MARINA DEL REY, CALIF. (October 27, 2020) - Guidance, a full-service ecommerce agency driving business for retailers, brands and manufactures, announced today that it has been named the Best B2B Excellence Award winner in the Americas in the 2020 BigCommerce Partner Awards, presented by BigCommerce, a leading ecommerce platform for fast-growing and established brands. This annual awards program recognizes top-performing partners among BigCommerce’s global network of more than 2,000 agencies and 800 technology partners for their exceptional work empowering BigCommerce merchants to build, innovate and grow their businesses. The B2B Excellence Award is specifically awarded to agency partners that consistently demonstrate the ability to meet the complex needs of BigCommerce B2B merchants.
“Guidance is extremely honored to be selected for the 2020 BigCommerce Partner Awards, Best B2B Excellence Award, as BigCommerce is a fast-growing and trusted platform partner of Guidance,” said Jason Meugniot, CEO of Guidance. “The Guidance team has extensive experience in the B2B space and we are proud to showcase our excellence through this recognition.”
Out of 17 total categories whose applicants were evaluated by a panel of BigCommerce employees and executives, Guidance was specifically recognized for providing revolutionary solutions and services for brands like Farmer Boy, an innovative agricultural livestock machinery and barn construction solution company, and HeartMath, a comprehensive system of scientifically-based devices, online programs, technologies and coaching to help users self-regulate stress.
Farmer Boy partnered with Guidance for a full replatform, new tech stack, and a complete redesign of its website to tell its brand story in a new and innovative way. Guidance launched a full BigCommerce re-platform of Farmer Boy’s website and integrated an entirely new ecosystem of B2B and B2C solutions, along with a new visual design and UX. Guidance integrated over 12 new ecommerce solutions, including a PIM, an ERP, a visual CMS, and a full checkout and shipping capability. Through this innovation, Farmer Boy has firmly established itself as an omnichannel organization capable of extending its reach far beyond its previous online presence.
Additionally, HeartMath partnered with Guidance for a solution that would meet its complex business requirements for checkout customizations, subscription management, a robust Salesforce integration, and product bundling options, all built on the BigCommerce platform. Backed by BigCommerce, the solution includes multiple complex integrations (including Salesforce), the capacity for bundling products and services, and custom checkout with enhanced shipping logic. Guidance provided HeartMath with the tools to thoroughly manage its customer lifecycle.
