Retailys.com is a fast-growing Czech e-commerce engineer company, the first in the Czech Republic to develop a so-called “multi-channel e-commerce platform”, a platform that allows retailers to sell their products through many different online sales channels simultaneously in Europe. Thus, companies can easily create their own foreign European e-commerce, meeting local requirements, manage their accounts in global markets such as Amazon, eBay and other markets and price comparison websites. The system includes advanced product inventory management and warehouse management. Orders from all sales channels are displayed on one dashboard. Thanks to retail, companies can expand across Europe with just one dashboard. More information at https://www.retailys.com/our-story/.
