Digital River, Inc. (Nasdaq:DRIV), a global leader in e-commerce outsourcing,
and Matrix Games (http://www.matrixgames.com),
today announced that the companies expanded their existing e-commerce agreement.
Based on the new agreement, Digital River re-designed, built and recently
launched Matrix Games’ e-commerce site, located at www.matrixgames.com,
to drive targeted traffic and support the online sales of its popular gaming
software. Digital River has also built and launched international e-commerce
operations for Matrix Games, including an online store supporting the company’s
“By managing the online businesses of nearly 35,000 companies worldwide, we
have developed the e-commerce best practices and tools that can help companies
be more strategic and effective at growing their online businesses,” said
Dave Alampi, Digital River’s vice president of marketing. “To help our
clients attract qualified online shoppers from their target markets, we analyze
and track the performance of their sites. Then we work with them to devise plans
that can turn their sites into lucrative sales channels. This often involves
collaborating with our clients to re-design their sites, adding international
e-commerce stores and implementing targeted e-marketing programs.”
Matrix Games’ online store features all of its software game titles, including
Korsun Pocket and Uncommon Valor. To help Matrix Games create a superior online
shopping experience, Digital River is leveraging its international e-commerce
suite to provide site hosting, order management, digital and physical software
delivery, customer service, fraud prevention and supporting multiple payment
options. Online shoppers can purchase Matrix Games’ software using the Euro and
the British Pound Sterling on the company’s new European e-commerce site, and
the U.S., Canadian and Australian dollar on its expanded domestic site. In
addition, customers can select from multiple payment options, including credit
cards, money orders, checks and wire transfers. Digital River’s assorted
functionality gives Matrix Games’ customers the ability to pre-order games
before they are available for shipment.
“In Digital River we have found a business partner that can help us meet
the needs of our expanding domestic and international online business,”
said David Heath, president of Matrix Games. “The company’s relationships
with third-party fulfillment agencies lifted a barrier of entry into the
European market for us. The risk and investment involved in establishing our own
relationships previously were a deterrent. Now with Digital River’s help, we can
cater to our global client base, further establish our international presence
and focus on growing our business.”
