B2B PORTAL DEVELOPMENT

AUTOMATE YOUR WORK WITH WHOLESALE CLIENTS AND DISTRIBUTORS

WHAT IS A B2B PORTAL

B2B portal is an online platform that makes trade between companies more convenient.

With this type of B2B eCommerce website, you’ll step up your cooperation with distributors, dealers, wholesalers, retailers, or any other partners. Portal is suitable for bulk sales, order management, and document exchange.

B2B portal offers benefits for both suppliers and buyers. Suppliers will save time on interactions with clients and take the load of sales and support teams. In turn, buyers will be able to look for products in an online catalog, get help, and place orders with no need for phone calls. With these and many additional features, you'll reach new audiences and make new loyal customers using your B2B website.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

1. WE DESIGN A PORTAL PRECISELY FOR YOUR BUSINESS

We research your niche and tailor an individual solution exactly to your company’s goals and workflows, ensuring you’ll get the most out of your investment.

2. INTEGRATION WITH YOUR SYSTEM

We’ll integrate a portal with your accounting and planning apps. In case you don’t have any automation software yet, we’ll gladly build an ERP system for you.

3. CONNECTING YOUR PARTNERS TO THEIR ACCOUNTS

You decide who gets access to your portal. Each of your trusted clients will receive an individual login and password.

4. YOUR CLIENTS NOW HAVE ACCESS TO ALL THE DATA THEY NEED

Clients get all the information about the goods, stock availability, delivery and payment terms. There is also a built-in support chat.

5. ORDERS AND TRANSACTIONS GO ONLINE

Your partners pick products in a convenient online catalog. You can set tier and individual pricing. There is no need to call to checkout.

6. CLIENTS CAN TRACK ORDER STATUSES IN THEIR ACCOUNTS

Your partners can check order progress and deal history in their personal accounts. The system generates bills and invoices for every order.

B2B PORTAL BENEFITS

01

IT’S CONVENIENT
FOR CLIENTS

According to Statista, 93% of B2B buyers prefer to place orders online. At the same time, 72% of B2B clients would like to have self-service through a personal cabinet. The portal gives these opportunities to your clients, increasing their loyalty.

02

BOOSTED
PRODUCTIVITY

Communication issues and human error decrease companies' productivity by 20-30%, according to McKinsey. For example, on average managers spend 150 hours a year searching for documents. Integration of B2B-portal, ERP and document management systems solves these problems.

03

LOWER
CHURN RATE

With manual inventory counting, stock availability is incorrect 37% of the time, as shown in a survey from PR Newswire. Clients waste time trying to order goods that are out of stock, become frustrated, and leave for another supplier. In contrast, the B2B portal integrated with ERP shows accurate inventory balances in real-time.
