Jul 29, 2008 (08:07 AM EDT)
KING OF PRUSSIA, Pa., July 29 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- GSI Commerce Inc. is the second most frequently selected e-commerce technology and services provider across multiple categories, according to research published by Internet Retailer in its most recent Top 500 Guide. Out of the more than 500 services and solution providers mentioned in the guide, GSI is listed as the provider of choice more often than all but one other company -- nearly 200 times across the 18 e-commerce applications and service categories researched. The company listed most often is Web analytics provider Omniture Inc., which has been an alliance partner of GSI since 2005. The Top 500 Guide, which is published annually, profiles and provides comprehensive analysis of the nation's largest 500 online retailers.
"GSI has ranked as a leading provider in the Top 500 Guide for a number of years, which is a testament to our consistent delivery of a range of e-commerce solutions and services that drive business for our partners," said Fiona Dias, executive vice president of partner strategy and marketing for GSI. "Securing the number two spot this year highlights GSI's success developing deep and strategic partnerships with many of the leading online retailers. Given the breadth of services we provide, we're in a unique position to further expand our reach. For example, with our recent acquisition of leading e-mail services provider e-Dialog, we significantly expanded our e-mail marketing offerings to top retailers in the United States and Europe."
According to Internet Retailer, in aggregate the Top 500 retailers accounted for a total of $101.7 billion, of the nation's $166 billion in online retail sales in 2007 and grew their online sales by 21.6 percent. GSI provides services and solutions in nearly every one of the 18 categories measured by the guide. Of these categories, GSI is named the leader or runner up in six categories based on frequency of use among the Top 500 online retailers. They are: content management, customer relationship management, customer service, fulfillment, order management, and site design.
The top three e-commerce application and service providers will be listed by Internet Retailer in its August issue.

The Internet Retailer family of products focuses on the Internet's vital role in a wide array of retailing activities, including Web merchandising, supply chain management and multichannel integration.
