Global business-to-business (B2B) eCommerce sales are predicted to reach over $6.6 trillion by 2020, surpassing business-to-consumer (B2C) valued at $3.2 trillion by 2020. The United States (US) alone will generate over $1.9 trillion in sales by that time. With this rise in B2B eCommerce and the digital commerce world, B2B is predicted to become more like B2C. Though both practices involve customers and business, B2B eCommerce is an intricate environment and has a different level of complexity than B2C with pricing fluctuations, customer-specific pricing, volume ordering, and special product configuration. Customer purchase B2B eCommerce platforms based on TCO, features, integration capabilities, workflow and procurement system, CRM, PIM, and OMS. Popular industries using B2B eCommerce solutions include wholesale, distribution, digital/software services, retail, and others. There are many different business models in B2B for which B2B eCommerce platforms can be used, including B2B2C, B2C2B, and B2B and B2C combined. Enterprise and mid-size businesses are investing more in a B2B eCommerce solution than smaller businesses, but this is predicted to change as vendors innovate their eCommerce solutions to be more intuitive and less IT heavy for ease-of-use and implementation. Some businesses are creating their own solution for B2B eCommerce, but these solutions often lack the robust features and integration capabilities they need to pull their backend and front-end together, resulting in an incomplete and disorganized solution. Furthermore, with the digital revolution, customers expect things to be online and intuitive, desiring a self-service model with personalized and targeted B2B sales accessible from anywhere at any time.B2B eCommerce platform solutions provided by expert vendors in the space coupled with system integrators and key partners for deployment will give B2B customers and organizations the self-service and intuitive experiences they need.
