Move Your B2B Business Online

The Road to Digitization

If you’re a manufacturer or distributor still trying to run your sales business with legacy systems, limited automation, and no dedicated B2B eCommerce strategy, you’ll soon be outpaced in what’s become a digital footrace.

With B2B buyer demand for digital buying experiences at an all-time high, the manufacturing industry is shifting from its traditional reliance on partner-driven sales to make way for more digital self-service.

To attract and retain clients in this landscape, B2B brands know they need to move online, but they aren’t always sure where to begin. Aleran has proudly helped hundreds of companies and brands move their B2B businesses online.

Making B2B eCommerce the Center of Your Growth Strategy

Personalized

B2B eCommerce transactions must allow for personalized, self-service commerce experiences across all sales channels. In addition, content should be easily localized for language, currency, product availability and more.

Customer-centric

Creating positive customer experiences is the heart of modern B2B eCommerce. Today, that means including the features and experiences customers value most: personalized self-service portals, and quick and intuitive ordering.

Efficient

From syncing inventories to processing complex product transactions, high-volume B2B eCommerce benefits from the automation and streamlining of many time-intensive administrative tasks.

Connected

B2B eCommerce systems must be able to integrate business-critical functions through pre-built connectors and APIs for flexible, easy, cost-efficient customizations.
