attractive for large companies. Gartner also praises Pimcore's reliable technical architecture, which allows companies to stand out from the competition and realise the desired user experience.

Pimcore CEO Dietmar Rietsch has the following 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 the reason why we offer Pimcore as a free open source product. Being an official Gartner "Cool Vendor" confirms our strategy and makes us very proud." (Source: Pimcore Blog)
