Unifai elected e-commerce Start-up 2021!


Unifai elected 2021’s e-commerce Startup at the Start-Me Up challenge organised by the FEVAD and KPMG

The FEVAD, the French Federation of E-Commerce and Distance Selling, and KPMG, the world's leading audit and consulting firm, have just announced the winner of the "E-Commerce and Distance Selling" award. This competition highlights, for the 5th consecutive year, the most innovative start-ups driving the e-commerce sector forward.

This year, Unifai caught the attention of the jury and the public with its Artificial Intelligence platform designed for marketplaces, online merchants and distributors that automatically standardises, enriches and categorises their product catalogues to reduce their time-to-market and free up business teams overloaded by the multiplication of product data sources.

"We have entered a new era where product data sources are growing exponentially for retail players. Whether they are distributors, e-tailers or marketplace owners, the challenge is the same: make a large volume of data reliable as quickly as possible to maintain a competitive time-to-marketArtificial Intelligence automation is a real opportunity for retailers to accelerate the integration of their suppliers' catalogs into their internal systems: PIM, PLM, ERP..."

"It is estimated that on average, business teams still spend 50% of their time making data reliable by hand . Our goal is to improve their performance by automating the process of making product data reliable: normalizing, enriching or categorizing product catalogs."
Jesse Créange, CEO and co-founder of Unifai
