Customers today are reliant on technology. Within minutes of them discovering a need, they can go online and find six different vendors who will sell them exactly what they are looking for. Because of this, companies more than ever face the challenge of distinguishing themselves from their competitors. The answer to this problem is to establish a B2B (Business to Business) eCommerce platform that establishes a superior online presence.
B2B eCommerce is the platform that allows businesses to purchase products and services from other businesses online. Simply put, it is the most efficient way for vendors to sell to companies. Customers today are more picky and impatient than ever. The quicker and easier the sales process is, the more likely the customer will be left satisfied. With a B2B eCommerce platform implemented, your customers can visit your website and immediately place an order for exactly what they want.
CPQ (Configure Price Quote) is known primarily as a software tool used internally for salespeople. CPQ allows sales reps to access timely, accurate, relevant information that allows them to quote and customize orders with ease. This increased efficiency reduces the length of the sales cycle and allows them to close deals faster and increase productivity. What is less known about CPQ, though, is that these same processes can also be used on the external side of the sales process.
This is where the B2B eCommerce side of CPQ comes into play. By making your CPQ tool available to customers online, you are giving them the tools to customize an order and adjust it to fit their needs and price point in minutes. This is especially valuable for businesses that offer configurable or flexible products, such as manufacturing, retail, wholesale, etc.
Businesses are looking for self-service information and the ability to make a purchase directly from vendors online. They need a foundation that can provide B2B customers the same ease of use that B2C customers experience. A sales portal can take care of these needs, all while providing an all-in-one sales solution that makes selling easier than ever. Whether a salesperson, dealer, or customer is the user, a sales portal will enhance the online shopping experience and eliminate errors.
