IQmetrix, Vancouver company that specializes in developing in-store interactive displays for retailers, has acquired Web Werkz, a Vancouver company that develops websites for wireless retailers.
IQmetrix specializes in developing interactive experiences for retailers, allowing customers to both browse products in-store while also browsing online or finding out more information about products through in-store touchscreens.
Web Werkz develops sites principally for independent wireless retailers and includes e-commerce.
“We are extremely excited about this acquisition, which will leverage Web Werkz’s demonstrated expertise in e-commerce,” saids iQmetrix CEO Christopher Krywulak.
“IQmetrix solutions focus on creating great in-store experiences for the retailer, retail staff and the end consumer, and now with Web Werkz, we can extend those experiences to the online channel.”
“We are excited at the possibilities iQmetrix has opened up for our company,” said Web Werkz president Al Kilburn. “By joining iQmetrix, we are not only able to expand our market reach beyond Canada and into the U.S., we also become a part of an exciting company that shares our values and priorities.”
