Businesses are continuously expecting more from their suppliers and the ability to order online can make purchasing a fast, simple and more cost-effective solution for many companies. Therefore, having an online presence can be invaluable for wholesalers and distributors, however it is important that the time and money invested into this venture is done so wisely.
B2B companies looking to trade online often simply require a quick, hassle-free step into the web that connects seamlessly with their offline trading channels. Without having this online presence and easy gateway for clients to conveniently place their orders, businesses are not only missing a crucial modern trading channel from their arsenal which limits their potential revenue, but also an important tool to help deliver better customer service.
What’s more without an online portal for customers to place their orders, businesses can find the productivity of sales staff suffer as they spend more time raising orders being placed by phone, email and other offline channels. This means staff spend more time manually raising orders and less time focused on looking at where there is opportunity for extra profitability to be made. Taking all this into account, businesses selling to trade customers should be striving for an easy-to-deploy online portal that ensures strong back-office connectivity, clear online visibility and a simple way for customers to place their orders.
