By contracting Alpha212 B2B Commerce solutions, companies can:

- Significantly reduce ongoing eCommerce development and maintenance costs
- Increase time-to-market, customer retention and loyalty
- Free up in-house resources to focus on core business
Selling online and on mobile devices represents a significant new opportunity for B2B companies.
B2B companies that wait too long to implement eCommerce assume a big risk.
Self-service tools are changing the way in which B2B customers interact with companies.
69% of B2B companies currently selling direct to business partners online expect to stop publishing their print catalogs altogether within the next 5 years.
The research is quite clear on this one: B2B companies identified omni-channel customers as their best overall customers.
Online-only customers are more likely to add additional items, order products in bulk and make repeat purchases than offline-only customers.
Focus on your core business and on growing your revenue across all channels, rather than investing time, money, and resources into building and maintaining an eCommerce platform. As your strategic partner, Alpha212 will constantly update and improve your B2B Commerce platform as your business grows and your needs change.
 Key Trends In BtoB eCommerce For 2013, Forrester Research, Inc., October 18, 2012.
 "Online And Mobile Are Transforming B2B Commerce", October 2013. In this study, Forrester surveyed 717 B2B companies across three major geographies (North America, Europe/Middle East/Africa (EMEA), and the Asia Pacific region), or an average about 240 respondents per geography. Nearly 50% of all respondents, or 353 companies across all three major geographies, indicated they are “currently selling direct to business partners online (B2B).” Each of the three major geographies (North America, Europe/Middle East/Africa (EMEA) and the Asia Pacific region), produced a minimum of 100 respondents that are “currently selling direct to business partners online (B2B).” All respondents represented companies that produce a minimum of $250 million in total sales annually, and who were personally responsible for or deeply involved with selling the company’s products or services online. In addition, Forrester conducted 7 in-depth interviews with a variety of B2B eCommerce professionals responsible for maintaining their respective online selling organizations. Questions to the B2B survey participants focused on eCommerce and multichannel buying behavior, incorporating tools and technologies into the buying experience, and identifying details about the international organizational structure required to deliver world-class B2B eCommerce. The study began in May 2013 and was completed in July 2013.
