Our 5 Core Values

What does Sana Commerce do?

Sana Commerce is an e-commerce platform that enables businesses to set up and manage their online sales activities. It allows businesses to create a professional-looking online store and list their products, manage inventory, process orders, and handle customer data and transactions securely. It also provides businesses with various features and tools to optimize their online sales and marketing efforts, such as search engine optimization, customer relationship management, and analytics. Additionally, it can integrate with other software systems such as accounting, warehouse management, and shipping, to streamline their back-end operations. It's a comprehensive e-commerce solution that helps businesses to sell their products online efficiently and effectively.

What is the history of Sana Commerce?

It all started in 2007, with a pizza and a plan. One evening in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, five people came together over a pizza and set out to create a B2B e-commerce platform unlike any other. And Sana Commerce was born.   

Sana Commerce is an e-commerce platform designed to help distributors, manufacturers and wholesalers succeed in an economy built on lasting customer relationships. How? By turning our customers’ SAP or Microsoft Dynamics ERP into the engine that powers their web store, unlocking total customer convenience, reliability without compromise, and effortless scalability. 

Sana Commerce is currently powered by more than 500 employees. We all have our own expertise and specialties, from sales and marketing to project management and more. But we’re all driven by the same goal: to make our customers’ e-commerce projects a success.

No door policy 🚪

Overall, a flat hierarchy and leaders who listen to opinions create a more inclusive and open culture where everyone's voice is heard and ideas are valued. But why do we adopt this mentality? With fewer layers of management, it can be easier for employees to communicate and collaborate with one another, leading to better teamwork and more innovative solutions.

Let's Get Social 🍟

Being social is good for your mental health. If you have concerns, stresses or worries, sharing these with someone who cares is one of the most effective ways to calm your nervous system and relieve stress. Whether it's at weekly in-office lunch, monthly drinks or in an online meeting, we encourage our colleagues to connect and support each other.

Let's Get Physical 🏋️‍♂️

Staying active is as good for the brain as it is for the body. Regular exercise or activity can have a major impact on your mental and emotional health. Our locations differ in benefits but our heart for our people remains the same, we want you to be your best self!

Be in CTRL of Your Energy 🍎

The Be in CTRL of your Energy is a special internal initiative for our Sana Commerce people.
