The Nexternal Business to Business (B2B) module is designed to accommodate companies that wish to sell products to a pre-existing customer list via the internet. While Nexternal clients have utilized the B2B module for a multitude of purposes, the following scenarios are particularly appropriate:
- You are a manufacturer or distributor whose customers are businesses in the next tier of the sales chain (e.g. retailers), and wish to enable those customers to place orders online.
- You are a manufacturer or distributor who utilizes sales representatives in your sales process, and wish to enable those representatives to place orders for their customers online.
When your customers or sales reps enter the B2B store, they see up to the minute prices and inventories of the products in your catalog. They can place orders 24 hours a day, 7 days a week from anywhere in the world just by accessing the internet. The hassles and errors inherent in placing phone and fax orders are eliminated. Furthermore, your customers or sales reps can instantly check the status of their pending orders and update their contact information. The net result? Costs decrease on all sides, your customers' satisfaction increases, and your sales increase as well.
As a business executive, the advantages go further still. The reporting capabilities offered in the Order Management System allow you to instantly view real-time sales and store activity data, enabling you to take a proactive approach toward improving sales. The Mail Wizard provides the means to instantly notify targeted segments of your customer base about new products and promotions. Indeed, the tools to grow your business are always at your fingertips.
The B2B module is a password-protected system, ensuring that only approved customers can see the store's products and their prices. The storefront is much the same as that of the business to consumer shopping cart, utilizing Nexternal's onscreen shopping cart technology to streamline the order process.
When you enter the B2B demonstration, the customer login credentials will be populated for you.
Simply click the login button and place an order as if you are a retailer purchasing from FirstFairway.
