Like it or not, Amazon Business is a force to contend with in B2B ecommerce, with some analysts projecting its online sales will hit $20 billion next year. As it moved into B2B ecommerce, Amazon brought many of the convenience features it pioneered in online retailing, including free and fast shipping, website personalization and expansive product selections. That’s forcing all manufacturers, wholesalers and distributors to raise their ecommerce game. This webinar will provide insights into how and whether to sell on Amazon Business, how companies can improve their own business-facing web and mobile sites, why they need to integrate them with back-end business software, how companies must operate more integrated supply chains to have the right products customers want and the best practices required to compete in the increasingly competitive arena of B2B ecommerce.
