Monsoon Commerce recently announced that it has acquired the order and customer management software company Stone Edge Technologies Inc. for an undisclosed amount.
Monsoon Commerce is a provider of eCommerce solutions for retailers and the acquisition was conducted to increase Monsoon’s customer offerings by giving online merchants access to Stone Edge’s shopping cart software, order management and supply chain technology.
The acquisition also gives Stone Edge users access to Monsoon offerings by helping retailers to sell through a variety of other marketplaces, such as Amazon and eBay.
Stone Edge works with a number of the best eCommerce solutions such as Miva Merchant, Volusion, and 3D cart and they work with over 2,500 web, store, and catalog merchants, including a dozen online merchants in the Internet Retailer Top 500 Guide.
Stone Edge has services that are compatible with over 50 online shopping carts. Barney Stone, the president and founder of Stone Edge, says there has been a growing interest from customers for solutions that will help increase sales on major online marketplaces like Amazon and eBay. The company’s suite of products and services provided by Monsoon Commerce addresses this growing demand.
Stone Edge’s Order Manager was designed to help sellers who are organizing both incoming and outgoing orders. The automated order processing system lets merchants manage everyday tasks such as backorders and even handling returns from customers.
Monsoon will be implementing Stone Edge’s Order Manager tool to its Seller Solutions business group. This group has helped over 20,000 online retailers to sell more than $450 million worth of goods in 2010.
This acquisition is sure to impress merchants already employing Monsoon’s software as well as bring in some new online retailers who are looking for one-stop shopping.
