MIDDLETOWN, CT--(Marketwired - Jun 1, 2015) - Clarus Marketing Group announces that it will now do business as Clarus Commerce, effective immediately. The Clarus Commerce name represents the company's increasingly diverse range of services, skills, and expertise in the rapidly expanding e-commerce space.
