b2b2dot0 offers a real-time cloud-based eCommerce solution that reduces costs, labor, risk, and Days Sales Outstanding by extending SAP data and business processes to the online ordering process. B2B buyers get accurate, real-time, and personalized information as well as online access to official order documents. Buyers are empowered to make accurate business decisions in a self-service mode, and accounts payable roles can utilize the Web AR solution to apply credits and pay open invoices online.
“We chose b2b2dot0 as our integration partner because they have a proven, cloud-based solution that met 80% of our needs out of the box,” said Dustin Holmstrom VP, eCommerce & IT for tng worldwide.
tng’s new business-to-business eCommerce site, which launched in January, 2013 was built using a combination of b2b2dot0’s configurable web platform and Magento eCommerce.
The new site features:
- Real-time SAP data-integration
- Private, B2B product catalogs with customized messages and fields
- Complex B2B order management rules
- Centralized, easy-to-use content management tools
- Powerful and flexible marketing tools
Prior to partnering with b2b2dot0, tng had multiple websites that were completely disconnected from SAP. “We had no live inventory feed, no live pricing, and PCI compliance issues,” Holmstrom said.
“For us, this is a win-win-win. A year ago, we had three full-time salaries dedicated to manual data entry. Now, we’re much more efficient, our customers are happier, and we have a beautiful, responsive, interface design. That means we have one codebase to maintain that works seamlessly on desktops, tablets, iPhones and Androids. And it’s all integrated with SAP – two-ways, real-time.”
