Miva Merchant 9 was released today and we are pleased to share in more detail just what to expect. Our software developers have been working diligently to give you a completely overhauled version of our enterprise-level eCommerce software. This overhaul is the most significant redesign in the history of our software, which has been optimized for speed, efficiency and adds a host of new features.
Based on the positive employee feedback from our Miva family, we were honored with an award at the Union Tribune’s Top Workplaces Honors Ceremony last week. As the Union Tribune announced the ranking of 40 Top Workplaces in San Diego we were thrilled to be granted #15 on the list.
President, Rick Wilson and COO, Nathan Osborne accepted the award on Miva, Inc.‘s behalf at the honors ceremony on November 6th.
Learning a new eCommerce platform is hard. There is no getting around it. New languages, new syntax … it all takes time and hands on experience to go from a complete novice to an eCommerce expert.
Here at Miva, Inc. we think Miva Merchant is the best developer platform available for building eCommerce websites. It has amazing flexibility, unparalleled security and allows you to do anything you can think of. Our goal is to get Miva Merchant in the hands of as many developers as possible. To achieve that goal we knew we needed to make learning how to build Miva Merchant websites and the Miva Template Language much easier. The solution is creating better training tools and documentation.
National Retail Federation has predicted online shopping in the U.S. to rise 15% this year. Consumer Reports also reported that, of those shopping online, half of them will shop solely on the Internet, never setting foot in a department store the entire holiday season. These statistics raise one very important question – Out of nearly half of the U.S. population shopping online, how many actually seal the deal with a purchase?
Creating a positive and exciting work environment starts with company culture. Russ Carroll and Rick Wilson (our CEO and President respectively) take great pride in creating a sense of community amongst all employees at Miva and specifically set out to build a company they’d personally want to work at.
