IBM Launches B2B Commerce

IBM launched B2B Commerce based on IBM's WebSphere Commerce software platform. IBM B2B Commerce transforms the complex B2B buying process by providing customers with a more engaging and simplified experience that ensures they can easily find and purchase the products they need across any channel or device. B2B organizations can quickly build these advanced B2B digital storefronts in just minutes with no technical experience required. While the US B2B ecommerce market was predicted to reach $559 billion in 2013 according to Forrester Research more than twice as big as B2C ecommerce sales a vast technology gap remains in how businesses engage, buy and sell products and services from one another. Most B2B organizations still rely on inadequate systems to engage the customer from online catalogs to manual sales processes that make it difficult to execute and manage increasingly complex B2B transactions. As mobile, social and digital channels become the standard in consumer transactions, B2B buyers want to engage with the same ease and simplicity that they expect as a typical consumer. Delivered through the IBM Smarter Commerce initiative and powered by the company's market leading WebSphere Commerce solution, IBM B2B Commerce provides new drag-and-drop features that make it easy for organizations to build engaging B2B storefronts right out of the box. The solution helps B2B organizations quickly model complex buying scenarios and procurement processes while also supporting extended routes to market with business partners. By bringing omni-channel capabilities to B2B customers, partners and field sales teams, organizations can expect an increase in customer satisfaction and revenue while reducing total cost of ownership and the need for hands-on support. By infusing the power and simplicity of engaging consumer experiences into a B2B environment, IBM B2B Commerce allows companies to more easily execute even the most complex B2B transactions from purchasing simple replacement parts to entire systems. IBM B2B Commerce drives seamless customer interaction for B2B commerce across all touchpoints including traditional field sales and the value chain of partners, resellers and distributors. Through a single powerful platform, IBM B2B Commerce provides a differentiated commerce experience across all of a company's business models to drive better customer engagement and increased sales.
