Research Triangle Park, NC – April 19, 2016 – ChannelAdvisor Corporation (NYSE:ECOM), a leading provider of cloud-based e-commerce solutions that enable retailers and branded manufacturers to increase global sales, today announced its 2016 Spring Release.

“We’ve been working on a number of exciting new products and enhancements to continue helping our customers create a favorable consumer experience across sales channels,” said ChannelAdvisor CEO David Spitz. “We’re excited to help branded manufacturers build stronger strategic connections to retailers and equip our customers with the data, analytics and dashboards needed to make smarter decisions when managing their digital marketing campaigns. At our Catalyst Americas conference, we officially announced our strategic partnership with Walmart Marketplace to help facilitate rapid acceleration of sellers and selection on the marketplace.”
