I am interested. What are the next steps?

Why is banbutsu interesting for me?

On the one hand, banbutsu enables you to provide your customers with extended offers and, on the other hand, to use new sales channels for your products and services.
The possibilities are manifold, but also individual, because banbutsu is not a plug & play solution, but rather a modular kit.

Once integrated, the banbutsu technology can also be scaled quickly and easily and can be extended to additional countries, markets, etc.

The best way for us to talk about your possibilities is to schedule a short video call. We look forward to getting to know you.

Do I qualify as a partner for banbutsu?

In principle, the banbutsu technology can be used for all products, services, and offers across industries, only the integration differs from partner to partner.

Thus, with high probability you can also become a partner.
To best assess your options, we suggest getting to know each other in a personal video call.

What makes banbutsu special?

In a nutshell, banbutsu is individually customizable to your company, can be integrated directly and easily and appears, if you wish, in your own look & feel.

How individual can I shape my offer?

The banbutsu technology can be customized and configured to meet both the company's needs and those of its customers. For instance, partner offers with whom a company does not wish to cooperate can be hidden on the basis of parameters and rules.

How is customer satisfaction ensured?

To ensure that both customers and partners feel valued, we rely on personal support who can be reached by phone or e-mail and can help with questions and problems.

How long does it take for the integration?

This depends on how compatible your current service is and how much configuration is required for your use case.
After an initial assessment, you will receive a transparent cost estimation, on the basis of which you can then make further decisions.

What do the terms … mean?

White-label is the technological approach of developing software in such a way that it can be seamlessly integrated into a wide variety of applications from different manufacturers. Further, it can be adapted to the company's own look and feel. banbutsu is invisible to customers and is, so to speak, a technology in the background.

An ecosystem describes the technical and content-related connection of the most diverse partner offers within an application. All partners in the ecosystem are at eye level and contribute equally to the best possible user experience.
