New Madison Ave’s b2b e-commerce practice specializes in the unique challenges of b2b e-commerce. Where both b2b and b2c share the same high end user expectations of engaging content, ease of use, fast and secure transactions and self service capabilities, b2b offers additional challenges due to its tight integration with existing business processes such as credit and collections as well as shipping and returns management to name a few. Additionally, is has to be tied into the enterprise cyber-security architecture and meet all the network and data security requirements.
Clearly b2b e-commerce presents different challenges than b2c and needs a different type of partner to be successful. New Madison Ave’s expertise in the entire order-to-cash process, from e-commerce to ERP to supply chain, can design and implement a seamless b2b customer experience while meeting the needs of existing company policies, procedures and technological capabilities.
