How TradeCentric for SAP Commerce Cloud optimizes B2B eCommerce flows
A strong eCommerce proposition has effectively become a prerequisite for any enterprise engaged in B2B sales. B2B suppliers invest heavily in sophisticated eCommerce capabilities to create a compelling digital experience that attracts buyers to their site, promotes higher volume sales, and retains existing customers.
Similarly, B2B buyers are equally heavily invested in advanced eProcurement platforms, with an objective to maximize the value of this investment by centralizing and standardizing the entire procurement process within the platform.
With global B2B eCommerce spend hitting almost $8 trillion in 2022, and projected to grow at a CAGR of 20.2% from 2023 to 2028, enabling connectivity between these two systems will become a critical success factor across the board.
TradeCentric powers integration between leading eCommerce systems such as SAP Commerce Cloud and eProcurement solutions, resulting in optimized end-to-end B2B eCommerce flows and maximized value for vendor and customer alike.
Via 1-to-1 integrations, purchasers connect directly and seamlessly with the eCommerce site through their eProcurement platform, at every stage of the transaction flow.
The solution covers every interaction in the process, from catalog PunchOut to orders, invoices, quotes, acknowledgements, notifications and marketplace integrations.
TradeCentric for SAP Commerce Cloud can be scaled to meet the needs of any sized B2B eCommerce function. This is vital for enterprises looking to keep pace as eCommerce becomes the de-facto standard for business-to-business transactions.
Further, integration can help protect B2B vendors and customers from the supply chain uncertainty and volatility that has become part of the commercial landscape since 2020, by creating efficient, robust and flexible end-to-end transaction flows.
