BrandStak will make your existing platform MACH-ready at a cost you can afford, saving you many times its cost as you adopt future technologies and driving significant value add along the way.

Solving key business issues - catalog management, real-time pricing, inventory utilization – alongside the ability to track and react to market signals.
A new, easy-to-implement and cost-effective AI / ML -based data unification, analytics and tech integration platform, designed for augmented decisioning in the consumer and retail sector – is pleased to announce two new strategic partnerships. BrandStak has been incubated by the Emerisque Group, a specialist global investor in mid-cap consumer and retail brands.
