HONG KONG--()--IMS Digital Ventures, the venture building arm of Integrated Management Systems, one of the leading digital transformation agencies in Asia, launches Acuity: an end-to-end e-commerce platform that delivers game-changing growth for Direct-to-Consumer (DTC) brands. An all-in-one solution, Acuity is the partner of choice for ambitious brands that recognise world-class technology, data intelligence, and impactful digital marketing as defining pillars to achieve scale.

Disruptors and start-up businesses are frequently hindered by the significant limitations of existing third-party e-commerce solution providers. Rather than powering growth, the technological tools that many of these brands use while attempting to penetrate new markets either have too many limitations or are cumbersome and convoluted – and often come at eye-watering price tags. Acuity eradicates these difficulties by combining its next-generation ecommerce platform with a robust portfolio of supportive services, providing small- to medium-sized brands the means to compete against established market leaders through agile growth globally and at scale.

"We realized that most young brands don't compete on the same playing field as their larger, more established rivals when it comes to ecommerce capabilities. We've decided to give them a fair shot by investing in Acuity," explains Anastasios Papadopoulos, CEO of Integrated Management Systems (IMS) and IMS Digital Ventures.
