Weld for Episerver will empower marketing and e-commerce departments to do online visual merchandising and create web campaigns in a more agile and cost-effective way. To be able to participate in the beta program for the Episerver App Marketplace, Weld for Episerver had to pass strict design, quality, verification, compliance and support standards to ensure impeccable integrations for purchasers seeking quick extensibility in the form of B2C-like shopping.

“Episerver App Marketplace is mission critical for companies looking to customize their technology stack without the hassle or headaches associated with customization,” said Fredrik Tjärnberg, SVP of technology at Episerver. “While Episerver is an end-to-end digital experience platform, our goal is to offer unparalleled accessibility to the best-of-breed software our customers want to use. To do this, Episerver App Marketplace offers a select-and-succeed model so back-end logic and integration helps engineer show-stopping front-end experiences.”

As an app for Episerver, Weld for Episerver meets business demand for creating content and analyzing its performance, while also saving time, money, and freeing up IT resources.

“Adding Weld as one of the first apps within Episerver App Marketplace speaks to the need for business users to have complete autonomy over what their software platforms do for them as an organization with hyper-specific needs another company, even in their own industry, may not have,” said Karen Chastain, senior director of global alliances at Episerver. “Weld for Episerver is a tremendous value add to the Episerver ecosystem and a powerful way to plug in content creation and use it to grow your business.”

Episerver tests each new application or add on for functionality, security and user-interface; ongoing support is held with Weld.
