    Busting the Myth that Your Business is Too Complex to go Online.


    B2B trading is complicated. Special pricing, complex products with multiple SKUs and delivering excellent customer service are just some of the challenges for organisations looking to move their B2B operations online. But with 27% of all B2B transactions set to be done online by 2020 in a market worth $6.7 trillion, the sector can’t afford to resist the move to eCommerce any longer. In this seminar Gavin Masters, Maginus’ Head of eCommerce Consulting, will show how companies in the B2B supply chain can overcome the challenges associated with taking their businesses online. Drawing on Maginus’ experience of helping customers handle the intricacies of B2B eCommerce, Gavin will explain how excellent customer service can be delivered through eCommerce in a B2B environment and the business benefits that can be achieved by making the move.
