Premium eCommerce and logistics platform for West-African markets

African markets are gaining an increasing amount of attention amongst western businesses. Yoonema.com is an eCommerce platform for West-African markets, that simplifies the process of purchasing European and American products. Yoonema reached out to Upside in early 2019 with the challenge of building a proof of concept product that would help in validating market-specific requirements. By the ability to react quickly and
excellent development capabilities, the product later turned into a long-term partnership, in which Upside designs and builds technology solutions supporting Yoonema’s exponential growth.
