Mobile commerce platform leader named as Branding Brand

Forrester Research has stated that the company has been “ranked as the leader” in its sector.

Branding Brand, the mobile commerce platform provider that is growing the most rapidly in the world, has now also been named as a leader in its industry according to the global independent research firm, Forrester Research, Inc.

The firm released a report that named Branding Brand as the leading provider.

The name of the report was “The Forrester Wave™: Mobile Commerce Solutions Providers, Q4, 2013.” The report indicated that the scores that were earned by the Branding Brand mobile commerce platform were the highest when compared to the rest of the competition. The firm was able to receive the top scores for market presence as well as its current offerings. It stood out as having a strong and rapidly growing retail client base. It also concentrated notably on pushing innovation, and has a powerful technology platform.

The firm made itself notably different as a mobile commerce platform, well beyond being a tech provider.

Mobile Commerce Report - Leader PickedThe company’s clients have noted a particular preference for the firm’s hands on consulting for smartphone based shopping as well as insight for retail that is made available. Also identified as high in value were the company’s responsiveness to client ideas and its program’s management skills. Outside of a solid consumer facing smartphone and tablet apps and web, the company has also done very well in increasing its installed base among its existing client base in order to expand on its offerings. This is especially true in the area of associate clientele applications and in-store kiosks.

The report explained that the company has focused its attention on becoming a solid platform instead of “doing bespoke client implementations”. When compared to its competition, its efforts with its platform have given it the ability to quickly develop and create new innovations in the mobile sphere, such as Passbook, across its complete client base, without racking up a large bill.

According to the co-founder of Branding Brand, Chris Mason, who is also its CEO, the company is proud to know that it is a mobile commerce platform provider leader, adding that “Now, it is our responsibility to continue innovating and earn this honor every day.”
