BOSTON – June 29, 2023 – Akeneo, the Product Experience company, proudly announces today that it has earned the title of Company of the Year in the Retail category at the esteemed 8th Annual 2023 Globee Awards for American Business. 

The awards celebrate organizations that have demonstrated unparalleled performance across various business categories. This distinguished accolade recognizes outstanding accomplishments in customer service, innovation, leadership, and more. With participants ranging from startups to small, medium and large corporations, the awards program embraces organizations of all sizes and industries.

Akeneo secured the coveted title in recognition of the impact that Akeneo Product Cloud has on the retail industry. The category-defining Akeneo Product Cloud is a composable solution that centralizes, enriches and activates every element of the complete product record in order to optimize the product experiences that appear on any customer touch point. It provides retailers, distributors and brands with this centralized system of record for all product information, for every team and every sales channel that collects and activates data to create high-quality product descriptions and information that deliver consistent, compelling and comprehensive product experiences to customers.  

“We are honored to be recognized, as this award highlights the Akeneo Product Cloud for unlocking growth blockers caused by complex product catalogs that need to be distributed to multiple marketing, sales and customer support channels,” said Kristin Naragon, Chief Strategy and Marketing Officer at Akeneo. “We’ve heard from our customers about how chaotic it can be to manage all the different aspects that go into constructing product stories and we’ll continue providing them with innovative products that increase sales, reduce returns and positively disrupt the retail industry.” 

Akeneo Product Cloud was announced with enhanced Product Information Management (PIM) capabilities, a new syndication offering and an App Store, which launched with new apps across a variety of areas, including AI, e-commerce, data enrichment and product catalog publishing. With these offerings, Akeneo helps brands, retailers and distributors activate the entire product record accurately and consistently across all channels, eliminating delays from siloed operations to support and accelerate commerce growth.
