June 2021 Edition
News, insights and information from the rapidly changing world of eCommerce designed for the online merchant!
To paraphrase words from an old popular song – It’s been a long time coming, but I know a change gonna come! And yes that change is on the way and will have an impact on retailers of all types, but especially online retailers. I’m of course speaking of what has been termed “cookiepocolypse.” It’s the loss of availability and access to data currently made available via cookies and other 3rd party tracking which will soon be things of the past.

Founded 98 years ago, the J.G. Edelen Company was founded by James G. Edelen Sr. and is still family-owned today. The company manufactures, imports, and distributes an ever-growing amount of quality hardware products for the furniture and related industries.
In early 2020 J.G. Edelen reached out to Kadro during their search for a new solutions partner. This turned out not to be your typical Adobe Commerce (formally known as Magento Commerce) rescue project.
It’s time to reimagine the commerce experiences of today and tomorrow. This virtual event features tracks covering innovations in the B2B, B2C, hybrid, and direct-to-consumer sectors. Kadro, in conjunction with technology partner dotdigital and our client Boss PetEdge, has an informative session at 3 pm EDT – Migrating your Legacy eCommerce Platform to Adobe Commerce.
