Implementing a third-party online marketplace is a true business transformation, giving retailers, manufacturers, distributors and group purchasing organizations alike the tools they need to scale with agility. Mirakl’s best-of-breed platform enables that transformation, offering a turnkey solution that seamlessly connects with existing eCommerce solutions to handle all of the complexities of launching and scaling an online marketplace.
But Mirakl’s customers gain much more than the leading marketplace technology platform when they become Platform Pioneers. Every one of Mirakl’s 250+ customers taps into our unmatched ecosystem of expert partners working in 40+ countries across the globe to help organizations launch and scale their marketplaces – and ultimately thrive in the new digital-first economy.
Today, we’re proud to announce a new way to identify the expert partners who are best equipped to help you implement a Mirakl-powered Marketplace for your business. Our new Developer Certification program offers the only official professional designation for individuals who have demonstrated expertise on the Mirakl platform.
The program is open to any individual who works with the Mirakl software, whether as a customer or a member of a partner organization. A select group of individuals from leading Mirakl partners, including BORN Group, Deloitte Digital, e2y, McFadyen Digital, Optaros by MRM, Pragiti, and Seidor, have already become certified.
“Deloitte Digital is committed to supporting our clients as they develop a new vision for digital commerce, through both business transformation and technology enablement," said Brady Emerson, Manager, Deloitte Consulting. "By building a team of Mirakl Certified Integrators, we’re showing just how seriously we take that commitment.”
Laurent Christen, CEO, e2y, an NTT Company echoed that sentiment: “At e2y, we’ve built our business on outstanding digital commerce and marketplace experiences. Since e2y is known for quality and technical expertise, we jumped at the chance to have our staff earn the Mirakl Certification.”
Individuals become Certified by Mirakl by taking a certification exam, either following the completion of Mirakl’s Integrating Mirakl 1 course or as a standalone test. But the certification doesn’t last forever. We’re constantly refining the Mirakl platform in order to continue delivering best-in-class features and functionality for our customers – and individuals who are Mirakl Certified must re-certify each year to maintain their expertise.
“We’re proud to be among the first to have Mirakl Certified Integrators on our team,” said Tom McFadyen, CEO of McFadyen Digital. “Four years of partnership with Mirakl and many successful joint marketplace launches across three continents provided the McFadyen team with the deep technical and business experience to earn this Mirakl certification.”
Mirakl’s Developer Certification exam builds on its growing library of educational courses and trainings, which are dedicated to helping members of the Mirakl ecosystem enhance their understanding of the Mirakl platform. And for customers in the midst of their own marketplace projects, an expert-level understanding of the platform is critical.
“Marketplaces disrupt traditional business models, and operators need a unique set of technical and strategic skills to be successful,” said Philippe Corrot, co-founder and CEO, Mirakl. “That's why organizations choose Mirakl: we offer both the best-of-breed marketplace solution on the market and the expertise to back it up. With this new certification program, it’s even easier for our customers to hire the most qualified marketplace experts in our partner ecosystem.”
Echoing Corrot, Samer Shehadeh, Global eCommerce and Innovation Director, ABB Electrification said, “ABB Electrification’s marketplace ambitions are high, and our implementation partners offer critical support and expertise as we scale our marketplace strategy globally. Knowing that our partners have invested in Mirakl Certification for their staff gives us even more confidence in the success of our marketplace expansion.”
Whether you’re an individual looking to establish your expertise on the Mirakl platform, part of a Mirakl partner organization, or a Mirakl customer interested in the Developer Certification process, connect with the Alliances team today to learn more – and become among the first to become Mirakl Certified.
