Minneapolis, Minnesota – (The Hosting News) – February 11, 2009 – Global e-commerce and web hosting outsourcing provider, Digital River, Inc., is presenting at the Thomas Weisel Partners Technology and Telecom Conference 2009 in San Francisco, California, at The Fairmont San Francisco, through February 11, 2009.
Digital River’s CFO, Tom Donnelly, discussed the company’s business strategy during his presentation. A live webcast as well as a replay of Digital River’s presentation is available.
Earlier this month, the company expanded its relationship with Adobe Systems Incorporated, instituting a new business-to-business (B2B) e-store to support Adobe’s North American volume licensing purchases.
The site, managed by Digital River, applies points-based volume pricing based on the number and kind of Adobe products purchased online in a single transaction.
Joel Ronning, Chief Executive Officer for Digital River remarked, ”We have worked with Adobe for a number of years and are pleased to further expand our relationship. Adobe’s new site showcases an innovative strategy for extending e-commerce into business-to-business volume licensing scenarios. Other companies that want to launch e-stores for business transactions can look to this site as a model for their own initiatives.”
The store, located at www.adobe.com/go/volumestore, offers popular desktop products, such as Adobe Creative Suite, Adobe Flash, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Acrobat, Adobe ColdFusion, Adobe Dreamweaver and Adobe Illustrator. To provide B2B customers added flexibility and convenience, these products, as well as other Adobe applications, can be purchased through a licensing program that requires no minimum order size, program membership or historical point accrual.
Katie Keating, Vice President, worldwide e-commerce and Americas channels for Adobe noted, ”With this licensing program, we make it even more convenient for our B2B customers to easily purchase the Adobe applications they rely on. This new e-commerce site will play a vital role in increasing participation in our volume license program while requiring minimal administrative overhead on our part, thanks to our Digital River e-commerce solution.”
