Omnia’s founders have over 30 years of experience in all aspects of retail: software development for retailers, retail strategy consulting and hands-on commercial retail experience.
HERMAN DE JAGER founded his first company Connective Power in 1995, developing an omnichannel commerce platform for retailers when e-commerce just coming up (and before Google was even founded). The Amyx platform is an integrated webshop platform, cash register for physical stores and an ERP system for medium-sized retailers. This lead to great insights into the full spectrum of IT systems for retailers.
SANDER ROOSE gained practical retail experience working within Customer Business Development at Procter&Gamble. After P&G, Sander – together with two former eBay business developers – became owner of online strategy consultancy firm Harvest, which was later acquired by Naspers (OLX). Sander then founded COMMERCE SQUARED , a boutique retail strategy consulting firm focusing fully on digital projects.
The Omnia team combines cutting-edge technical skills of software developers and UX specialists, with the retail experience and data science skills of former strategy consultants. Omnia believes it is still Day 1 in terms of innovative automation within retail.
