scrappel is a digital B2B marketplace for recyclable materials which manages the entire process end-to-end: negotiations take place directly in the app and participants pay through a payment system complete with an escrow function. That way merchandisers can buy and sell securely and risk-free. There are additional services, such as factoring by the exclusive partner Euler Hermes or the option for arranging transportation through integrated transport companies – digital of course!
scrappel came into being as an innovation project by the recycling company ALBA Group. Here, experts from a variety of fields defined the goals and functions of an application with the aim of creating more efficiency, transparency and trust in the scrap material trade.
The solution partner ARITHNEA, a competent partner for agile solutions, took over the implementation of the e-commerce backend based on the microservices offered by commercetools. Thanks to the established collaboration between the partners involved, the app was ready to be launched after only six months.
