Announcing eTail’s First Annual Rising Stars!

eTail, the multi-channel conference from which this blog was sprouted, has this year decided to recognize some technology providers who are true innovators in our industry. We’re thrilled to roll out the red carpet for eCommerce’s “Rising Stars.” These are the companies that the eTail community feels have the leading-edge in value, performance and service excellence and are helping retailers advance their cause.

Some of the business partners listed aren’t “rising” per se, but are already Super Stars! In any case, we wanted to ask our industry who they felt should be recognized. Below is the list of highly esteemed service providers that come recommended by retailers to you.

But before you get to the list, we want to know that we are still compiling recommendations. There are so many creative companies out there working hard to make the digital world easier, and we want to recognize them all. Read to the bottom to see how and why you should submit your recommendation (hint: there’s a treat in it for those of you who submit!)
