Digital commerce consulting firm SUMO Heavy Industries announced a strategic partnership with leading enterprise e-commerce platform Workarea. Under the newly inked deal, SUMO Heavy will add Workarea's platform to its growing repertoire of digital commerce solutions to better cater to the evolving needs of modern retailers.

Built for a new era of digitally native consumers who expect a seamless journey across all of their devices and platforms, Workarea will enable SUMO Heavy's clients to create rich cross-platform shopping experiences faster with its flexible commerce platform. Workarea brings together commerce, content, search, and merchant insights into a single unified platform to help retailers eliminate existing silos and operate more efficiently, an approach that aligns with SUMO Heavy's core philosophy of helping clients drive "efficiency through process" to increase profitability.

"Every retailer has its own unique set of challenges and business goals, so we custom tailor our digital commerce strategy based on its specific needs, which often means partnering with the best solutions providers across all verticals," said Bart Mroz, co-founder and CEO of SUMO Heavy. "Workarea has demonstrated its commitment to rapidly-growing retail enterprises, so we're thrilled to offer our clients another resource to thrive in an increasingly competitive retail space."

Founded in 2010 by local entrepreneurs Bart Mroz and Robert Brodie, SUMO Heavy has worked with a variety of clients, including both global brands and high-growth retailers like Pitney Bowes, Rogue, Pet360, Stadium Goods, and more. From agile planning and project management to platform migration and organizational digital transformation, SUMO Heavy offers a range of services to help its clients navigate the ever-changing retail space.

"We're very happy to add SUMO Heavy to our list of solution partners," said Darren Hill, CEO and Co-Founder of Workarea. "They've been market leaders for years, have worked on very impressive projects, and have a rich history of innovation. We know that SUMO Heavy will create great commerce experiences for their clients on the Workarea platform."

The partnership with Workarea comes on the heels of its return to Philadelphia and is one of several projects SUMO Heavy has in store for 2019. In addition to rapidly expanding its client base, the company recently announced the opening of a new office in the Old City section of Philadelphia, as well as the relaunch of The Register, a full-length retail podcast that builds on the success of its bite-size retail podcast series The eCommerce Minute.
