CEO Sharon Price John says Build-A-Bear’s old e-commerce system is a big reason for disappointing online sales in December.
Traxpay redesigns and redefines B2B payments, and attracts customers, industry talent, and investors along the way.
Mountain View, California / Cologne, Germany – Traxpay, a pioneer in business-to-business (B2B) real-time financial transactions, today completed its first year of operations with significant growth and strong momentum. Over the past twelve months, the company secured capital investment, hired recognized industry experts to lead the company, and filed numerous patents internationally. In additional to launching new product applications, Traxpay has announced multiple customer adoptions and, most recently, the opening of offices in Frankfurt, Germany’s financial hub, to accommodate its growth.
Traxpay offers the world’s first and only cloud-based B2B financial transactions platform that combines real-time, 24/7 transaction execution and settlement, with full data attachment capabilities, and an integrated communication and collaboration channel to enable companies to conduct business directly and achieve fast reconciliation. With all transactions handled across its trusted bank-grade data center and all funds protected by the German Central Bank, Traxpay provides the ultimate in safety and security for B2B commerce. Customers benefit not only through safe and secure real-time, anytime, anywhere transactions, but are also able to generate new revenue streams, accelerate cash flow, and protect against payment fraud and losses.
For B2B digital marketplaces powered by Traxpay this translates to fast and safe online checkouts, trusted trade for online communities, and support for the unique business data requirements and multi-level approval flows typical for B2B transactions.
For traditional B2B networks and supply chains this means better control, predictability, and efficiency of cash flows, liquidity, and working capital, and faster access and better insights into their global cash position.
With a strong vote of confidence from investors, significant new customer adoption, millions of euros of transactions across its platform, multiple international patents pending, new products, the grand opening of its new offices in Frankfurt, Germany, and more, the company has far exceeded goals for growth set just one year ago.
