The Forrester New Wave™ is a premier resource for buyers considering technology in the emerging market over a wide range of software, hardware, and services offerings. The Forrester New Wave™: Marketplace Development Platforms, Q4 2021 report evaluates the emerging market for marketplace management platforms.
Forrester’s evaluation found that “Oro is the best fit for midmarket manufacturers providing one-stop shopping. Oro’s e-Commerce presence in midmarket and smaller enterprises that are working toward scale of sellers makes it well positioned to offer range extension to its ideal client profile.”
In addition, one Oro reference customer stated, “I appreciate Oro’s thought leadership in B2B marketplace selling.”
We are proud to be recognized as a Contender in The Q4 2021 Forrester New Wave for Marketplace Development Platforms. Oro was among the fourteen platforms to be evaluated based on ten assessment criteria. Even though we only started marketing our marketplace solution this year, it already powers numerous major enterprise marketplaces in verticals such as government procurement, manufacturing, and distribution.
