Mashery, a leading provider of API management technology and services, recently acquired by Intel Corporation, announced today at SuiteWorld 2013, the availability of a Commerce API Management SuiteApp, built using the NetSuite SuiteCloud Computing Platform.

Forrester predicts that by 2016, U.S. cross-channel sales will be $1.660 trillion and that more than half of all retail sales will be either online or web-influenced(1) . Leading Fortune 500 companies use APIs to grow affiliate programs and reach consumers via mobile and connected devices. With the new Mashery SuiteApp, SuiteCommerce customers can easily create an API platform for partnering and business development by bringing together content from SuiteCommerce with partner functionality such as social ratings, reviews and conversations, social CRM, product data and image syndication, personalized product recommendations, and rich media management. The SuiteApp creates a best-in-class partner experience, and allows customers to manage APIs the way they manage their products.
“In the post-website era, businesses need to be able to provide a rich set of apps that provide customers the right experience on any device, at any moment,” said Oren Michels, CEO of Mashery. “Mashery’s API Management platform currently helps more than a dozen Fortune 500 retailers connect with customers whenever and wherever they want.”
