The B2B or Business-to-Business landscape has been through a significant amount of digital transformation in the last few years and according to Forrester forecasts, is expected to even outperform B2C or Business-to-Consumers sales by at least two folds in 2020.
B2C giants like Amazon and Alibaba have already set the bar so high that the customers will not engage with a brand or website which isn’t robust and user-friendly and B2B companies are now beginning to realize the importance of Customer Experience in eCommerce strategy.
B2B buyers are familiar with brands and interfaces like Amazon and expect the same level of user experience in all of their online purchase, even for more complex products (heavy industrial equipment, configurable hardware, etc) and other professional purchases.
Meanwhile, Marketplaces continue to take market share and encroach into B2B space with a digital edge forcing manufacturers and distributors to become a one-stop shop and serve all customer needs as they have the benefit and an upper edge of being more advanced.
Moreover, B2C Marketplaces understand their customers and customer behavior far better than any average B2B company as they already have their platforms in place to backup a huge eCommerce effort and their customer experience is already well established.
Consequently, B2B companies have to create a lucrative relationship with marketplaces in order to expand their reach and help boost sales.
