Over the last few years, I’ve worked alongside a number of partners, to help aid projects I’ve been working on around Magento and ecommerce. I’ve worked with agencies, merchandising companies, paid search agencies, search providers, UX / UI professionals, designers, developers, personalisation companies, CRO companies, analysts and lots more.
The companies listed below are those that I’ve rated very highly and have consequently. partnered with.
Nosto are a very highly regarded and widely used personalisation company, with a strong integration for Magento (amongst other platforms). Nosto work with some of the UK’s biggest merchants, including some of my clients and I’d strongly recommend them.
Nosto is considered to be one of the world’s leading personalisation companies and it’s also the fastest-growing.
