Drive mobility, efficiency & flexibility in B2B companies

What we even need in terms of digital solutions is constantly changing as the business and marketplace move forward. So is it actually possible to stay ahead of the curve or will you always be scrambling to adapt?

Being more flexible, efficient and mobile in the workplace is becoming increasingly important as society shifts away from the typical fixed locations and 9 to 5 work patterns of old.

Technology is the obvious key to this, but it is not as simple as buying the latest gadgets and software.

Traditional business models like Wholesale and Distribution and other B2B companies, who rely heavily on ERP systems to manage their complex pricing and inventory structures, worry they won’t fit the digital mould.

What we even need in terms of digital solutions is constantly changing as the business and marketplace move forward.

And with the landscape changing constantly, investing in solutions that will be out of date before you’ve learnt how to use them just isn’t viable.

Is it possible to stay ahead of the curve or will you always be scrambling to adapt?

Perhaps right now you just need an app for a handful of sales reps out taking orders on the road, but in time you will need more. 

Perhaps your customers are increasingly asking to order online, or access account information like invoices, or you want to sell into new markets. You need an eCommerce solution. 

Perhaps your customers are always on the go and now want to place orders from their mobile devices as and when they need to. You need a customer app. 

Perhaps your staff could be put to better use in the company instead of taking sales orders by

phone and email, manually inputting them into the ERP system. You need an integrated ordering solution.

Perhaps one day you finally land that deal with the large multinational, but they want to order through their own systems. You need an eProcurement solution. 

Perhaps you start selling to the B2C market and want your products found on digital and social marketplaces like Amazon and Facebook. 

Perhaps, perhaps, perhaps….

Who knows what the future will hold but the simple fact is that your needs and how you and your customers do business will change and the tools you will need to compliment this will too.

Having one digital platform that fully integrates with your ERP system and has multiple solutions, like eCommerce, eProcurement, mobile apps and more, is a no-brainer.
