About Venzee

Venzee is the leading artificial intelligence platform for the transfer of product data between brands and retailers.

E-commerce is constrained by the dependence on manual processes to communicate the endless and variable product information needed to engage a consumer and sell a product. We have taken it upon ourselves to solve this problem with our simple, A.I. based solution for brands and retailers.

Venzee’s core product is a unique, A.I. driven Mesh Connector™ that allows brands to automate and accelerate the delivery of product data to an unlimited number of retail channels. For retailers, eliminate the inefficiencies of collecting product data from suppliers.
