2010 Internet Retailer Top 500 Guide Recognizes ATG as Top E-Commerce Platform and Personalization Provider to Leading North American e-Retailers

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. - (AllPayNews) ATG (Art Technology Group, Inc., NASDAQ: ARTG), the premier provider of cross-channel commerce solutions, today announced that more of the e-retailers included in the 2010 Internet Retailer Top 500 Guide® cited ATG as their e-commerce platform and personalization technology partner than any other solution provider.

With 43 companies declaring their e-commerce operations powered by ATG Commerce, this report is an important confirmation of ATG’s e-commerce leadership and expertise. Furthermore, following the acquisition of InstantService earlier this year, the Internet Retailer ranking shows ATG grew its leadership position in the live help market, earning distinction as one of the top providers of live chat and click to call tools.
Internet Retailer’s annual Top 500 Guide, published in May 2010, recognizes those companies with the largest annual online sales and identifies the software and services vendors whose products and technologies power each web store. In total, ATG solutions power the cross-channel commerce programs for retailers with combined total annual sales of $64.1 billion. Further, a large number of merchants included in this year’s guide acknowledged their use of live help services to provide instant access to customer service representative options on their websites. Among those e-retailers, 33 noted their use of the ATG Live Help solution. ATG’s live chat and click to call services power the sites with the highest annual combined web sales ($40.2 billion), according to Internet Retailer’s rankings.

“This year’s Internet Retailer Top 500 Guide provides valuable confirmation of ATG’s industry leadership,” said Nina McIntyre, ATG’s senior vice president and chief marketing officer. “We work with both the biggest brands in retail, as this guide acknowledges, as well as emerging companies with aggressive growth plans, both within North America and worldwide. With over half the Top 500 retail market still running “in house” developed platforms, there is a substantial opportunity as we deepen our market penetration. We are pleased to see additional industry reports such as the Top 500 Guide that recognize our position in both Commerce and live help.”
