The first ecommerce site to go live on Demandware will be that of the Reitmans division, with others to follow.

"After a thorough evaluation of ecommerce platforms, we selected Demandware because it combines a standards-based development environment that empowers our team to build and launch sites on our own, superb merchandising functionality and the operational benefits of on-demand delivery," said Diane Randolph, vice president and CIO, Reitmans. "We want to focus on ecommerce innovation and revenue growth and see no benefit to owning the infrastructure."

With Demandware, Reitmans will be able to extend the reach of all of its brands with a scalable ecommerce platform that is designed to capitalize on emerging consumer trends," said Tom Ebling, CEO of Demandware.
