Independent Study Shows 117% ROI for MarketLive E-Commerce Platform

'Total Economic Impact' Research Measures ROI, TCO and Pay-Back Period for Deploying MarketLive's Commerce Technology

PETALUMA, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/12/14 -- MarketLive, the leading Total Commerce platform for high-growth merchants, today announced the results of a commissioned study conducted by Forrester Consulting which measured the real-world risks and total financial returns for a merchant deploying MarketLive's e-commerce platform.

'The Total Economic Impact™ Of MarketLive's Total Commerce Platform' study evaluated MarketLive's customer deployments and documented a three year return-on-investment (ROI) of 117 percent and an internal rate-of-return (IRR) of 184 percent. Customer interviews revealed that 15 percent of the increase in both online sales and in-store kiosk sales could be attributed directly to MarketLive.

The interviewed customer estimates that the total cost of ownership (TCO) for MarketLive's SaaS service is 20 percent lower than on-premise technology with similar capabilities, and the pay-back period -- including the deployment costs such as implementation, internal labor and initial professional services -- is just 8 months.

"Given the increasing sophistication that enterprises have regarding ROI analyses related to IT investments, Forrester's TEI methodology serves to provide a complete picture of the total economic impact of purchase decisions," according to the study. "MarketLive's Total Commerce Platform is a highly flexible eCommerce software-as-a-service (SaaS) solution that can be used both online and in-store."

"Through live load tests performed after each major upgrade and with our planned volume, MarketLive has consistently maintained our site's performance and uptime during seasonal peaks," added the CIO of the MarketLive customer interviewed for the study.

Three Year Risk-Adjusted Results Summary

  • ROI: 117%
  • IRR: 184%
  • TCO: 20% lower
  • Payback: 8 months

For organizations that have amassed large sums of software complexity, taking a microservices approach is the first step toward DevOps and continuous improvement / development.

DevOps and microservices are permeating software engineering teams broadly, whether these teams are in pure software shops but happen to run a business, such Uber and Airbnb, or in companies that rely heavily on software to run more traditional business, such as financial firms or high-end manufacturers. Microservices and DevOps have created software development and therefore business speed and agility benefits, but they have also created problems; specifically, they have created software securi...
