The Direct to Consumer (D2C or DTC) business model is disrupting business all over the world.

From mattresses to insurance, razors to vitamins, cars to cosmetics – almost any category you can imagine is being shaken-up by brands looking to establish a direct relationship with customers.

But it’s not easy. With a dizzying array of technology, platform and marketing choices to make you can waste millions trying to get D2C right. See just some of those choices here.

 

D2C Systems is an independent technology and marketing partner to help you crack the D2C code and deliver a profitable D2C business model far more effectively than a traditional development partner.

We’re not wedded to any particular platform, technology or marketing mix. We can provide anything from advice, to a specific technology stack recommendation, ready-to-go white label system, full D2C system build – or simply run a project to fast-track an innovative feature or fix a badly performing marketing campaign.

“The D2C Systems team are the most pragmatic, concise and business-minded technology teams I’ve ever encountered.

They get to the nub of the D2C business opportunity – and customer experience required to deliver on that promise – then they get on and execute with an absolute laser focus on ROI.”

Russ Thomas – Omni Consulting

“When the D2C Systems team developed the fatso.co.nz subscription DVD model it was an absolute game-changer in the market and years ahead of the competition.

These guys have been at the absolute forefront of international D2C innovation and the development of e-commerce and subscription-based businesses. More to the point they understand that the technology is just a means to an end – they use the direct to consumer relationship to listen to customers and understand exactly how to market direct to consumer brands.”

Why D2C Systems?

 

Transparent

Finding a winning D2C combination means making a huge number of technology choices, full of potential pitfalls & blind alleys. Trust us, we’ve made many of those mistakes in the past 22 years. That’s why we’re fiercely independent, transparent & technology agnostic. We’re not here to sell any particular technology. We don’t re-sell any technology - and build most of our platforms in an open source environment. Our mission is to use these insights to save you time, money and heartache - and unlock the power of a profitable D2C system that just works.

Agile with sales focus

The world has enough tech disaster stories of hopelessly under-delivered scope and ridiculous cost blow outs. Often the long-winded solution is out of date by the time its built or not fit for purpose. We’ve learnt that agile is the way to go. Keep it lean. Get to market. Develop key functionality in short sprints, test, learn and change if need be. But it’s not enough to be agile. You need to build technology with a sales purpose. See how we do that with our method here.

Genuine partners

Whilst we’re a business like any other, we’re not just a software development business. We’ve started-up and built D2C businesses for ourselves – so we know what it’s like to spend your own money and the excitement of bringing a category-busting idea to market. So whilst we’re happy to work on a straight fee basis, we also offer a range of business partnership options that help share risk and reward – such as revenue share, equity partnerships, JV’s etc.
