Building on Each Other’s Strengths

At Brilliance, we are excited to see this merger. We became an Episerver partner in 2013, after a search for an enterprise level platform with a strong feature set for both content management and eCommerce. With an intuitive user interface, integrated personalization features, and an underlying architecture that supports customizations to fit our clients business rules, we fell in love with Episerver. 

Episerver is a bit of a hidden gem in the United States. Gartner positioned Episerver and Ektron as a Visionaries in the Magic Quadrant for Web Content Management in 2013 and 2014. Episerver wasn’t as well known as Ektron in the United States. Episerver is a market leader in Europe, awareness for Episerver building more slowly in the United States. Founded in Sweden in 1994, they opened their US office in 2009. Ektron was founded in 1998 in the United States. Ektron customers can benefit from Episerver’s technical offerings, and Episerver can benefit from Ektron’s presence in the United States.

Brilliance has made a commitment to the Episerver platform, as evidenced by the recent certification of one of our team members on both Episerver Commerce and CMS. We are excited about Episerver’s product roadmap. We believe it offers strong features for B2B Commerce and for other companies serious about using content and commerce together. To that end, Brilliance developed Catalyst for Episerver enabling companies to reduce the time and money involved in implementing Episerver Commerce.

We don’t know everything that is ahead, but we look forward to serving both Episerver and Ektron communities with our B2B eCommerce expertise.
