McFadyen Digital Launches Industry-First “Marketplace Suite Spot”
The marketplace vendor comparison report analyzes leading platforms that enable businesses to launch an online marketplace
VIENNA, VA. — October 19, 2020 — McFadyen Digital, a leading global advisor and creator of award-winning marketplaces, today launched the industry’s first and only marketplace vendor comparison report, titled “Marketplace Suite Spot.”
The report evaluates the top technologies that businesses can use to create, launch and grow their own online marketplace. Business and technology leaders across B2B and B2C who are looking to join the platform economy will find valuable guidance to help them evaluate which vendor best fits their specific business needs.
During the pandemic many businesses need to expand and enhance their legacy e-commerce offerings and the “Marketplace Suite Spot” explores the benefits of marketplace models and technologies that aid in the growth and evolving needs of digital commerce.
“Many clients of McFadyen’s advisory services requested this analysis so we decided to publish this report.” said Tom McFadyen, CEO of McFadyen Digital. “Over 50% of commerce happens on marketplaces – everybody needs a marketplace strategy. This assessment is the first step in participating in the platform revolution.”
The brief presents an analysis of six of the top marketplace platforms: Mirakl, VTEX, Unirgy, Webkul, Arcadier and Sharetribe. Each vendor overview includes information about the solution, pricing, strengths and cautions, a company overview and sample customers. The report also briefly explores a number of other marketplace technologies, including MarketCube.io, Maistro, Laravel, Uppler, Izberg, Marketplacer and more.
These marketplace technologies were evaluated on their ability to scale and their features on the Marketplace Maturity Model (the industry standard for measuring marketplaces). These evaluations are based on McFadyen Digital’s hands-on experience with multiple marketplace platforms, conversations with vendors, conversations with clients of vendors, opinions of industry experts and publicly available information.
