Spring 2018 Release Update


If you haven't noticed, the team at AmeriCommerce has been making some impressive strides lately and working tirelessly to improve our platform's speed, stability and security while bringing some awesome new capabilities our merchants will love. In the last 6 months, we've seen a 202% increase in total sales and a 256% increase in addon services! By targeting the most common issues experienced by our merchants we've also reduced total incoming support tickets by 47% while also increasing our customer satisfaction ratings by an additional 4%!

We're not stopping there. Since our last release update, we've hit the whiteboards and brought our lunch pails in an effort to kick things into gear for all those loyal customers looking for more.

Welcome to more.

What's Next?

As you can see in our "In Beta" section, the Cloudflare partnership has opened several doors for the future.
