Balance Internet received a Magento Global Partner of Excellence Award and was recognised as the leading Magento Solution Partner in Asia Pacific Region at the Magento 2013 Imagine Conference.

Balance Internet received a Partner of Excellence Award and recognition as the leading Magento Solutions Partner in the Asia Pacific Region at the Magneto Imagine Conference held in Las Vegas, NV. from April 8-11, 2013. The award is a result of outstanding performance in 2012 based on quality and quantity of Magento Enterprise deployments, the number of Magento certified developers and exceptional customer satisfaction.

At the conclusion of the 2013 Imagine eCommerce Conference, Magento and its Solution Partners gathered for the 3rd Annual Solution Partner Leadership Summit. The aim of the sum mit is to review 2012 achievements and look forward to the 2013 goals and plans. During this meeting, Magento acknowledged the outstanding performance in 2012 achieved by Balance Internet.

Managing Director of Balance Internet, James Horne, said, We are very proud to be one of the leading Magento partners in the world. We are extremely excited about the launch of Magento 1.13 and working more closely with the eBay family. The Magento 1.13 release has dramatically improved the performance and scalability of the platform. This will lead to faster page load speeds, faster response times, improved database performance and ultimately an increase in sales and conversions for our Australian retail partners. The power of the eBay community and its broad folio of assets, in particular PayPal, brings a unique retailing DNA to the Magento ecosystem.  eBay’s exceptional online retailing pedigree coupled with Magento’s superior ecommerce ability make Magento 1.13 the platform of choice for the Australian retail community.
