B2B e-catalogue solutions helping to solve

Supporting punch-out requirements

Many of your organisation’s customers now no longer wish to house your product data and content in their systems. The overheads to maintain it are heavy and many of your customers are looking to be able to punch-out (punch-in from your perspective) into your catalogue to order what they need.

B2B sales channels

In today’s world more and more sales, including B2B sales, are done using supplier online catalogues. To be able to support this, and provide new sales channels, having a B2B e-catalogue is becoming more relevant and necessary to maintain your customers.

Sales order integration

Offering a B2B e-Catalogue means your organisation would be able to leverage further integration of sales orders it produces, or if it supports the reverse purchase order functionality the sales orders your customers produce from the B2B e-catalogue as EDI documents. Meaning integration and less manual documents.

Reaching new markets

Not having an e-catalogue or B2B solution in this day and age means your organisation is potentially not able to leverage from the changes in business practices and making it harder to potentially reach new markets or opportunities. Contractually many buyers now require you to provide a B2B e-catalogue and punch-in capabilities.

Key features of B2BE's B2B e-Catalogue solution

Customer punch-in support

Being able to offer your customers punch-out support is an advantage to your organisation and competitively as a supplier. It also means less catalogue integration with your customers as you will now maintain the data and content so it’s always right. B2BE’s B2B e-Catalogue can support your customer’s punch-in requirements and also the reverse purchase order functionality if they require and support it.

Customised access control

The e-catalogue is fully customisable based on roles and content so it means your products can be restricted by user or profile so your customers can only order what you sell to the customer or what they’re restricted to purchase.

Structured product variables

The structuring of a products variables in terms of product groups and attributes is very relevant to ensure logically your customers can find the product quickly and easily which the B2BE B2B e-Catalogue supports.

Rich content

The B2B e-catalogue is able to support all types of rich content to improve the user experience. B2B sales often rely on detailed supporting information so the e-catalogue can support technical drawings or documentation, images and other supporting material to help with the sales process.

Automated content upload

Sales orders that are integrated into your ERP or business system from the e-catalogue solves the traffic one way. However, you still need to get product data into the catalogue and using B2BE’s EDI environment this can be automated and the catalogue, or other supporting data, mapped into your B2B e-catalogue so updates are automated.
