1. No integration needed

Performing integrations is often a costly, time-consuming, and vulnerable process. You can avoid this by using just one solution for both your CRM and your order management. As well as saving time and money you would have all your customer information available in the same tool. This ensures that you and your team have more time for other business.

This is how you change your webshop from just a webshop to one easy-to-use self-service portal for your customers.

4. Fixes of known B2B e-commerce challenges

Market research shows us that after implementing a B2B webshop, companies struggle to maintain the same relationship with their clients. Without the CRM & order management connection, it’s harder for your sales team to stay on top of inactive clients. When a client becomes inactive or starts to order less than normal, your CRM will show it directly.
