B2B eCommerce for the Manufacturing Industry

Maximise sales with the TrueCommerce B2B eCommerce Platform


B2B eCommerce for manufacturers across all sectors

The TrueCommerce B2B platform is used by leading manufacturers with turnovers ranging from £5m to £5bn, across many sectors including apparel, food, electronics and industrial to drive increased sales, greater profitability and improved customer service.

Fulfil the needs of today’s B2B buyers with quick and easy online ordering

B2B eCommerce is all about speed and efficiency, with statistics showing that more customers will buy online if it saves them time. Many B2B customers place repeat orders with very similar products and quantities so providing tools to speed up this process inevitably results in increased sales.

The TrueCommerce platform provides customers several time saving features such as the ability to enter product codes or upload a CSV list of products with stock levels, pricing and even suggested alternatives all being produced instantaneously. The platform also provides order pads which can produce order suggestions based on previous transactions or automatically create customer specific order lists direct from the ERP.

Don’t just sell online, do business online with self-service

The most substantial efficiencies are often delivered through a self-service model whereby customers can access and conduct all their post sales activities through their account online. Managing account finances, returns, back orders, obtaining copy invoices and live statements are all tasks that can easily be automated online through the TrueCommerce B2B eCommerce platform.

The platform also allows your customers to instantly view and pay invoices online by credit card which reduces their account balance allowing them to place new orders without the involvement of your finance or sales team. This is particularly useful for companies who operate outside of your standard office hours.

Increase customer loyalty with branded sites for key customers or buying groups

A specifically branded site for a key customer or group of customers can quickly increase customer loyalty and spend. With the TrueCommerce white label multi site feature you can quickly create new sites, brand and style them as required and enable/disable features and functionality to best fit your customers’ requirements. All of this can be done with ease in minutes.

Quickly and easily enter new markets with multi-lingual functionality

Selling online removes many of the traditional barriers associated with expanding your manufacturing business into new markets. The TrueCommerce Netalogue B2B eCommerce software solution allows you to quickly add stores for additional businesses you may acquire as well as providing full multilingual support for growing your business in foreign territories.

Automatically present products in the right language with the appropriate regional tax corrections.

Improve the quotation process for you and your customers

For manufacturers selling products which involve many variables it is not always possible to publish prices for all products and instead the sales process involves providing individual quotes to customers. However, this doesn’t mean that B2B eCommerce is unsuitable. In fact, if your customers frequently request quotations, having the ability for them to do so quickly and easily online provides an improved customer experience, whilst freeing up your sales team to focus on more valuable tasks.

With full control over which customers can request a quote, as well as setting parameters based on quantity or value, the TrueCommerce platform allows your customers to manage quotes with a simple one click conversion to sales order.

Integrate your manufacturing B2B storefront with your back office system for increased efficiency and visibility

Connect your B2B eCommerce storefront to your accounting, WMS or order processing systems to improve efficiencies and remove the need for rekeying, whilst increasing visibility across your business. The TrueCommerce B2B eCommerce solution has comprehensive integration capabilities with a powerful framework which allows for rapid integration with business systems including SAP, Sage, Microsoft & Oracle.
