The authorized.by® platform

Trust and turnover are closely linked in digital commerce.

authorized.by is a B2B authorization platform enabling manufacturers and brands to indicate reliable brand ambassadors by way of an across-the-board realtime quality seal at shop or product level.

Brands and manufacturers use the platform to organize product content for their online partners by granting them licenses and rights of access and use. This way, they can proactively control how their brand is perceived in digital commerce, at the same time optimizing processes with their sales partners. What’s more, insights on the performance of their products in digital commerce create a sound basis for planning.

Online shops benefit from authorization of their partner brands by a realtime “Authorized Partner” seal with ‘ShopIdent’ verification from TÜV, the German certification body — visible confirmation that vetted digital retailers are authorized brand partners. This seal clearly distinguishes them from other vendors, enhancing customer loyalty, readiness to purchase products, and ultimately retailers’ turnover.

Brand manufacturers and online retailers can use the authorized.by® platform to build up their business contacts, create new links, and centrally manage the partnerships they already have with reliable sellers.

The result of this is central management, optimized business processes, verified partnerships, and higher turnover.
