Market-leading SaaS solutions for online merchants in the DACH region

Backed by Oakley, ECOMMERCE ONE comprises companies that provide market-leading SaaS solutions for online merchants in the DACH region, helping clients manage and automate difficult, manual and time-critical processes that underpin successful ecommerce operations.

ECOMMERCE ONE was formed in June 2021 in order to establish an ecosystem that harnesses synergies between its constituent companies and accelerates joint growth, while also creating added-value and an all-round solution for online merchants.

With the acquisition of Gambio, ECOMMERCE ONE is continuing its growth strategy. The business complements ECOMMERCE ONE’s existing software solutions, most notably multichannel providers Afterbuy and DreamRobot, and allows the group to offer more services to its customers.

Gambio will operate under the ECOMMERCE ONE umbrella but will remain independent, with Dr. Felix Hötzinger remaining as Managing Director.

For our merchants, joining ECOMMERCE ONE gives them the advantage of receiving even more services and benefiting from the holistic value chain solution that the ecosystem offers for online commerce. We also want to be able to offer our solution to even more clients and joining forces with ECOMMERCE ONE enables us to do so.

We’re pleased to see ECOMMERCE ONE deliver on its buy-and-build strategy as we complement the software solution portfolio and grow the group to become the leading eCommerce software provider for online merchants in the DACH region. A high-performing shop system is a key component of successful eCommerce strategy, so adding Gambio is a logical and exciting extension to ECOMMERCE ONE’s existing offering.
