Bigcommerce buys Zing to boost retail capabilities Featured

By

eCommerce platform vendor Bigcommerce has made its first acquisition, buying Texas-based mobile retail technologies provider Zing.

Under the deal, Zing’s team and intellectual property will become part of Bigcommerce, further expanding the company’s omnichannel retail capabilities and accelerating partnerships with leading point of sale providers including Square, Lightspeed and NCR Silver.

Bigcommerce co-founder and CEO Eddie Machaalani says the company will make available to point of sale partners a set of robust APIs and foundational technologies to enable the development of best-in-class omnichannel solutions for retailers, such as the ability to enable real-time inventory sync between online and physical stores, in-store pickup, and dynamic order management as well as integrated customer data and reporting spanning ecommerce and brick-and-mortar operations.

“The industry has reached an inflection point where retailers of all sizes want and expect to deliver next-gen experiences, such as in-store pickup and ship-from-store, without the complexity of switching between multiple back office tools,” said Machaalani said.

Zing co-founder and CEO Nate Stewart said that since the company’s inception, its mission has been to help business owners “sell more effectively through products that simplify and streamline how they manage their retail operations, both online and in store”.

“There is no better embodiment of that mission than Bigcommerce, and we’re thrilled to bring our expertise to a company that has proven itself to be the most flexible and scalable platform for emerging brands to grow their business.”
