Business Catalyst is a hosted (SaaS) all-in-one solution for building and managing business websites. It has sales, service, and marketing features such as eCommerce and Email Marketing tools. The company was founded in 2004 by two Australian entrepreneurs, Bardia Housman and Adam Broadway. It was acquired by Adobe Systems in August 2009.
Business Catalyst's business model differs from others in that they allow web designers to resell their hosted service as part of a "Partner Program".
A reseller channel of paid "Partners" receive specialized tools for site provisioning and management, commissions on hosting fees, live training and in some instances ability to rebrand the platform as their own.
Business Catalyst experimented with a direct-to-customer strategy under the "GoodBarry" brand before the offering was closed down as a part of the Adobe acquisition.
The Business Catalyst platform incorporates features including:
Manage research, learning and skills at defaultLogic. Create an account using LinkedIn or facebook to manage and organize your Digital Marketing and Technology knowledge. defaultLogic works like a shopping cart for information -- helping you to save, discuss and share.
