Company will power stronger ecommerce performance within its DXP and broaden its global client and support base as a result of this strategic acquisition

DENVER–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Crownpeak, a leading digital experience platform (DXP), today announced the closing of the acquisition of United Kingdom-based Attraqt, following regulatory approval.

Attraqt is a leading provider of SaaS solutions that powers exceptional product discovery experiences for top brands and retailers globally. Attraqt’s omnichannel AI-powered product search, merchandising, and recommendation software to the ecommerce sector will broaden Crownpeak’s composable digital experience product offerings.

The Attraqt acquisition follows Crownpeak’s October 2022 acquisition of ilumino, a digital accessibility services company. Adding Attraqt’s capabilities continues Crownpeak’s commitment to bring more robust and relevant digital experiences for its customers and their end consumers.

Crownpeak will continue scaling through additional strategic acquisitions to deliver critical, impactful tools for our global clients and partners.”

The acquisition expands Crownpeak’s global strength with Attraqt’s concentration of business in the UK, Germany, and France. It complements Crownpeak’s significant enterprise customer base that includes Bosch, Asics, Blanco, and Daimler.

Combining Crownpeak’s powerful tools that create inclusive, omnichannel experiences with speed and simplicity for top global organizations worldwide with Attraqt’s leading ecommerce product discovery solutions used by more than 300 of the world’s leading brands, manufacturers, and retailers makes this an exciting opportunity for both businesses,” said Mark Adams, CEO of Attraqt. “Both customer bases can now realize a unified approach to drive content-driven commerce experiences across all digital channels.”
