Oct 12, 2011, 10:32 ET from Lyons Consulting Group

SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 12, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Magento, Lyons Consulting Group, Bronto, MyBuys, and PowerReviews, today announced the first ever end-to-end ecommerce bundle offered as a one-stop solution for Magento merchants, E5, to be launched at the X.commerce Innovate Conference on October 12th.  

Built on Magento's revolutionary software platform, Lyons Consulting Group brings together these leading software-as-service solutions to produce E5, the industry's first comprehensive end-to-end solution for online retailers. Together, E5 has decades of experience successfully implementing and integrating with the Magento platform, each bringing a distinct, essential element of creating and maintaining a successful online business.

Most online retailers have trouble navigating the myriad of e-commerce solutions available, narrowing down options and selecting the optimal mix of providers without devouring profit margin.  The concept behind E5 is to provide online retailers with a comprehensive, simple and effective way to bring these leading technologies to their Magento platform. Because Lyons Consulting Group has pre-built extensions to each of the technology providers, the E5 solution bypasses typical hurdles of limited personalization, scalability, or financial or technical constraints.  

"When working with a new client, we find that a big issue for them can be deciding what systems to integrate," said Rich Lyons, CEO and President of Lyons Consulting Group. "Through the E5 partnership, we have eliminated the need for time consuming and expensive custom integrations by joining forces with some of the best technology providers."

Through the integration of E5, retailers and brand manufacturers can develop loyal customers through:

  • An unyielding foundation to work from on one of the most flexible, robust, scalable open-source platforms in the industry
  • Expert-guided design, development and support from one of the leading Magento Enterprise Solutions Partner
  • Create targeted customer segments based on purchase history recency, frequency and monetary value
  • Recover lost revenue by sending targeted emails based on shopping cart abandonments
  • Increase customer reviews via personalized follow-up email, mobile and social campaigns and post reviews on website and subsequent emails to drive purchases
  • Engage past shoppers and customers with targeted recommendations via email, mobile, social, and display marketing to encourage repeat visits and purchases
  • Improving website sales and AOV with more relevant and effective website merchandising

"We are excited to see the E5 technologies come together on the Magento platform to offer a truly unique value proposition to merchants looking to grow their online business," said Bob Schwartz, President of Magento.  "And with creation and delivery of the solution through Lyons Consulting Group, a Magento Solution Partner with deep Magento experience and expertise, we believe the E5 bundle provides strong benefits to Magento Enterprise customers."

The X.commerce Innovate Conference is scheduled for October 12-13th in San Francisco. The E5 group will provide X.commerce attendees an opportunity to see the first live, free demos of the E5 combined solution. For more information regarding E5, please email e5@lyonscg.com or call 312.564.3142.
