Bring your B2B wholesale into the digital era
What does B2B wholesale got to do with the digital era? Well, the adoption of eCommerce technology for B2C sales is rather common, if not mandatory, for resellers, brands, and manufacturers. B2C eCommerce has proven its worth in efficiency, customer acceptance, user experience, and availability.
Based on these parameters, it should be obvious that they shouldn’t be limited to B2C sales. Wouldn’t you want your B2B wholesale business to benefit from cost-efficiency, availability, and a custom user experience?
B2B wholesale often means lots of paper and manual work.
If you’re in the wholesale business, there is a good chance that you have your products and prices listed in different spreadsheets. One for each market/segment. If you do, you are also aware of the amount of work that goes into the setup and distribution of these. Not to mention the distribution and reminding your customers to save the latest version. And every time they don’t, you need to follow up with the customer with an update of the order, which is obviously even more work.
Some wholesalers have adopted some kind of digital technology as an attempt to move out of the spreadsheet era. This is often based on legacy platforms that are out of date, not very user-friendly, and unreasonably expensive. Or – even more common – eCommerce platforms that simply are not suitable to handle the complexity of B2B wholesale (because they are intended for B2C and not B2B).
B2B and wholesale brands using one of these two options might as well stick to spreadsheets, emails, and phone calls.
What should B2B brands and wholesalers do instead?
Well, we believe that brands selling B2B and wholesale should invest in a contemporary eCommerce solution. No more spreadsheets, no more old-school legacy platforms, and no more “hacked” B2C shops. They should just use Turis.
