Digital Goodie, the Finnish creator of a digital platform for Headless Connected Commerce, has announced it has acquired Maginus, a UK-based company developing e-commerce software and technology solutions for mid-market retailers and distributors.
The combination is said to create one of the most scalable industry players with a complete suite of e-commerce applications.
