Manufacturers struggle with B2B eCommerce platforms for two reasons:
Lack of true B2B features
Watch the video, and we’ll help you avoid these pitfalls in your project.
The world is changing. Manufacturers’ customers want eCommerce.
75% of B2B buyers go online to purchase products, while 62% turn to the web for product research.
Millennials alone make the largest portion of their purchases (38%) directly from manufacturers, over e-marketplaces and distributors.
Manufacturers need to launch eCommerce, both to retain existing customers, and to land new ones.
Yet most “B2B” platforms are actually B2C solutions which don’t work for manufacturers.
B2C platforms weren’t built to map the complexity of manufacturers’ transactions. These platforms struggle to offer critical features like contract/scaled pricing, real-time inventory from the ERP, product restriction by customer, multiple ship-to/sold-to, and more.
Corevist Commerce is different.
We built Corevist Commerce from the ground up, on top of SAP ERP.
Since your ERP business rules drive personalization for each transaction, your ERP is the master system for all business data. That means your eCommerce platform must integrate with the ERP in real time.
This is the Corevist Commerce model. Our platform includes pre-built, configurable integration to SAP. Our 53 integration points drive every transaction for every user—and they slash your cost of data maintenance.
Our flexible architecture makes it easy to launch the solution you need today—then grow when you’re ready.
Onboard customers with a solution they’ll use all the time, like Corevist Order Tracking. When you roll out eCommerce within the same application, customers have already bought in. They’ll see the additional value right away, which makes it easier to transition existing business to B2B eCommerce.
