B2B Buyer profiles are evolving. The difference between your organization and a competitor may come down to the availability of product ordering via a digital commerce platform, and traditional ordering channels. According to a B2BecNews survey, in 5 years half of the workforce will be Millennials. 90% of B2B buyers research online before making a purchase. 84% prefer repeated orders through online channels. The ongoing global pandemic has no doubt accelerated many of these statistics. For B2B organizations, this signifies a fundamental shift in how your customers want to do business. The options are limited: innovate to thrive online or ignore the shift and rely only on “tested and true” methods. Participate to discover a Data-Driven approach to how JD Edwards B2B organizations can innovate and solidify and expand their industry positions into the uncertain future.
