UK marketplace management outsourcing company Pentagon has acquired the managed services division of French provider Sonuts.
The deal will see Pentagon extend its offering to 16 additional European marketplaces including Priceminister, Cdiscount, FNAC, La Redoute, Rue du Commerce and Galleries Lafayette.
Pentagon CEO Laurence Guy, said, "We have been looking to properly enter the French market for a few years, but the landscape is very different from the UK due to the volume of specialist marketplaces and the challenge of finding the right integration software. There is massive revenue potential in France but it can only be unlocked with skill and local knowledge. Not only do Sonuts offer that knowledge, but they have a very credible track record managing stores for French brands and retailers, they have integrated to all the marketplaces and most importantly, they share our passion for service."
Sonuts has operated marketplace stores for over fifty leading French brands and retailers, including Groupe SEB and Accor Hotels. The company will retain the Sonuts brand and operate as a design agency.
Francois-Xavier Morre, Sonuts' co-founder, said, "Pentagon has a very strong service proposition supported by over 100 marketplace experts at their Centre of Excellence in Bulgaria. French Marketplaces offer an incredible opportunity for brands and retailers but the work that underpins their successful exploitation requires skilled manpower. We have the local knowledge but Pentagon has the scalability in this space to provide the solution that the market demands."

Multichannel ecommerce management tool Linnworks has updated the way they handle variation items.
Variation items are products which are sold under one listing but vary based on size, colour, pack size or other properties. Linnworks has introduced the concept of a "Variation Parent", which allows sellers to:
- Have a Variation Item SKU that is a child of multiple Variation Parents, so they can create listings with different combinations of variation items.
- Define shared properties at the Variation Parent level for listing purposes.
- Only need to define variation-specific properties at the The Variation Item SKU level.
Multichannel management software Linnworks has updated its extension for the Magento ecommerce platform.
The updated extension offers improved performance and speed when bulk listing using LinnLive, and is required for a forthcoming update of LinnLive.
