What Business-to-Business (B2B) challenges does xTupleCommerce solve?
Some businesses have eCommerce systems integrated with their ERP that isn't designed, developed nor supported by the ERP vendor. Nightmares come upgrade time! Some businesses have a detached eCommerce system working in parallel with their enterprise software applications. These approaches are outdated and not sustainable — or profitable — solutions. xTupleCommerce solves many efficiency pain points for you and your customers. Let's name a few:
- Eliminate Double Entry — Your staff will save SO much time with the real-time integration between xTupleCommerce and your ERP, you may need less staff or be able to repurpose them for a more efficient workforce. Information on the website updates as soon as the update happens in the ERP. So much winning!
- Deliver Customer-specific Pricing — After negotiating custom prices, your customer wants to know — immediately — what they will have to pay for your products. This system shows them all pricing based on their specific pricing schedule.
- Optimize User Experience — Presenting a unique user experience for each of your customer types is easy with xTupleCommerce. Perhaps some customers see some products and other customers see all of your products. Customize the system any way you want, any way your customers desire.
- Sell More with Saved Carts — Your customer can manage multiple orders by saving their cart(s) to their account. Then they can return and quickly checkout once they are ready. Easier buying process means buying more often.
- Speed up Purchasing Process — Help your customers reorder and check-out faster by improving re-purchasing. Customers can create lists of their most needed products. Faster order processing means customers come back to you, rather than your competition.
- Offer Flexible Payment Options — You may want to invoice a customer in a variety of ways. Provide whichever options you like; Credit Cards, Bill me later, Account Credit, etc. More options means more sales.
