Between hosting Magento Imagine 2017 and making a BIG announcement for B2B businesses, April was a busy but exciting month for Magento!
In case you missed the announcement, Magento revealed that it will now support B2B capabilities through the launch of its Magento Digital Commerce Cloud for B2B offering.
According to Magento’s official statement, “Digital Commerce Cloud empowers B2B merchants to quickly create B2C-like commerce experiences that strengthen customer loyalty, drive revenue growth, reduce costs, and optimize the supply chain.”
So what does this mean for B2B businesses like yours?
It means a few things.
First, merchants can now fully support corporate buyers with commerce account management, customized catalogs and price lists, and tools for rapid ordering. It also means corporate buyers can make online requests for quote workflow, and increased visibility across retail outlets.
Here’s a complete breakdown of the features included with Digital Commerce Cloud:
Corporate Account Management
Custom Catalogs and Pricing
Real-Time Inventory Intelligence
Intelligent Routing and Order Delivery
Need help integrating your B2B Magento store with your accounting/ERP system?

With eBridge, your solution is fully built, maintained, and managed by us, in-house, with 24/7 support so that you never need to worry. You can rest easy knowing that your orders are always in good hands!
