Better together – Anatwine and Tradebyte officially join forces

Leading marketplace integrators, enabling seamless connections between brands and retailers, and e-commerce experts: Anatwine and Tradebyte have a lot in common. Now it's official: the two companies are joining forces to become the leading platform enabler for the European fashion and lifestyle market. Under the name Tradebyte, we will pursue a common goal in the future: making platform players successful. 

 

Dewi Thomas_klein»When Matthias and I first discussed the idea of Anatwine & Tradebyte joining forces, it didn’t take very long for us to conclude that the two businesses were very complementary and the combination made perfect sense. Tradebyte brings established, feature-rich SaaS solutions, and Anatwine brings a customer-centric approach to services and technological know-how, and the combination of both leads to an industry-leading, broad value proposition that caters to all brands and retailers that operate a DTC or Platform business. The final consideration was one of culture, and we were delighted to discover that both organisations were almost identical in their core ethos, highly engaged and collaborative, and focused on making things work for our customers.«

Dewi Thomas, Managing Director at Tradebyte UK (former Anatwine).

 

Matthias Schulte_klein»The beauty of our combination is that both companies used to be highly demand-driven in the past and that today we have the joint power to enter the driver seat for our business. On top of the relevant connections we provide between brands and retailers across the platform industry, we want to do everything to empower our partners to be successful. Therefore, we will evolve our business model in regards to BI possibilities, performance, and marketing tools. We will be the key enabler across European fashion and lifestyle retail to make platform players successful!«
