G.O.A.T Brand Labs and THG Ingenuity, the Technology Services division of THG Holdings plc, the proprietary unified commerce platform specialising in taking brands direct to consumers globally and scale, have announced a strategic partnership to build and execute localised digital capabilities together in India.
THG Ingenuity is a unified commerce platform with a full stack technology, digital and operations omnichannel capabilities, and is preferred by several leading direct-to-consumer (“DTC”) and consumer brand giants across the world and in India.
The alliance between G.O.A.T Brand labs and THG Ingenuity will see the companies work together to develop localised digital capabilities to help India’s leading consumer brands scale up their e-commerce businesses, representing a significant step towards future-proofing the robust growth of the Indian DTC ecosystem.
