The Gartner Market Guide for Marketplace Operation Applications (MOA) is out, and – Marketplacer is listed in Representative Vendors in the research.
I believe this is a really valuable guide for any B2B or B2C organization looking to tap into the power of a marketplace, with a pretty thorough snapshot of the sector. According to the report, “Enterprise marketplaces provide many tangible benefits to both B2C and B2B companies. Application leaders can use this Market Guide to understand the complexities of operating a marketplace, which vendors can help them develop a marketplace and what features they should consider.”
“Marketplace operation applications (MOAs) provide the technology to enable enterprise marketplaces by allowing marketplace operators to manage seller onboarding, product catalogs, order routing and management, and seller compliance with marketplace policies”.
“By 2023, 30% of enterprise marketplaces will transition into a majority third-party seller model for better profitability“.
“MOAs need to be tightly integrated with the core digital commerce functionality to offer a seamless experience to customers and for operators and sellers“
