Moontoast describes itself as a creator of social commerce software that make it easier for entertainment and media companies to find fans of their properties online; deliver content; and, ideally, entice them to buy merchandise.

“We believe there is a fundamental shift occurring in digital commerce,” Les Wilkinson, managing director of the Martin Cos. and a member of Moontoast’s board of directors, said in a statement. “Consumers expect opportunities for engagement and commerce to be delivered to them, and brands are struggling to determine how best to respond.”

Moontoast’s distributed commerce, social analytics and game-commerce products help brands cope with this shift, Wilkinson suggested.

According to Moontoast’s website, clients include Universal Music Group, Simon & Schuster, and IdeaPaint.
