CHICAGO and CINCINATTI -- itelligence and Gorilla Group today announced the availability of Gorilla's hybris Catalyst, a new turnkey omni-channel B2B commerce solution designed to streamline the integration between hybris and SAP® enterprise business applications.

Gorilla's hybris Catalyst also introduces an efficient development methodology to personalize the brand and buying experience to provide our clients a best-in-breed commerce solution.

"By complementing exceptional SAP and hybris technology with the extensive expertise of the Gorilla and itelligence teams, we are fully able to implement end-to-end commerce solutions within compressed timeframes to help drive growth."
Gorilla Group and itelligence formed a strategic partnership earlier this year, both seeking to leverage their combined wealth of respective experience with ecommerce and SAP solutions to offer customers effective and affordable ecommerce solutions. Gorilla's hybris Catalyst offering is the first combined solution release from the two companies.
"The Gorilla hybris Catalyst represents an exciting top-end sales opportunity to our customers by providing their partner and customer networks a consumer-grade, e-buying experience on a global scale," said Mark Mueller, chief innovation officer at itelligence, Inc. "We're eager to begin offering customers the ability to expand their selling channels with this customizable, turnkey hybris solution that integrates with SAP solutions."
"Today's increasingly complex omni-channel world represents both a challenge and an opportunity for the enterprise," explained Kevin Harris, director of Channel, Americas, at hybris. "B2B customers now demand functionality that matches their online consumer experiences and increasingly expect to be able to seamlessly interact through any medium. To keep ahead of the market and adapt quickly to the changing behaviors of their customers, B2B organizations need to implement solutions that support rapid innovation and experimentation. Gorilla's hybris Catalyst gives businesses the power to do just this and to bring their omni-channel commerce offerings to market at a speed which will keep their competition on the back foot."
