Portland, OR, May 3, 2010 – JanRain, Inc., (www.janrain.com) provider of the leading user management platform for the social Web, today announced four major e-commerce related sites representing a spectrum of online retailers have selected the company’s RPX solution to enable third-party authentication for consumers visiting their Websites. Sears, Diesel, RedPlum, and Savings.com have all implemented JanRain’s SaaS offering to enable customers to easily login through a third-party identity provider including Google, Yahoo, Facebook ,Twitter, AOL and many others. JanRain’s retail client adoptions are indicative of a trend the company is seeing in the market as login, registration and publishing to the social networks become increasingly important to the growing online retail channel.
“Major retailers are really beginning to see the benefits of user-managed identity and are turning to JanRain to provide an innovative and robust solution that allows them to learn more about their customers to better engage with them,” said Brian Kissel, CEO, JanRain. “The diversity of clients within this industry shows the relevance of a third party login solution across the retail sector. Each of the customers we are highlighting today is leader within a specific part of the retail market.
Sears works with JanRain’s RPX to provide better convenience and choice to their customers. Diesel, and internet retailers specializing in coupons, Savings.com and RedPlum, now enable third party authentication via RPX to streamline the user experience.
We selected JanRain to bolster user engagement on the Savings.com site and saw our sign-up rate double within days of installation,” said Pete Mauro, Head of Product Management at Savings.com. “Working with JanRain allows us to provide our users with a full range of options. If we had chosen to support only one or two providers, we would have missed some great opportunities to serve our community.”
