What is the B2B E-Commerce Seminar for Manufacturers?

It’s a curated round-up of the best internal and external experts who are ready to provide a crash course in how the B2B e-commerce space has changed for a non-traditional retailer like manufacturers, distributors, and wholesalers.

B2B buyers expect more from their online buying experience. Ease and speed are key drivers: ¼ of buyers want easier and faster checkout, easier repeat reordering, quicker delivery, and improved tracking are a priority. Recognizing that customers are at the center of their success, manufacturers have taken two roads to solve their CX challenge: investing in a new e-commerce platform (36%) or investing in more personnel to support their existing technology (35%). But which route is best for your business as you exist today?
