2013 June - B2B Means Business


It’s a challenging world today: responding to ever-increasing demands from customers; figuring out when it makes sense to implement new technologies; working with more distant suppliers; even keeping up with ever-changing acronyms – all while trying to grow your business. 

Of course, it’s an exciting time too:  we have a vast variety of technology resources to meet these challenges.B2B, “business-to-business” commerce, calls on business owners to be quick, to be innovative, to forge new collaborations with customers and suppliers – all while managing costs and resources.  It’s hard to know whether and when to upgrade ERP systems; it’s hard to know what to run on premises or in the cloud; it’s hard to know what to operate internally and what to outsource to experts;  it’s hard to worry about data integrity as well as data security; it’s hard to know when you need a different, better EDI/B2B solution.  You are not alone:  these are complex issues, and can be costly and time-consuming – when all you really want is business-to-business efficiency and on-going success.
