Neto Wins Best Ecommerce Platform at the 2018 NORA Awards

31 Oct 2018 4 min read

We are absolutely honoured to have been recognised as the Best Ecommerce Platform by the National Online Retailers Association (NORA) at their inaugural Solution Provider Excellence Awards.

In its first year, the NORA awards are a celebration of the contribution of solution providers to the retail industry.

NORA founder, Paul Greenberg, founded the awards after realising that although we often celebrate the success of our retailers through different awards, there was nothing to recognise the solution providers.

The NORA Solution Provider Excellence Awards goes right to the core of what NORA does: we celebrate success in our exciting retail ecosystem. The only difference this time is that instead of celebrating our retailers, we’re shining the spotlight on the incredible solution providers that drive our industry forward.

Unlike many other awards that use a panel of judges to assess the finalists, the NORA awards puts the power in the hands of the retailers themselves. More than 2,500 retailers voted for their favourite supply chain, payments, professional services, data, security, ecommerce and marketplace platforms and the voting was overseen by NORA’s Advisory Board including the CEO of the National Retailers Association, Dominique Lamb; QUT Creative Enterprise Australia, Ben Sharp; Prof. Sean Sands of Swinburne University of Technology; and Assoc. Prof. Gary Mortimer of the Queensland University of Technology.

Neto: Best Ecommerce Platform

As the only retail and wholesale management platform that provides a complete solution for Ecommerce, Point of Sale (POS), inventory and fulfillment, Neto's integrated back-end technology enables retailers and merchants deliver an exceptional and consistent customer experience via any channel, whether it be in a physical store, online or via marketplaces such as eBay, Catch or Amazon. Winning the award for Best Ecommerce Platform is a great honour and affirmation of this and our deep understanding of our customers. Neto CEO, Ryan Murtagh said,

"At Neto everything we do centres around our customers. We obsess over their success and know that we are only truly successful when they are successful. This award is essentially a ‘retailers’ choice’ award as the voting was cast by actual retailers. As such, it’s an incredible honour and acknowledgement by our customers of the talented and hard-working team at Neto."

“We always innovate through a customer lens and ensure every merchant and retailer on our platform has access to the latest information on how to be grow and scale in a constantly changing digital environment. We essentially strive to create a world where retail runs itself.”
