App Development and E-Commerce Firm Signs Partnership Agreement with eBay-Owned Magento

Irish Titan of Minneapolis announced today that it has formalized an agreement with Magento, a leading e-commerce platform and web giant, with more than 100,000 online merchants.

Irish Titan has been utilizing the Magento platform for four years, as a development and e-commerce platform for its online marketing clients, but the agreement underscores the value both groups see in establishing a successful and forward-looking relationship. Irish Titan will continue to build its products on the Magento platform, and Magento in turn will list Irish Titan as a trusted advisory partner and resource.

“Magento is an international organization, and while solution partnerships are common, they have very few in the Midwest,” says Irish Titan Owner and Chief Liberation Officer Darin Lynch. "We’re about business first and online second, and we’re very excited to see what this model and our Magento partnership can do for existing clients as well as new ones.”

“We take great pride in our relationships with web solution firms around the world and know that Irish Titan will continue to create powerful e-commerce products,” said James Williams, Channel Manager at Magento. “One of the key reasons that we formalized our business with Irish Titan is that their relationships with clients start with the client's business goals and strategies and then Irish Titan recommends the appropriate products, not the other way around. They have successfully grown using this practice even in the toughest economic climate in decades and we expect a mutually beneficial arrangement going forward.”
