About CommerceBoard GmbH
CommerceBoard GmbH (limited liablity company) was started in 2013 and is based in the heart of Berlin, Germany. The company was founded by a team of seasoned entrepreneurs and developers who set out on a mission to distrupt the young, but already stalling market for enterprise commerce and product data management software. The founders of CommerceBoard possess extensive experience with existing systems from entry level software such as Magento to complex and expensive software targeting the enterprise segment such as Hybris. In building CommerceBoard.com and CommerceBoard eShop, they dwell on this experience to create a product and service proposition that aims to be far superior to the offers of the existing players.
