VaultN | Amsterdam, The Netherlands, 11th August: The games industry has been operating as if it’s still in the physical sales era for too long now. Like the games themselves, it’s time to bring the rest of the sector into the 21st Century.

That’s the vision behind VaultN, the new venture designed to revolutionise digital product distribution. Based out of Amsterdam, VaultN is a supply chain management platform that allows developers, publishers, and retailers to track and manage their products instantly in real-time, completely securely. 

VaultN is designed to consign the random spreadsheets pumped full of hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of product keys and convoluted and disparate distribution management software to history, housing every part of the process in one trackable tool. Using a patent-pending open-API platform, partners can scale, control and manage their digital supply chain and securely transfer digital goods across the entire network.  ​

“It’s 2022, yet the games industry is still using the same physical supply chains it used back when CDs, cartridges, and floppy discs were the order of the day,” says Julian Migura, Co-Founder of VaultN. “Sticking by these old methods costs the industry 15% of global sales. That's $5bn each year on PC games alone with people having to tally up multiple documents and entirely different software systems just to present the simplest of data, tracking a game code from creation through to sale. 

“VaultN is designed to act as an auto-leger that reports exactly what happens when it happens, and one that’s impossible to cheat. Developers and publishers can track exactly where their product is, and who owns it, at the press of a button.”

Developed by entertainment and gaming industry veterans with specialist expertise and unrivaled professional networks, the platform’s first transactions were successfully completed in a closed Beta, with VaultN currently working with major players in the industry to create the new standard in the digital supply chain.   ​

  • DIGITAL WAREHOUSE​ - Control your own Vault to securely store your digital assets allowing alternative source ingestion​.

  • SYNCHRONISATION​ - Automatically generate product pages and update product information in real-time​.

  • NETWORK ​- Manage, connect, and take control of your partnerships and grow your supplier base​.
