The Business to Consumer or B2C market has comfortably lived online for almost 20 years. People are accustomed to researching and ordering their purchases online and it’s only natural for this behavior to cross over into Business to Business (B2B). To remain competitive in today’s market, businesses should consider a B2B eCommerce strategy and invest in a robust platform that can improve operational efficiency, expand customer reach, and increase the bottom-line.
We’re proud to announce that OroCommerce, the only eCommerce platform built from the ground up for B2B eCommerce, has partnered with E7 Solutions to deliver a complete solution for B2B businesses looking to go online.
E7 is a complete B2B eCommerce site design, development and deployment firm. They provide complete software solutions for industries from automotive and education to manufacturing and healthcare. “E7 Solutions is a perfect solution partner for OroCommerce, not only because of their focus on B2B clients, but as a full-service software development and consulting agency, they can provide all of the customizations and integrations that OroCommerce clients will need.” said Jary Carter, Chief Revenue Officer at OroCommerce.
The partnership was a natural fit. E7 is committed to excellence and has strong PHP/Symfony development skills and deep understanding of the B2B eCommerce business owners’ needs. Their core values of integrity, continuous improvement, and intense focus are perfectly aligned with Oro and OroCommerce. E7 chose the OroCommerce platform because of their attention to the smallest details: custom pricing scenarios, client logins with multiple privilege levels, access to previous orders with quick reorder capability, support for purchase orders with multiple payment options, product bundling, bulk orders and much more. “The more we work with OroCommerce, the more impressed we are with the robust functionality of the platform,” said Edmond Delude, CEO for E7 Solutions. “OroCommerce makes it possible for any size business to have a feature-rich eCommerce site, and it allows us to spend time on integrations, UI/UX, and—thanks to their open API—we can provide the customizations our clients need.”
B2B eCommerce is continuing to expand its rapid growth. For example, research conducted by Frost & Sullivan indicates that B2B online sales will reach $6.7 trillion by 2020.
