LOS ANGELES – June 22, 2021 – Annex Cloud, a global, enterprise technical solutions provider of advanced personalized and experiential customer retention software and loyalty management solutions, announced it has expanded its partner ecosystem with Intershop, a leading independent provider of innovative solutions for omnichannel commerce. The integration with Intershop’s Commerce Platform provides B2B organizations with a full suite of loyalty management capabilities that strategically collects and leverages first-party data to reward customers for buying more, more often.

Increasing customer expectations, coupled with the fact that interactions at every stage of the journey are becoming more complex, present a significant challenge for today’s B2B organizations. According to Gallup, B2B organizations with high customer engagement scores achieve 50% higher revenue, 34% higher profitability, and 55% higher share of wallet. This partnership equips B2B organizations with a wide range of engagement options to build meaningful customer bonds that drive growth and improve retention.

“Effective data management and continual engagement are imperative to building and retaining customers in this new digital-driven economy where the competition is fierce and consumers are demanding,” said Al Lalani, Co-founder & Chief Strategist, Annex Cloud. “Our partnership with Intershop is exciting in that it gives manufacturers and wholesalers a complete loyalty solution they can tailor to their needs to foster meaningful relationships with their best customers. We’ve seen some very innovative customer use cases that clearly demonstrate that loyalty is every bit, if not more, important for B2B.”

“Like Annex Cloud, we’re focused on ensuring our customers are successful and positioned to drive growth beyond one-time purchases,” said Andy Stanis, Managing Director, Americas at Intershop. “B2B buyers have undergone a radical shift in priorities when it comes to their buying preferences, so having the ability to understand their needs and wants is critical to driving deeper engagements with them. Together with Annex Cloud, we provide B2B organizations with the technology, functionality, and agility they need to build profitable, lifelong relationships with their customers.”
