e-Commerce agency Touchtribe and cloud native agency Techtribe will continue under the name Touchtribe. Both agencies have been part of the Amsterdam MakerStreet network since the beginning and have been working closely together for years. Due to the great need for cloud native technology and far-reaching integrations with back-office systems, this is a logical step', says Gert van Vliet Managing Director of Touchtribe who is in charge of day-to-day operations.
Daan van Polanen, Operations Lead: "Traditionally, Techtribe has built back office systems for e-commerce parties. Think for example of business portals such as supplier portals or mine environments where customers can view and process invoices and orders. We also have a lot of experience with links and integrations within e-commerce. This merge has given us even more technological expertise.
The demand for scalable cloud native technology continues to grow, driven by the tremendous growth of eCommerce across the board. Consumer brands are increasingly delivering directly to end users through a Direct-to-Consumer strategy, but the traditional B2B market is also changing at a rapid pace.
According to Van Polanen, organizations increasingly need a total solution to take their digital operations to the next level. Successful brands are using less and less heavy and feature-rich systems in their digital and online operations, but more often opting for best of breed SaaS solutions. The focus is on agility and delivering the best service to end users.

Bringing together the expertise of the two companies creates a one-stop shop for modern e-commerce solutions. Van Vliet: "For our target group, the profit lies in designing your digital platform as smartly and cost-effectively as possible. This goes beyond the customer facing application at the front-end. By also taking ownership of the backend we add even more value as Touchtribe. The pooling of activities brings the number of employees at Touchtribe to 30.
Gert continues: "By choosing cloud native, best of breed and serverless technology we expect to make a difference for our customers in the coming years. That's why we enjoy working with renowned partners, such as Amazon Web Services, as the foundation of business portals, SaaS provider BigCommerce for innovative e-commerce platforms and Contentful and Storyblok for the implementation of Headless CMS solutions."
