The group also includes Tomasz Nowak and Sebastian Pietrowski (former Allegro employees), Piotr Nowjalis (former CFO of CCC), Vaclav Liska (CEO of the Czech Aukro) and Toomas R. Raist (former CEO of Estonian Osta).

The merXu platform has many applications. One of them is the ability to upload the entire structure of a given organization. Thanks to it, companies with a wide range of products can present their products online, and potential customers can search for products not only by name, but also by identification number (EAN) and according to their needs. MerXu is not limited to wholesale trade only. Goods can also be purchased in single copies. There is also a possibility to request specific goods, and sellers can respond to them themselves.

The platform is already operating in Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Lithuania and Estonia and is available in local languages. In the coming months merXu plans to expand its operations to other markets in the CEE region.
