Venzee is a SaaS company that launched in 2014 to help e-commerce vendors and retailers easily share product information in a US$23 trillion retail industry (source: Statista). Traditionally, this was done using spreadsheets which created a labor-intensive process that delayed products from reaching the marketplace. Venzee’s technology, leveraging artificial intelligence to streamline product information management, allows vendors and retailers to seamlessly share information, avoiding delays and getting products to market faster than ever.
The Company graduated from notable startup accelerator program 500 Startups and is already powering some of the biggest brands in the world.
