    Episode 5: B2B eCommerce - A Discussion with OroCommerce

    Episode 5: B2B eCommerce - A Discussion with OroCommerce

    If you're selling to businesses and government agencies online, you'll often be asked to do things "their way".  As your business expands - with hundreds or thousands of customers expecting to do business on their terms - your staff and eCommerce infrastructure may struggle with the scale and complexity required to provide this level of flexibility.

    B2B eCommerce platforms allow you to gracefully accommodate your clients' needs, preferences, and purchasing policies.  While also serving the unique needs of your business and employees.

    In this episode, Alpine's Stan Duda and Earl Stevens are joined by OroCommerce CEO Yoav Kutner.  We discuss the challenges B2B retailers face, innovations to mitigate the challenges, and the benefits offered in today's modern B2B eCommerce platforms.

    Episode 4: Deliver a Superior Product Experience with Akeneo

    If you sell products and services through multiple channels - or in different geographies - you likely spend a lot of time managing and worrying about your product data:

    Do you provide the level of detail your customers need?
    Is your product data consistent across channels and geographies?
    Is the data accurate and up to date?
    Does your data help you make emotional connections between your customers, your products, and your brand?

    In this episode, we chat with Akeneo's Virginie Blot.  As a Product Experience Evangelist,  Virginie has helped hundreds of clients manage their product data - and use it effectively to build and strengthen relationships!

    So take a deep breath, step away from the spreadsheets, and let's talk about delivering a superior product experience!
