Connector B2B

B2B e-Commerce: improved collaboration with business partners


Connector B2B supports the management of sell-in to business partners. It is designed to allow the business partners to place orders following specific logistical criteria and to improve the cooperation between these parties.

Our B2B e-Commerce solution supports the process of sell-in to your business partners. The solution supports a wide ranging integration with your partners across areas such as sales orders, order statuses, delivery notes, complaints, invoices, etc. The key feature of Connector B2B is the processing of sales orders placed by the business partners from your supply chain. This includes orders placed via the web portal, integrated through EDI channels, or processed by traditional means like fax, PDF or xls files. Thanks to a dedicated logistics algorithm, the solution supports the logistics process optimisation from the moment your business partner begins placing an order, allowing for the optimum use of delivery resources and cutting down on the cost of shipping.  Another set of features makes Connector B2B a very effective communication channel between the manufacturer and its business partners, which helps improve mutual relationships and business growth. This approach gives the business partners access to all the key information relevant to their business activities. All in one place.

Order collection

Our B2B e-Commerce solution allows you to apply a set of business controls and optimisation algorithms to make sure that the orders placed by your business partners meet all necessary business and logistic criteria.

The web application makes it possible to validate placed orders, including factors like logistic minimum, expected delivery date, available quota of products. It displays all necessary product information, taking into account factors specific to each individual client, such as the pricing structure, rebates, individual units, specific promotions and discounts, order history and the status of orders placed. Order placement is also the stage when logistic optimisation begins. Products can be grouped by trucks which should be delivered from individual warehouses in the most cost efficient way.
