The CXcommerce modular application suite offers you and your major customers the benefits of eProcurement functionality, for a fraction of the investment required for traditional systems. This enables you to offer a value-added service to your major clients, which once set-up, forms a strong tie between you and your customers internal processes and systems such as cost centres and authorisation procedures, reinforcing an ongoing working relationship.
What do we offer?
eProcurement has traditionally been the preserve of a handful of visionary corporations and involved spending many millions of pounds on dedicated systems, but rarely did these users see a return on their investment. All FTSE 100 and Fortune 500 companies now buy online and this trend is moving downwards to smaller corporate companies and larger SMEs. Companies that cannot supply online within will find it increasingly difficult to retain their current business and also to win new accounts of any note.
Most major companies strive to improve the efficiency of their procurement processes, if not on their entire procurement spend, at least on their horizontal category procurement (MRO, stationery, business equipment and IT).
Traditionally resellers launched Internet webstores offering a single product range and pricing structure to both their customers and prospects. This lack of differentiation has resulted in many established customers using these webstores to browse for products and then pick up the telephone to enquire about better pricing, thereby defeating the object of the webstore as a channel to market.
Today, there is a marked shift by resellers to offer their corporate and medium sized clients a more dedicated solution that mirrors their internal operating and management procedures such as cost centres, authorisation processes, and dedicated products and pricing.
