Venzee is a SaaS (software as a service) 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 achieved by using spreadsheets, which created a labor-intensive, error inducing process that delayed products from reaching the marketplace. Venzee’s technology streamlines product information management, allowing thousands of vendors and retailers to seamlessly share information, avoiding delays and getting products to market faster than ever.
