Finish Line Goes the Distance with Demandware Commerce

The Finish Line, a retailer of athletic shoes, apparel and accessories, has launched e-commerce and mobile sites on the Demandware Commerce platform. The initiative is part of the retailer's strategic move to a cloud-based digital commerce solution to power its omni-channel strategy, it will also use Demandware to power, a brand that focuses on running.
"Our goal is to transform our business, not just maintain it. We want to drive innovation and propel the business. Demandware reduces operational complexity and puts the power in the hands of our users to create world-class brand experiences. It provides customers a better and faster online experience, rather than having technology get in the way," said Chris Ladd, chief digital officer for Finish Line. "With Demandware's business model, we're mutually incentivized by success."
