Pivotree Achieves AWS Retail Competency Status
Pivotree has achieved an AWS Retail Competency Consulting Partner designation. AWS Retail Competency Consulting Partners offer strategy and deployment services to retailers, to help accelerate their digital transformation.
LAS VEGAS, Nevada December 4, 2019 – Pivotree, a leading Global Commerce and MDM Services Provider, announced today, at the AWS re:Invent Global Partner Summit in Las Vegas, that it has achieved Amazon Web Services (AWS) Retail Competency status.
AWS Retail Competency Partners undergo rigorous validation by AWS to ensure alignment to AWS best practices for building secure, high-performing, resilient, and efficient cloud infrastructure for industry applications – to give customers an increased confidence when making decisions.
Achieving the AWS Retail Competency differentiates Pivotree as an AWS Partner Network (APN) member that delivers highly specialized technical proficiency. To receive the AWS Competency designation, APN Partners must possess deep AWS expertise and deliver solutions seamlessly on AWS.
Pivotree has been an APN Partner for almost 5 years, helping many large retailers move their ecommerce and master data management solutions to the cloud in order to gain rapid scale and reliability. Over those years, Pivotree has developed a best practice methodology in how to both migrate to the cloud and how to leverage native cloud functionality to optimize application performance.
“The Pivotree team is immensely proud to achieve AWS Retail Competency status,” said Greg Wong, CRO of Pivotree. “This designation recognizes our team’s dedication to helping companies achieve their technology goals across a broad spectrum of KPIs. By leveraging the agility, breadth of services, and pace of innovation that AWS provides, we deliver on our brand promise to Adapt Relentlessly.”
Pivotree helped clients realize cost savings and stability, faster ticket resolution than with previous managed services providers, and overall higher efficiency in support due to Pivotree’s end-to-end Commerce services and support model. Their long-term experience with retail means they understand the industry-specific requirements their clients face, how to manage partnerships, and how to advise clients for retail-specific events such as the holiday season. Due to Pivotree’s ability to extract the most possible value out commerce platforms for clients by utilizing AWS, their clients trust their advice and support for peak seasons and year-round services.
“[Pivotree] was a true partner. They had a very clear plan, but were also pragmatic enough to be flexible when needed without causing setbacks,” said Director of Digital Architecture at DXL, Dasarathy Ponnappan. “They always made us aware of potential problems in advance, and when unforeseen obstacles did arise, they were quick to find creative solutions.”
AWS is enabling scalable, flexible, and cost-effective solutions from startups to global enterprises. To support the seamless integration and deployment of these solutions, AWS established the AWS Competency Program to help customers identify Consulting and Technology APN Partners with deep industry experience and expertise.
