Venda is an on-demand, software-as-a-service (SaaS or cloud) platform delivering eCommerce and multi-channel retail solutions to customers worldwide. Dan Wagner devised the concept for Venda in 1998 as a subsidiary of MAID and funded the research into creating the world’s first shared platform for eCommerce.
As a pioneer of cloud based (Software as a Service) eCommerce, Venda has been supporting retailers in delivering a consistent brand image across online, mobile and in-store channels since 2001. The scalability and reliability of the Venda platform allows retailers to easily expand their business, whilst navigating the ever-evolving retail market with next-generation technology such as Responsive Web Design as standard on the platform. With Venda’s expertise, global partner network,
international payments solution and multi-currency, multi-language capabilities, Venda enables retailers to easily expand into new territories. Venda’s comprehensive design, build and support services have assisted the likes of boohoo.com, Tesco, TJX Companies (TK Maxx), Laura Ashley, Royal Mail Group and Fat Face in developing and growing their business.
Venda grew to become the European market leader before being sold to US behemoth NetSuite Inc in 2014. As of July 2016, NetSuite was acquired by Oracle for $9.3 billion.
