Markant brings suppliers and retailers together

Markant offers suppliers and retailers in the food retail, wholesale, drugstore and speciality retail sectors numerous services along the entire value chain. We optimise cross-company processes and create efficient solutions in the areas of payment services, finance and security, article master data and market analyses. Markant's business model is based on the goal of assisting suppliers and retailers by providing services and solutions in the back-up process area so that they can concentrate on their core business.

The Markant model utilises synergies and reduces interfaces between suppliers and retailers. One example of this is the centralised processing of payment transactions: All invoices and receipts are processed automatically via Markant, eliminating countless bilateral contact points.

The efficiency gains on the part of both suppliers and retailers can be passed on to end consumers through lower prices, innovations, a wider and more attractive product range or more locations.

Our services

Markant optimises and automates processes and payment systems, provides suppliers and retailers with up-to-date data and increases planning reliability on both sides. With our services, we simplify and accelerate the administrative processing of supply relationships without being part of the supply chain ourselves. The Markant model is based on the values of trust, co-operation and progress. Over 15,000 suppliers and 200 retailers across Europe benefit from Markant's services.

    We decided a few years ago to pool the process of licensing packaging with Markant. The reasons for this remain that we will minimise the amount of time and effort we invest and have a cost advantage with the pooling effect compared to our own call for tender. We also value the legally compliant drafting of contracts and Markant's professional implementation. The quick processing of our queries ensures a smooth workflow. We will continue to use Markant's packaging licensing services in future.  [less]
