Welcome to EUStartup.news, where innovation takes center stage. In this edition of our Startup Showcase, we shine a spotlight on BIZAY, the tech-based B2B marketplace that’s transforming the way businesses access custom-made products.
BIZAY: Redefining the B2B Marketplace
Nestled in the vibrant tech scene of Torres Vedras, Portugal, BIZAY is on a mission to create the world’s leading B2B marketplace using cutting-edge supply chain technology. Over the past five years, they’ve empowered more than 1 million small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) to scale their operations and grow exponentially. With €30 million in revenue in 2019, BIZAY is taking the B2B world by storm.
A Fabless Model That Drives Efficiency
At its core, BIZAY operates on a fabless business model. This means they don’t invest heavily in manufacturing infrastructure; instead, they harness the unused production capacity of their partners to fulfill the needs of SMBs. It’s a win-win approach that increases efficiency while reducing costs.
Expanding the Horizons of Customization
BIZAY’s journey began with printing, packaging, textiles, and professional products, but they didn’t stop there. They’ve expanded their model to include furniture, food, and even 3D printing, among others. This diversification is a testament to their commitment to offer an extensive range of made-to-order products, adapting to the evolving needs of their customers.
From 360imprimir to Bizay: A Brand Evolution
360imprimir, previously known as 360onlineprint, has now rebranded to Bizay. This transformation reflects their commitment to providing unlimited product categories, allowing businesses to truly define their unique identity through customization.
The Tech Platform That Drives Efficiency
BIZAY’s tech platform is the backbone of their operation. It orchestrates production seamlessly by employing data and algorithms to aggregate orders and determine the most efficient production partners. This results in significant efficiency and speed gains. The platform also ensures full order tracking across different production partners while automating pre-production processes.
Setting Themselves Apart
What sets BIZAY apart from the competition? Several factors:
- Online Product Configuration: BIZAY’s platform enables customers to configure and personalize products to their heart’s content, providing a unique and tailored experience.
- Competitive Pricing: Whether you’re ordering in small or large quantities, BIZAY offers competitive pricing per unit. Say goodbye to lengthy lead times; they promise delivery in just 48 hours, all while maintaining stringent quality standards.
- Integrated Value Chain: BIZAY provides an end-to-end solution, offering on-demand design services through external providers, streamlining the entire production process.
A Global Expansion
While their journey began in Portugal, Spain, Brazil, and Mexico, BIZAY recently secured an impressive €18 million in B-round funding. This strategic move, announced in April, allowed them to launch in 17 new countries in 2019, including Germany, France, the UK, and the USA. Their rapid global expansion speaks volumes about the competitiveness of their offerings.
A Successful Entry Into New Markets
With just eight months of trading in these new markets, BIZAY has demonstrated the strength of their value proposition. They’ve proven their pricing competitiveness across all markets and achieved solid acquisition metrics.
