Looking back and looking ahead 2021

Productflow logo

First of all, best wishes for 2022! How do you look back on 2021? In any case, we hope that despite all the corona vicissitudes you still had a great year and that you will surpass the past year again in 2022. We would like to reflect on the past year with you and look forward to 2022!

We have grown a lot
In 2021, ProductFlow has experienced enormous growth in many areas. The number of customers has tripled. The ProductFlow team has expanded from 2 to 8 people from mid-2020 until now and we have mainly grown in the number of Developers. In addition, we work with a number of external forces. The partner program is also starting to bear fruit.

Bol.com Gold Partner
The collaboration with bol.com has also entered a new phase. In 2021, ProductFlow received the Gold designation. And the cool thing is that of all automation partners, we went from Bronze to Silver to Gold the fastest. We are really proud of that.

Might be fun to listen to: After obtaining Gold status, Frank was invited by bol.com to record a podcast, together with Sophie Nijhout (Head of API Support & Partner Ecosystem Development – ​​bol.com). In the podcast they discuss what third parties can mean for Bol.com's sales partners.

Updates ProductFlow platform
We are continuously working on further improving and expanding the ProductFlow platform. In addition, we have also implemented the necessary solutions and improvements under the hood. But perhaps even more important; our unique way of thinking has been translated into functionalities in the ProductFlow platform. In the past year, we implemented the following points, among others:

● It has been possible for some time to link ProductFlow with web shops. But what makes us so different is that we also apply these links the other way around. So manage the Offers for your webshop from ProductFlow and let the webshop orders enter ProductFlow in addition to the orders from the marketplaces. We have already prepared the "turning around" of this for Lightspeed and Woocommerce and the other webshop software will follow. Your advantage? See the next point:

● ProductFlow is the place to be for creating, managing and distributing products to the various sales channels (web shops and marketplaces) and any linked systems that are used even more.

● The ProductFlow Repricer was added at the beginning of the year. We also work in a unique way in this and we hear that from our customers too! Read more and try free for 2 weeks (click here)

Tip: With the updates in the ProductFlow platform, we will keep you informed of these kinds of updates on a weekly basis.
