For over 15 years we’ve been active in e-commerce. In those years we’ve worked with a broad group of clients in all kinds of businesses: wholesalers, advertising agencies, brands, SMBs and multinationals. We’ve thought up and developed many beautiful (and different) solutions. And we used all that experience to create our e-commerce platform Katana. We’ve been developing and improving our platform for years and by now it’s solid as a rock. We’re very proud of our long history and would love to take you on a short trip through some of the highlights.
In 2018 we welcomed the first professional soccer club to our portfolio: KAA Gent from the first division in Belgium.
Capayable is rebranding their business to In3. A simple and attractive concept which lets you pay later in three instalments.
One of the fastest growing online stores in water sports is Boottotaal. With Katana Commerce’s help they can continue their growth.
When we accept a project, we see it as a marriage: it’s for life. But sometimes factors we can’t control throw a spanner in the works. Last year the orchid market crashed and this ambitious project was stopped and slimmed. But how good it was! We did a lot of work for them: a corporate branding, website & online store, integrated their systems, designed their packaging and much, much more.
We’re still broken-hearted.
We're always busy developing new ideas to improve our service and quality. The entire team is involved in this process during our different brainstorm sessions. In 2017, this resulted in a custom made werk method based on Scrum.
For more than 140 years Eijffinger has been decorating houses with their own designs of wallpaper and curtain fabrics. Katana Commerce is now the foundation of their online success. Next to finding inspiration and news about wallpaper and fabrics market, visitors can check out the entire Eijffinger collection.
Katana Commerce can be used to set up a professional online store very quickly. Hekwerk theathre products cleverly used this to quickly create an online store for Jochem Myjer and his children's book De Gorgels.
For Pipstudio we developed an e-commerce platform that isn't just a place to sell the unique products of their own design. It also had to give an identity to their brand. The target audience had to be completely submerged into the world of Pipstudio when they visit pipstudio.com
ZTRDG was an inspiration website filled with exciting recipes and fun information about food & cooking. We built a new platform where you can have a recipe's ingredients delivered to your house, fresh from the land. A cool idea and a fun concept, but places like Hello Fresh and Marley Spoon (selling simple menu boxes) were able to market themselves as cheaper and more user-friendly alternatives.
We helped Sanoma launch many fun online stores for some of their most famous brands. Next to the online stores for brands like Flair, Margriet, Ariadne at Home and Libelle, we also built the Dutch Donald Duck store: the Duckstadshop.
Sometimes we're approached not to build an e-commerce platform, but to take care of everything before it. For Piet Klerkx, we developed the customer journey, interaction design, and a graphic design.
We always try to get in on new developments in e-commerce early. An important development that we saw happening was the emergence of marketplaces. That's when we started the first stages of building software that helps you upload your products, enrich & filter the product data, and then sell them on different marketplaces like Amazon and Bol.com. ChannelEngine took off like a rocket and has received a cash injection from investors.
In 2014 we entered into a partnership with one of the largest wine importers in the Benelux: Delta Wines. This ambitious project included connection four different wine importers that belong to the Delta Wines organization: DGS Wijn, Pallas Wines, Coenecoop and Global Wine Operations. In a single B2B environment professional wine sellers like liquor stores had to be able to order wines from all four entities.
Capayable, een nieuwe online betaaloplossing, hebben we ondersteund bij het opstarten van hun nieuwe bedrijf. Naast een informatieve website hebben we kredietrapportages en een API voor ze gemaakt.
We supported Capayable, a new online payment solution, when they started up their new business. Next to an informative website we developed their credit reporting and API.
Run2day is the authority on running and jogging. A fun customer that we didn't let run us by.
We're very selective about which parties we'd like to work with. With Kieskeurig, we were quickly convinced. We set up the order management for their cool platform. That made it possible for consumers to place their orders directly on kieskeurig.nl. We made sure the order was sent to the right party and the administration was handled neatly.
Prins Petfoods knew we love animals and trusted us with several projects. Among others edupet.nl where animal lovers sign up to become the new Cesar Millan. And apart from the websites for Prins Petfoods we also developed an online store to bring Prins Petfoods into the French market: Kanizoo.com
For several years we developed online stores for wholesaler Ridam. The stores sold things like travel goods and winter sporting goods. A fun branch that everybody can enjoy.
For IHC Merwede we developed an online store specifically for their own personnel. IHC employees could order IHC merchandise, like sweaters and keychains, using a credit system. Who wouldn't want a sweater from their employer?
The concept of voor-thuis.nl, a large and broad selection of living accessories from the best brands, was so successful that Sanoma Media became interested. What followed was the acquisition (of SB Commerce) and the transformation of voor-thuis to vtwonen.nl.
With A House of Happiness we gained a happy customer. These creative Frisians had us develop a website and online store with a user-friendly curtain configurator.
In between we actually managed to create a platform where small independent (indie) PC games could be downloaded. Sadly, it didn't last long because platforms like Steam were gaining popularity.
We met Astrid Joosten & Therese Boer through connections. These two famous Dutchwomen are huge wine lovers and connoisseurs. With a personal online store they wanted to share their taste and knowledge of wine with everyone.
Sanoma Media wanted to strengthen her position in the online sales of home decorations. To achieve this they were looking for an experienced e-commerce partner. They found that in SB Commerce. Tritac developed both the online store and the managing environment, including all connections.
Go Connect, by now acquired by Exertis, is the largest supplier of business communication tools. We built their website and the B2B online store.
When we received a phone call asking us if we wanted to do something for women we momentarily furrowed our brows. But it turned out to be a very cool project to develop an online store for the women-pages of Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf. It was an experience to visit their newsroom.
It's a fantasy that IT people only sit indoors. Plenty of our developers love being outdoors or grew up in the countryside. That means that Kvernelandgroup was an ideal new customer for us. We developed an online store that sells and manages licenses for agricultural software.
Everybody has visited the KPN website, but did you know there's a KPN International? This section of KPN is aimed at the international business market of networks. Next to the development of their website, we also rolled out a related themed website.
This year we completely focused on Fauna. We built websites and online stores for Dobey, Faunaland, Van Ree and Dierspecialist. Good projects with good people.
Next to Jamin, House of Shoes also used the fulfilment services of SB Commerce. We developed the e-commerce platform. And we also had a shoo in with The Sensible Shoe Company. We rolled out several themed shops for this brand.
After earlier experience building online clothing stores for mcjones.nl and lovables.nl, we started a fine partnership with fashion chain La Ligna. For eight years we took care of their website and online store. A beautiful reference in the area of fashion.
Voor-thuis.nl is going live. The original name was leuk-voor-thuis.nl but that was in use by a different home decoration store. Eventually, this online store would grow into a large multi-shop with product and brand stores like bbq-voor-thuis.nl, brabantia-voor-thuis and kapstop-voor-thuis.nl. This formula was a completely hit and the platform was the foundation for vtwonen.nl after Sanoma acquired SB Commerce.
A nice inbetweener for a beautiful brand was cookingwithaeg.nl. A website with promoted the brand AEG and aimed to get a larger share in the professional kitchen.
If there was one project that put a smile on our face, it was the Unicef store. Beautiful and honest products that serve a greater good, who doesn't get happy from that. On this project we worked with Dept (previously TamTam), the creative agency responsible for the website.
For Liptop, part of Unilever, we did a fun project to promote the Lipton tea. The goal was to increase Lipton tea's share in the catering sector. With a handy editor, restaurants and cafes could see which tea display was the best for their business.
With the founder of weekendjeweg.nl we set up some fun projects. Next to the illustrious websites fuckthecrisis.nu and mijntheeistop we especially had a lot of fun developing the online stores for the 'Seenonscreen' label. This store sold merchandise for famous TV formats and TV shows like Popstars, Ik hou van Holland, Sex & the City, RTL GP and New Kids.
One of the most diverse and fun collaborations we did was with Jamin. They were the first customer of Tritac and SB commerce who outsourced their fulfilment to SB Commerce. We saw Jamin slowly, and in close discussion with their franchisers, transformed their website and online store. We developed cool themed actions like the Choco Tweet Machine, Jamin Twizzl Maker and the Create-your-own-easter-egg studio.
Sometimes customers called us if we could set up a landing page with an order process behind it. For LG we set up several of these landing pages (which were more like temporary promotional online stores) within a very short timespan.
For more than 10 years FashionCheque has been one of our most loyal customers. We've supported them with their digital expressions since their founding. From (themed) website and online stores to the technology behind activating and managing the actual FashionCheques.
For Poppeliers we developed an online store for muziekmetropool, which would later become pianometropool.
SB Commerce is moving into a new warehouse in Amersfoort. The orders were coming so quickly that the old warehouse quickly became too small.
The Drie Dwaze Dagen was a sensational phenomenon unique in the Netherlands. It was started in 1984 and in 2007 we helped set up the first digital Dwaze Dagen. Quite a challenge because of the numbers of simultaneous visitors. It was a huge success.
For some years we facilitated a successful online store for TNT Post (now PostNL). The design and the online store were developed by us and our sister company SB Commerce did the fulfilment and handled the product assortment.
For dredging king Boskalis we handled a bunch of different projects for a long time. From a generator for business cards, a clothing store with a clothing line called RBW1910 to an online store with merchandise.
For insurer CZ we developed an e-commerce platform where care related products were sold.
Every giant was small at some point. It was like that for Fonq. We developed the first very first Fonq website. And the rest is history.
We did several different kinds of projects for Bam. We started with small project websites for the sale of houses and apartments. And since 2018 we're working with them on the project ditismijnthuis.nl.
Websites and online stores can be designed to be almost art. But in 2005, looking back, it was mostly the art itself that was flying high... A fun customer that we've had under our creative wings for years.
The very first online store from SB Commerce and Tritac.
SB Commerce is born. Together with Tritac's first customer, Edwin van Bremen, Tritac's founder, Jorrit Steinz, founded the e-commerce organization SB Commerce. The letters SB not only stand for Steinz and Breemen, but also for Service & Bereikbaarheid (Service & accessibility). SB Commerce manages and exploits the online stores developed by Tritac and handles the fulfilment from their own warehouse. A success formula of many years is born.
The festive start of Tritac was celebrated with the launch of partyflash.nl. Pub owners and discotheque bosses bought the then very fashionable partyflash here and then sold them in their own toko. It actually was our very first B2B online store.
