Children’s apparel chain OshKosh B'Gosh Inc has agreed a deal with Pacific Magtron International Corp’s LiveMarket division for web development, hosting, maintenance and support of its retail e-commerce site.

The three-year contract will see California-based LiveMarket’s software and framework utilise Microsoft's NET platform, including Visual Studio and BizTalk, for the Wisconsin-based retailer’s Internet strategy.

Jon Dell'Antonia, vice president of management information systems for OshKosh B'Gosh, said: "LiveMarket has proven to us they have the technology, team and customer focus to move our Internet retail strategy forward. After experimenting with competing technology, it became apparent LiveMarket was the right solution for OshKosh B'Gosh.

"We are committed to the LiveMarket platform and anxious to assist them with their growth strategy."
