B2B platform: myth 2
“I simply dont have enough retailers for a B2B platform to be relevant”
Wrong – all companies, irrespective of size, can benefit from transferring to digital order handling. Perhaps manual order handling is not something you yourself loathe. Your retailers, on the other hand, will most likely prefer and appreciate the possibility to order digitally and without frills

B2B platform myth: 3
“A B2B platform costs a fortune. Even if a B2B platform means a lot of benefits for me and the company I simply cannot afford to invest in one”
