Business to Business, or B2B, selling channels are ever-changing. Whereas in the past the B2B sales chain comprised of manufacturers producing goods, resellers and wholesalers buying those goods in bulk, and finished with end users purchasing these goods, current consumers expect more. Today’s B2B customers expect faster delivery, more product information, and a broader selection. Important selling channels include marketplaces, eCommerce, direct manufacturing, and digitally-enabled sales teams. With B2B selling, your business can greatly increase profits by removing the middle-man and increase customer loyalty. Sound complicated? With the help of an electronic inventory system such as Order Time, this is process can be made seamless.
