By implanting exceptional user experiences that go beyond standing up a digital storefront, you can push past the 40% of distributors currently conducting business online and establish yourself as a true digital innovator.
Deliver Site Search That Solves Distributors’ Biggest Challenges
In consumer goods, site search is a convenience — in B2B, it’s a critical element of problem solving for buyers. But distributors now need search to perform in ways that “out of the box” search tools just can’t handle, from processing complex part numbers to recognizing what type of “glove” a buyer’s actually looking for based on their industry.
