  • The MWV Technology

    MWV relies on state of the art services and established open source technologies improved and connected via the MWV backbone. The combination of external resources and MWV technology allows the ventures to focus on improving efficiency without sacrificing quality on a streamlined technology.

    The MWV Front-End stack uses HTML 5 and CSS 3 compliant interfaces for web applications on desktops and ready to use building blocks for smartphone applications running natively on the devices.

    The MWV Cloud Platform connects the external services and the Front-End into a holistic but easy to maintain technical solution providing interoperability between the services. Functioning as a backbone, it reduces in house development significantly while sourcing modern technologies out of the external services. The slipstreamed architecture of the MWV Cloud Platform allows a shared management of data making core information like customer information or merchant revenues accessible across all tools providing our ventures with the information they need inside the right tools.

    New features like marketplace support inside shopify can be easily added through versatile building blocks allowing a future proof and easy update service platform. All ventures profit from the shared codebase and future releases can easily be rolled out group wise.
