Apptive, the Austin-based mobile commerce app creation and management platform, today announced its new integration with Magento, an eBay Enterprise company. Apptive’s direct integration gives Magento customers the ability to expand their mobile commerce strategy with an affordable and user-friendly native mobile commerce app.

“At Kiki La’Rue, we’ve found many of our customers are women constantly on-the-go – from running their households to running a company. The ability to provide them with a cutting-edge mobile solution for shopping has given them the ultimate buying power. They can buy fun, fashionable attire from any place on the planet, at any time, on any device,” says Ben Clark, Kiki La’Rue owner, Apptive and Magento customer.

Apptive’s drag and drop app creation and management solution allows merchants to build a feature-rich native mobile app in minutes with no coding required. End customers can browse and buy products directly from the apps without additional management from store owners. The apps also provide native-only functionality, such as push notification messages and deals, which mobile websites cannot deliver. This integration with Magento furthers Apptive’s mission to make app creation a reality for all eCommerce merchants, large and small.

“As the number of purchases made through mobile devices continues to increase dramatically, it’s more important than ever for eCommerce merchants to offer a complete mobile presence to their customers. We’re very excited to be working with Magento to offer their merchants an optimized mobile commerce app solution to drive sales and engagement for their stores through smartphones and tablets,” says Chris Belew, Apptive CEO.

Magento is the largest open-source ecommerce platform in its industry. It offers flexible and scalable solutions for merchants to have control over the design and functionality of their online store.
