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.
