Today’s business buyers demand excellence in personalized commerce anytime, anywhere, through any channel. And they expect manufacturers and distributors to deliver them superior user experience. But B2B sellers must deploy new ecommerce strategies and technology to generate a uniquely helpful experience that attracts and keeps customers. This brave new world of connected ecommerce means complex B2B organizations need to engage digital-first and traditional customers in new and better ways.​

Fast on the way out are old, unconnected computer systems, dysfunctional databases, and manual programs that don’t generate recurring B2B ecommerce sales and sustain customer loyalty. Instead, winning B2B organizations use new applications and services such as artificial intelligence, dynamic pricing, personalization, sustainability, and other emerging digital technology and strategy to meet — and exceed — buyer expectations.​

The webinar will provide attendees with the insights to start building or accelerating an ecommerce strategy that:

  • Generates higher sales and profits.​
  • Attracts and retains loyal customers.​
  • Gives B2B buyers a transparent, personalized and omnichannel purchasing experience that helps them do their jobs better.​
  • Develops a digital technology infrastructure for more efficient and productive operations for both internal and external stakeholders.
