With Demandware, we have a flexible commerce platform that supports all of our global brands and enables us to quickly generate consumer demand with new offers and campaigns across multiple digital touchpoints," said Julie Bauer, Senior Vice President of Digital and Global eCommerce for Guthy-Renker.

A centralized platform for developing and managing multiple branded sites across channels, including web, mobile and social
A comprehensive, growth-oriented solution that includes all the capabilities to quickly expand across new brands, geographies and channels
