Digital River Named SIIA CODiE Award Finalist for Best Business Technology Pivot

Business transformation earns nod from industry leaders

MINNEAPOLIS – May 24, 2022 – Digital River, an experienced global commerce enabler for fast-growing brands, today announced it was named a 2022 SIIA CODiE Award finalist in the category of Best Business Technology Pivot. CODiE finalists represent the best products, technologies and services in software, information and business technology. According to the SIIA CODiE Awards, this category recognizes the companies that “best adapted their business model over the past year by creating new value, exceeding customer and employee support, and evolving with the rapid shift in environment.”

Digital River has transformed from a full-stack, high-touch provider of ecommerce services to a headless model, putting brands back in charge of what they do best, managing the buyer experience. At the same time, Digital River developed new, agile APIs to manage and quickly scale back-office operations, including payments, taxes, fraud, compliance, and logistics – all core features of Digital River’s Merchant of Record business model.

Digital River also developed an extensive partner ecosystem of leading ecommerce platforms. Together, with a single, seamless integration, we deliver our clients unmatched expertise, technology and critical front and back-office support in markets around the world.

With Digital River, clients can now:

  • Ship from more than 240 markets worldwide, including China and Japan
  • Sell B2B or B2C, physical or digital, onshore or cross-border
  • Deploy Drop-in Checkout, which allows brands to quickly accept payments and ensure global compliance without extensive investment in development

The SIIA CODiE Awards, the long-running, premier awards program for the software and information industries are produced by the Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA), the principal trade association for the software, education, media and digital content industries. Digital River was picked as one of 137 finalists across 43 business categories in a talent-packed field of nominees.

“The 2022 CODiE Award finalists highlight the products and people who drove their industries forward through innovative products and leadership in these uncertain times,” said SIIA President Jeff Joseph. “These honorees continue the proud tradition of CODiE Award finalists of recognizing the most impactful products, services and leaders of their time, setting a foundation for the next generation of innovators. Congratulations to all who received this well-earned acknowledgment.”

“It’s gratifying that industry peers have recognized not just the hard work that went into this pivot, but also its value,” said Digital River’s CEO, Adam Coyle. “Global brands are looking for a simple, and easy way to access global markets, while at the same time maintaining control over their customer experience and increasing their agility to meet evolving customer expectations into the future.”

The SIIA CODiE Awards are the industry’s only peer-recognized awards program. Finalists are determined by industry experts. CODiE Award winners will be announced during the virtual winner announcement celebrations on June 8 and June 9, 2022.
