Winning strategies for delivering “Buy Anywhere, Fulfill Anywhere” customer experiences in B2B

Today’s escalating B2C and B2B customer expectations are driving cross-channel and cross-industry business convergence and transformation.  Retailers, manufacturers, wholesalers, and logistics providers are being impacted by the need to fulfill a customer’s demand anytime, anywhere, ASAP, the way they prefer.

In addition, traditional B2B companies now face an evolving business model that requires support for their traditional B2B customer segment, support for their own ecommerce initiative, and and support their customers’ ecommerce business—including direct-to-store and direct-to-consumer models. This creates a whole new set of challenges.

For both B2B and B2C companies, meeting these demands requires unprecedented collaboration and new approaches across people, processes and technology. In addition, it requires end-to-end visibility, integration and engineering of operations for each segment. 

Unfortunately, most companies aren’t prepared to support this given their current processes and systems.  

Are you ready?  Where do you stand?  And what actions should you take next?
