Deck Commerce, a SaaS eCommerce operations platform, announced today the completion of a $2 million round of financing from Arsenal Capital Management (ACM), an early stage venture capital fund based in St. Louis. Pete Reinecke, the Managing Director of ACM, has joined the Deck Commerce Board of Directors. The funding will help the company expand its sales and marketing efforts as well as accelerate product development and customer on-boarding capacity.
“Deck Commerce is quickly becoming recognized in eCommerce operations, which is a key component for new retailing models,” says Reinecke. “This financing, along with insights from several of the investors in our fund, will give management the resources they need to continue their impressive record of innovation and growth.”
Headquartered in St. Louis, Deck Commerce launched in 2015 and is led by Christopher Deck, Founder and CEO. The platform helps businesses compete with eCommerce leaders, such as Amazon, by connecting front-end shopping channels with back-end business systems and streamlining the processes for managing orders, inventory, and product data.
“Technology has changed how consumers shop, resulting in big challenges for retailers as they adapt to new expectations while attempting to leverage existing business systems,” says Deck. “Our platform provides a scalable yet flexible solution that bridges this gap, solving challenges related to order management, inventory optimization, and product information.”
Deck Commerce serves retailers and branded wholesalers investing in digital direct-to-consumer growth strategies. Recently touted by CIO Review Magazine as one of the 20 Most Promising E-Commerce Solution Providers in 2017, Deck Commerce delivers an innovative approach that empowers customers with omni-channel commerce capabilities. Customers include New Balance, Rawlings Sporting Goods, Chinese Laundry, and Warrior.
“This round of funding will enable Deck Commerce to grow our market share and expand our partner program targeting the industry’s top system integrators,” says Deck. “According to Forrester Research, spending on eCommerce technology is projected to reach $2.1 billion by 2019, and Deck Commerce solves key operational challenges within this space.”
