CHICAGO, IL  – In the world of eCommerce every hour of every day means the possibility of revenue. So when enterprise-level companies have questions about their online business, they look to the experts. On May 5th, Lyons Consulting Group, the premier eCommerce development and support firm based in downtown Chicago, joined forces with their long-term strategic partner, Magento, to host the first ever eCommerce Forum, an event aimed at educating local business owners on how they can improve their eCommerce website.

The eCommerce Forum was designed to give serious eCommerce businesses and technical decision-makers a general understanding of who Lyons Consulting Group and Magento are, what each does to empower the eCommerce ecosystem and how each can help clients build a profitable online business. The forum began with a presentation by Rich Lyons, CEO and Founder of Lyons Consulting Group, who provided insight into his company. Later, attendees were educated on Magento features and functionalities and then given a full, in-depth demonstration of the Magento Enterprise eCommerce solution. Afterwards, attendees were able to network with Lyons Consulting Group and Magento personnel, and other companies with the same questions and ambitions.

Magento has embarked on a multi-city seminar tour across the U.S. with key Solution Partners to educate merchants on the advantages of Magento Enterprise and the Magento ecosystem. When a business chooses Magento they not only get the best eCommerce platform in the world, but they have a vast network of Magento partners and experts that can help them be successful. Having this seminar in Chicago with Lyons is a true testament to the high-quality of partners we have,” said Scott Dahlgren, Sr. Director, Worldwide Channels.

Lyons Consulting Group has an extensive history with eCommerce design and development, Lyons understands what it takes to develop quality sites that not only look good, but perform well, and get the desired results. Over the years, Lyons Consulting Group has launched over 100 eCommerce sites, with dozens being on a Magento platform. Most recently, Lyons Consulting Group was presented with the Innovator of the Year Award from Magento, which was given to the partner who has provided the greatest amount of innovation in 2010 around Magento Enterprise to achieve mutual success.

“We have a lot to offer enterprise businesses and education is always the first step,” said Rich Lyons, CEO and Founder of Lyons Consulting Group. “Our company has been very involved with eCommerce, specifically Magento, for many years and this was a great opportunity to reach out to the eCommerce community and show them how we can provide the best online solution for their business.”

The three-hour event was hosted at the Metropolitan Club in downtown Chicago. Over two dozen interested companies from the Chicagoland area attended.
