PETALUMA, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 05/25/10 -- MarketLive, Inc., the leading eCommerce software and service provider for midsized specialty retailers, today announced Perricone MD Cosmeceuticals (www.perriconemd.com), a leader in prestige skincare, has extended its online business with a new mobile eCommerce site built with MarketLive Mobile. The new site reaches mobile shoppers that use smartphones and emerging devices such as the Apple iPhone. By doing so, Perricone MD will capitalize on the phenomenal growth in mCommerce to increase revenues and enhance customer loyalty.
"As smartphone capabilities increase and products such as the iPhone and Android devices come to market, more people will use these platforms to buy online," said Neil Kjeldsen, Vice President of eCommerce for Perricone MD. "Because of these powerful trends, it is critical we enter the mobile market ahead of the curve to drive sales both now, and especially in the future. MarketLive Mobile made it easy for us to give shoppers yet another way to purchase our products in a convenient and compelling way."
Analysts agree the mobile channel is critical for eCommerce.

MarketLive Mobile enables retailers to touch consumers whenever and wherever they may be, and across any device they choose. The application, which renders a device-aware shopping experience, delivers a compelling, feature rich and graphically pleasing storefront and provides a means for retailers to immediately deliver relevant offers, promotions, and products to increase sales and drive business across all channels. MarketLive Mobile also includes advanced analytics that enable retailers to analyze and optimize results.
Using MarketLive Mobile, Perricone MD was able to create a rich and compelling shopping experience for mobile customers in just a few weeks. "MarketLive Mobile allowed us to deliver an engaging shopping experience to our mobile customers in a very reasonable timeframe," added Kjeldsen.
"As the mobile Internet continues to grow at a rapid pace, it is important for online merchants to give customers the ability to buy their products from as many touch points as possible," said Mark Pierce, CEO of MarketLive.
