A Team and a Vision
Kalio was born in early 2011 from the merger of two sister companies with complementary offerings – An eCommerce platform business based in Cincinnati, Ohio, and the other, a Silicon Valley managed service provider.
Both companies were led by Chairman Jonathan Lee, who brought them together with a vision: to bring the utility computing model to a custom development-centric eCommerce industry. The merge resulted in Kalio, a company delivering eCommerce that allows you to Do What You Want, When You Want for business users of mid-market merchants, retailers, and manufacturers. Kalio is committed to helping them grow their online business by reducing reliance on IT resources to support their initiatives.
The Kalio Executive team brings significant eCommerce and multi-channel retail experience, combined with Silicon Valley cloud-based infrastructure, deep enterprise application development and integration know how.
Many of the team members have worked together for decades and through numerous successes including Corio, an ASP business model pioneer (and now IBM entity) which Jonathan founded in 1998.
The team shares a vision similar to that which drove Corio’s success: the fundamental belief in utility computing (now called true Software-as-a-Service), and that success for mid-sized retailers in eCommerce is determined by their ability to be nimble, adaptable, and to make changes fast.
Today KalioCommerce drives approximately half a billion dollars of online sales across the nearly 100 sites we power. We are proud to be a Partner of each and every one of our customers, focused on helping grow their online revenues with an innovative SaaS (on-demand) platform and associated services.
