    • Notably 72% of respondents said that more than a quarter of their B2B sales were made online.
  • Customers are demanding B2B online solutions and sellers are responding.
    • For instance 59% of sellers have made ecommerce a priority this year.
  • A unified ecommerce solution brings improved customer satisfaction.
    • Correspondingly customer acquisition, upselling and cross-selling, profitability and satisfaction rates are all higher where unified solutions are used. (Compared with sellers using standalone, “best of breed” systems).
