Delayed responses and poor communication between brand owners, partners and end-customers
In B2B sales, brand owners face complex omnichannel processes involving retailers, distributors, resellers, and even direct sales. The ordering and fulfillment systems partners use often differ from each other and from the brand owner’s systems. Customers often cannot easily access order status or receive alerts regarding delays. Frequent purchase order changes compound the visibility problem and make it difficult for brand owners and logistics partners to respond. As a result, customer service goes down while overall costs increase.
