PrestaShop received on Tuesday the Open-Source Award of the best Open-Source E-commerce application, facing 4 other projects, including Magento and OpenCart. Thank you to our Community which supported our software!
This prize, by Packt Publishing, is a real encouragement to our entire team, following the release of the 1.4 Alpha 2 of PrestaShop, a future flagship version, bringing to more than 250 the number of features dedicated to merchants and developers.
"This award is a great recognition for PrestaShop's hardworking team and, of course, the contributors who help us enrich our software every day", says Bruno Lévêque, PrestaShop Co-Founder.
"We are glad to have received this award from both a panel of expert judges and our growing Community -whose members increased threefold in the past year! They have really mobilized to support our project", adds Sabrina Maréchal, Head of Marketing & Communications for PrestaShop.
"PrestaShop have achieved a lot in a short period of time considering that it is a community driven project, with the product maturing steadily and in a way that will stand the test of time." added Paul Anthony, bespoke e-commerce solutions developer and one of the judges for the 2010 Open Source E-Commerce Applications category. "The structure of the product has also given rise to numerous creative implementations, and the community is large enough and responsive enough to cope with these requests for improvement."
«Every day more than 40,000 merchants use PrestaShop to manage their online activity and we want to continually improve our software for them, as well as our future users and developers», concludes Bruno Lévêque.
PrestaShop is the first project awarded in this category. Next step? An exceptional 1.4 final version!
