Regarding Kibo, Forrester acknowledged in its report that, “It continues to bring more functionality ‘under the tent’ of the platform” and that “Kibo has strengths in product vision and supporting products and services, as it now has unified functions from its acquisitions and shares them between products in its platform.” Additionally, “Kibo is strong in front-end management, reporting and analytics, and order and inventory management.”

- Reporting and analytics

“We are proud to be named the leader by Forrester in their B2C Commerce Solutions evaluation,” said Allison Dancy, CMO at Kibo. “Our overall vision for Kibo eCommerce has resulted in a strong headless, unified platform that brings together sophisticated features built with our clients’ needs in mind. Kibo helps our customers provide engaging omnichannel shopping experiences across all channels in a modular, API-first approach. We pride ourselves on usability, and we are thrilled to be recognized by Forrester for our expertise in B2C commerce solutions.”
According to the Forrester report, for B2C digital businesses, “Modular, cloud-native commerce solutions are no longer just for the most digitally mature companies. In fact, modern commerce tech is more adaptive and provides resilience for the digital businesses that use it. Retailers and digital direct-to-consumer businesses are strapped for staff, forced to move faster than ever, and heavily reliant on technology.”
