GroupBy and IWD Announce Preferred Partnership

April 16, 2019

TORONTO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Apr 16, 2019--GroupBy Inc., a leading provider of relevancy-focused eCommerce solutions, and IWD, an eCommerce agency specializing in Magento development, today announced a formal partnership. As part of this partnership, retail customers that are leveraging Magento’s eCommerce platform and looking to upgrade their search capabilities can benefit from IWD’s expertise with GroupBy. As well, GroupBy customers utilizing Magento can take advantage of IWD’s knowledge of both platforms for external development.

As a result of GroupBy and IWD’s joint work with their mutual customer QC Supply – a leading livestock, farm, and industrial supplies, workwear and clothing distributor – IWD has built and productized a seamless integration between GroupBy and Magento. By easily consolidating data from a retailer’s product catalog in Magento to GroupBy, future customers will be able to rapidly adopt the GroupBy platform.

“IWD is a trusted development partner of QC Supply. They have expanded their knowledge of the GroupBy platform, and proven to be quite adept at driving an optimal site search experience utilizing GroupBy’s industry-leading search solution,” said Bevin Baker, IT Manager, QC Supply.

GroupBy is the first data-driven individualization platform that engages the consumer on a one-to-one basis while allowing the retailer to influence its shoppers in a non-intrusive or obvious way. GroupBy powers highly relevant and personalized search, recommendations, and SEO tools to help retailers and brands solve some of the toughest user experience pain points in the eCommerce market.

IWD brings over 15 years of eCommerce experience to the partnership, with more than 300 Magento stores built and 30,000 extension customers worldwide. The agency specializes in creating Magento sites that produce a world-class user experience, B2B optimization, performance optimization, SEO marketing, store migration, and ongoing support and maintenance. IWD’s in-house eCommerce designers are experts in creating eCommerce sites that not only impress, but that stays true to its customers’ tastes and values.

“Our experience working with GroupBy has been outstanding. IWD clients utilizing GroupBy have seen a substantial lift in their conversions and have reported to us that the platform has helped them separate themselves from their competition. We have developed our skillset around GroupBy’s technology and are proud to be the company’s go-to partner for retail customers leveraging Magento,” said Kevin Schneider, director of business development, IWD.

“Given IWD’s strong reputation in the Magento community and their experience and knowledge base of the GroupBy platform, it was an easy decision to partner with them as our go-to agency for Magento implementations.
