WOBURN, Mass. – January 21, 2009 – Demandware, developer of the only enterprise-class on-demand ecommerce platform, will host a webinar with FitForCommerce, a leading ecommerce consulting firm. Together, the companies will offer retailers actionable advice on fine-tuning their ecommerce strategies for the current economic climate. During this live webinar, Danielle Savin, a leading industry consultant and former ecommerce executive at Playboy Enterprises and Frederick's of Hollywood, will review areas where retailers can fine-tune, adapt and optimize programs to overcome the challenges of a down economy.
While cutting back on programs now may result in short-term cost savings, it also results in the longer term problem of increased customer attrition. Consumers don't stop spending during a recession, but they do make their purchasing decisions more carefully. Now is the time for retailers to increase their marketing prowess and capture market share. Rather than cutting programs, identify areas to fine-tune to obtain the same or better results for less money.

In 1Q 2009, FitForCommerce will launch FitBase, the ecommerce markets first knowledge base for best practices, expert and community advice, and solution provider details.
