AFTER JOINING FORCES WITH SQLI IN 2017, STAR REPUBLIC REBRANDS TO BECOME PART OF THE PAN-EUROPEAN GROUP

Over the past four years, Star Republic, SQLI’s Swedish subsidiary, has had the opportunity to work closely on projects with the Group, and earn the trust of clients such as Carlsberg, Tele2, Afound and many more. Now they are ready to move forward as part of the SQLI brand.

A LEADING E-COMMERCE PLAYER

Founded in 2003, Star Republic has become one of the leading suppliers of e-commerce solutions in Northern Europe. During their years in the business, it has become clear to them that e-commerce is much more than IT and advertising. It requires a full understanding of digital commerce, from communication to technology, data analysis and logistics.

A FULL-SERVICE DIGITAL COMPANY

As SQLI’s vision is to become the leading European supplier of e-commerce and digital solutions, it has handpicked the best players in order to build a stronger offering and extend the group's coverage across Europe. As a result, Star Republic, soon to be known as SQLI Nordics, will be able to offer its clients the following services:

• E-Commerce
• Digital Marketing & Design
• Data & Insights
• Technology & transformation
• Experience platforms
• Digital Consulting

Renaud Detcheverry, CEO, SQLI International says: "SQLI aims to become Europe's obvious choice when it comes to full-scale solutions at the forefront of e-commerce, both technological as well as experiential. In order to achieve this, we are always on the lookout for the best digital service companies across Europe, and in Sweden Star Republic was the best partner. They are the right size. They have drive, technical competence and a strong strategic vision. Not to mention the personal chemistry that was there right from the start.”

BUILIDING BUSINESS ACROSS BORDERS

Ecommerce is part of a new generation of business that is growing at an exponential rate and SQLI’s customers require expertise in customer behaviour across multiple markets. This appetite for crossing borders is accelerating as SQLI’s success is driven by over 2000 employees in 13 countries. And Star Republic is delighted to part of this - all the way.

Mikael Andersson, CEO, Star Republic/SQLI Nordics says: “Ever since we started out in 2003, we have been synonymous with digital disruption with a business sense. Our extensive expertise in ecommerce together with our passion for what we do drives us to dare to do things differently. We want to make money for our clients and have fun while doing so. Now we are ready to take the next step within Europe and for us SQLI is the perfect partner for doing exactly that.”
