Our Best Solution Award honors OXID eShop 4 implementations of partners, developers and community members. The jury will evaluate an online store’s technology, design, marketing, appearance and target group focus. Last year, edeka24.de, bellobene.de and woonio.de were awarded with the prize.
Submit a Solution – Deadline is Tomorrow
So far, most of the applications have been made in the category Enterprise Edition. If you’re up for suggesting your shop solution based on OXID eShop Community Edition, then do not hesitate to submit it for the best solution award (German).
Details on Partner Day
The award ceremony will take place during our upcoming Partner Day. At Partner Day, we’ll discuss topics such as the OXID ecosystem, which comprises clients, users, partners and developers. Other topics include product management, sales and partner management.
The German press release about the Partner Day includes a nice quote from our CEO Roland Fesenmayr that outlines the benefits of Open Source and a partner network. Here’s the translation:
There is a higher degree of innovation in commercial open source than at pure proprietary providers. As a software vendor, we feel obliged to do what is best for the ecosystem to keep the innovation going. Innovation and the ecosystem are the basis for further growth and for expanding into areas like mobile and social commerce. The future belongs to shopping cart systems that are extremely extendable and can be tailored to fit the business model of the merchant.
Partners, developers and OXID staff will present innovative shopping cart implementations and exchange developing approaches. Sandro Groganz, Founder and Principal of Initmarketing, will present a talk in German, entitled „The Power of the Community for the Enterprise Business“.
The OXID Partner Day 2010 starts at 9 AM, October 26th. The evening will be spent with a networking party kicking off at 8 PM. Learn more about the OXID Partner Day (German).
