Battle of the Apps Contest Highlights Applications and Plug-ins that Enhance the Infusionsoft User Experience
(Chandler, Ariz. – May 7, 2014) - Infusionsoft, creator of the leading sales and marketing software for small businesses, today announces Revenue Conduit as the Kick Apps Champion in the 2014 Battle of the Apps competition. Revenue Conduit was chosen because it helps Infusionsoft customers integrate their application with popular e-commerce platforms. The annual contest held every year at the ICON small business conference honors innovative and meaningful solutions created for Infusionsoft users.
Revenue Conduit was built from the ground up to quickly and seamlessly integrate commonly used online shopping carts with Infusionsoft. The app allows users to sell through their ecommerce platform while easily syncing to Infusionsoft so they can take data-driven actions that help them grow sales.
Once marketing campaign data rolls in, Revenue Conduit automatically segments customers based on their actions. For example, the last time they purchased a product or how many times they purchased. Revenue Conduit currently integrates Infusionsoft with Magento, Shopify, BigCommerce and Volusion with more carts being added soon.
Marc Chesley, CTO
“Our partners deeply understand the needs of Infusionsoft users and never stop exploring what extra value they can add to help our small business customers be more successful. This year’s 2014 Battle of the Apps Kick Apps Champion, Revenue Conduit, is delivering big value to our customers that sell online. Every year I have high expectations for what these innovators can do to further small business success, and every year our developer partners far exceed my expectations.”
Daniel Kurt, Co-Founder & President
“We started Revenue Conduit because we wanted to help small business online retailers integrate their shopping carts with Infusionsoft easily and affordably. We’re entrepreneurs ourselves, so we understand that running an online store is hard. The integration between Revenue Conduit and Infusionsoft makes it simple for online retailers to automatically market to their prospects and customers based on where they came from, what they are interested in and how engaged they are. We make shopping cart data actionable inside Infusionsoft, and the end result is more customers, more revenue and more customer retention. We are honored to be named the 2014 Battle of the Apps champion, and we are lucky to be a part of the passionate and driven developer community Infusionsoft has created.”
