Crowdfox is one of the drivers of digital transformation in Germany

B2C platforms such as Amazon, Alibaba and others are a global success model and we can no longer imagine life without them. For some years now, a broad landscape of ambitious B2B platforms has been developing parallel to this dynamic happening in the B2C segment – especially in Germany. Initially, American and Chinese companies shaped the platform economy in the B2C segment, but what many do not know: German companies, with their industry know-how, are now leading the way in the development of digital B2B platforms. 

German industry has long since discovered digital platforms as an innovative business model. Thanks to their great diversity, B2B platforms can reduce efficiency problems and generate added value in areas such as purchasing, production and logistics. In addition, they strengthen ecological, social and economic sustainability in industrial value creation processes. Digital platforms thus offer considerable potential for our economy and are driving the digital transformation in Germany and worldwide enormously.  

The BDI – Bundesverband der Deutschen Industrie e.V. (Federation of German Industries) published the 4th edition of the BDI publication of German digital B2B platforms on November 3. The handbook presents 110 innovative business-to-business platforms whose applications are making the German economy more digital and sustainable – including Crowdfox!
