With an architecture backed by microservices, BEX will be able to introduce a wealth of commerce functionalities and unique customer experiences.
Overdose shares the excitement about the new partnership.
“Being entrusted with the future innovation and technology of BEX is the type of project that doesn’t come around often. When we were presented with the BEX team’s vision, it was a project we knew we had to be a part of. We can’t wait to showcase our commercetools and Marketplacer expertise, as we bring cyclists around the world a new standard of customer experience,”
