companies around the globe are prioritizing digital transformation. As a result of this, the importance of eCommerce in business-to-business (B2B) relations is increasing.
Fast and easy procurement
One vital role of a B2B eCommerce platform is its ability to provide existing customers with an additional channel to independently order goods and manage their stock without the need for personal interaction. In the pandemic, this offered health and safety benefits, but for the long term it is an effective and convenient way to do business.
While B2B eCommerce growth is not comparable to business to-consumer (B2C) growth, it does follow the same trends. Both sellers and buyers see a positive impact coming from digitalization.
