Our trading platforms offer unmatched access to primary industry markets. Cream is a marketplace software that makes running your business easier, creating high-value, global opportunities for both buyers and sellers.
We are a team of unique individuals, based in New Zealand, who are passionate about forming partnerships, customer experience and cutting edge technology. Our people are at the core of our values. We stand at the forefront of innovation. In 2017 we were highly commended by the NZ innovation Council for the Cream technology platform.
We think of our customers as partners, utilising collaboration to create intuitive and scalable solutions that work. We develop, tailor and refine the platform to deliver unique experiences.
HOW IT WORKS
The platform simplifies the sales process
A seller creates an offer on the platform.
Buyers receive a notification that there is a new offer.
Buyer reviews the offer and can trade or place a counter bid.
When a trade is completed both parties will instantly receive a detailed trade confirmation.
Internal trade documents are generated.
Transfer of goods and funds are arranged between both parties.

While we can’t think of a world without B2C eCommerce, the B2B development is still in its early stages. We strongly believe in the benefits of online sales platforms and chose to partner up with Cream after careful considerations. Cream has proven to be an excellent partner in fine-tuning and adapting the platform to our specific needs. While we are still innovating and improving, we are very happy with the supportive and proactive approach Cream has displayed.
