hybris, a leading provider of multichannel commerce and communication software, today announced the availability of hybris 4.6 with Omni Commerce Connect (OCC). Offering a broad set of commerce and data services, OCC enables users to leverage the complete hybris Multichannel Suite functionality anywhere in an existing application landscape. Its new functionalities help merchants overcome the three fundamental commerce challenges: speed of innovation outside of their organization, channel-driven processes that fail to scale and process-heavy IT.
According to a recent report by Forrester1, the open Web will result in a second web economy that will eclipse the first Internet economy in size and scope. Fueled by companies such as Apple, Samsung, Facebook and Foursquare, speed of innovation is progressing at a staggering rate.
“With the incredible growth in innovation, customer adoption is on a rapid rise, which includes consumers and buyers purchasing from other enterprises,” said Ariel Lüdi, CEO of hybris. “This causes commerce challenges to be magnified and exposed by demanding customers who are empowered with new devices, better know-how about the competition, and knowledge made available by the Internet. Enterprises of any kind are simply struggling to keep up with the exponential growth of customer touch points.”
The hybris OCC is a new machine-to-machine interface, helping merchants mitigate these challenges in the following ways:
In addition to OCC, hybris 4.6 also includes enhanced search and navigation to assist with merchandising and drive sales. hybris supports leading search engines and 4.6 delivers out-of-the-box integration with Google Commerce Search. This enables retail organizations to deliver Google’s latest innovations in search and navigation technology with an experience tailored specifically to online product discovery.
