Collaboration between the two vendors is designed to help B2B companies selling through the Salesforce Commerce Cloud ecommerce platform to also reach buyers via procurement or ERP software.

TradeCentric specializes in helping B2B companies boost sales and customer experience by supporting connected commerce through procurement software punchout to their preferred suppliers’ ecommerce sites and integration with enterprise resource planning software for purchase order and invoice automation.

Now, it has updated how its technology integrates with the Salesforce Commerce Cloud ecommerce platform. The updates were designed to let online sellers using Salesforce Commerce Cloud connect with buyers who want to purchase products through their procurement or ERP software system.
