CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwire - Nov 17, 2011) - EPiServer, a leading provider of web content solutions, today announced that Gartner, Inc. has positioned it in the Visionaries quadrant of the Magic Quadrant for Web Content Management* report.

"EPiServer's innovation is rooted deeply in our mission to ensure strong business results for our customers and partners. We understand the need for personalized, measurable interaction across multiple channels as the web evolves from simple sites towards an ecosystem of content and community," said Martin Henricson, CEO of EPiServer. "We believe Gartner's evaluation reaffirms EPiServer's commitment to our ecosystem strategy."

EPiServer considers its recognition in the report a testament to the organization's approach to increasing the functionality of its products to exceed expectations in a swiftly developing market. With the introduction of the company's MobilePack, a set of templates and software for creating mobile web applications that drive users' online engagement with businesses, EPiServer gave its customers a chance to interact with familiar and intuitive tools taking into account that as more people connect with organizations through mobile devices, this kind of infrastructure will become increasingly important.

The platform offering helps companies create online relationships with its customers, better understand customer behavior, engage with customers on the social Web and identify improvements to e-commerce processes that seamlessly turn Web site visitors from "browsers" into "buyers."
