About

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.

Leveling the Playing Field for Small and Midsized Online Retailers

Many small business ecommerce entrepreneurs initially run their businesses with basic accounting software and spreadsheets. After a few years of growth they often find themselves wrangling a variety of applications for:

  • Inventory
  • Order Management
  • Customer History
  • Personnel
  • Supply Chain

They may know bigger companies manage all those tasks and more with a single ERP system, but often believe ERP is too complex and expensive.

Now, a new generation of intuitive cloud-based services allows them to get started without having to recruit costly experts and add only the features they need for future growth.

In this webinar, George Lawrie, VP and Principal Analyst of Forrester Research will explain what cloud-based systems mean for small and midsized businesses. Joining us will be Vice President of Supply Chain and Information Technology Erica Stevens of Dylan’s Candy Bar.

These experts will answer your questions live on-air and present how small and medium size businesses can use technology to level the playing field.
