Why Do You Need a B2B e-Commerce Solution?

Posted by Ashley Lemus on Thu, Mar 23, 2017 @ 01:46 PM

If you're using Sage 100 ERP then you'll notice that e-Commerce is gaining ground among the community of distributors and manufacturers. 

CertiPro B2BEcommerce.png

 

CertiPro Solutions, a B2B e-Commerce integration solution, recently conducted a survey of Sage 100 ERP users among global manufacturers and distributors in more than a dozen industries, in which 21% stated more than a quarter of their revenue comes from online resources. Naturally this has caused an increase of users implementing B2B websites and technology.

 

That's because an effective B2B e-Commerce integration enables online B2B cusotmer ordering, cite mobile order-writing software fo rsales regs in the field, and give customers the ability to place orders from a mobile device.

 

Although, this sort of technology is nowhere near new, roughly 40% of the survey respondents admitted to not having a B2B e-Commerce integration solution in place. And as the number of manufacturers and distributors who adopt this new way of online ordering increases it should be no surprise that it will become increasingly more difficult to compete without it in the coming years.

 

That's not to say that the significance of B2B e-commerce isn’t lost on those who don’t offer it: 40% of responding companies without B2B e-commerce solutions report they plan an implementation within one year, and 20% intend to do so within six months. If you’re in these 2 percentiles, you may want to look into E-Link or CertiPro’s Magento Integration Solution for Sage 100 ERP.

Klear Systems can benefit your organization.

Intelligent CRM: Improving Customer Relationships with AI

Posted by Ashley Lemus on Tue, Mar 21, 2017 @ 12:43 PM

By focusing on achieving a higher conversion rate, rather than getting more leads, an intelligent CRM can increase your sales without inflating your marketing budget.

  Intelligent CRM results in improved customer relationships-1.png

 

This happens as the AI platform behind your CRM makes it easy to build true one-on-one relationships with your potential customers.


What Results Can You Expect?


Not only will you experience the results every B2C marketer desires, but with an intelligent CRM, the processes are done for you.

 

This means three things:

1. Less time and money to get the same results.
2. Improvement of your conversion rate on current leads.
3. You can justify scaling your lead-generation efforts.

 

Normally, it would take an agency by your side to make this magic happen. Now, even small business owners have enough insights to make educated judgments.


How AI-Powered CRMs Boost Conversions

Gone are the days where marketers would try to read, sort and analyze their data in more effective ways. Today, intelligent CRM software options cut the guess work out by using AI superpowers to choose the most appropriate models. Now marketers are able to identify where leads drop off, as well as how each sales channel should by engaged. As a result, all your B2C marketing efforts can now go toward high-value conversion optimizations.

 


Responses and Response Timing

Response timing is everything when attempting to satisfy and sustain a customer base.

Sure you'd love to offer customers 24/7 support, but wouldn't it be even better for your models to execute in real-time? 


Imagine sending an automated, "Thank you!" email once a shipment arrives at a customer's house. What about upselling an accessory or reminding your customer of an abandoned shopping cart?

 


Personalized Recommendations to Sell Better


You pay for ads for your e-commerce store but what if you could give personalized recommendations based on individual user behavior?


This is the truest sense of one-on-one B2C marketing. It's what every professional sets out to achieve. With an AI customer relationship management system you can automate this processes, ultimately saving your SMB time and money.


Think about when you're on Facebook. The ads you see are often products you recently looked at. It's annoying when your kids catch hints of their Christmas gifts, but it can be a game-changer at the end of a B2C cycle.

 


Bring Big Changes, Without the Risks


Discover the differences caused by your marketing strategy changes so your organization can make adjustments accordingly. 


Small tweaks here and there should allow you to increase conversion rate will increases, hopefully resulting in more sales for your business. However, without an AI-powered CRM helping you, it's more of a guessing game as to how each set of leads will perform.

 

As an intelligent CRM software works dynamically with the rest of your ERP system the result is a more custom one-on-one B2C marketing model. Experience less drop off, a stronger conversation rate and a higher advertising ROI.

5 Signs It's Time To Migrate From Spreadsheets

Posted by Ashley Lemus on Mon, Oct 31, 2016 @ 03:13 PM

If you're still using spreadsheets to manage your fixed assets chances are you've probably experienced a few hiccups.

 
 
5 signs it’s time to dump your spreadsheets



Any sort of issues involving your asset management process can seriously interrupt your work day.  That's why we're providing five common signals it’s time to make a switch from using spreadsheets to manage your inventory control:

 

1. Using spreadsheets to manage your fixed assets is a huge security risk
Using a software rather than spreadsheets is a much safer route for protecting your assets.  Imagine if someone were to hack into your system.  Would your data be protected?


2. Trouble inputting data across the organization
Can we all agree that communication is key when operating a successful business? Spreadsheets limit the ability to communicate to everyone involved in your business. Have you ever viewed an Excel file and got the dreaded notification “[blank] is currently working in your file, would you like to view this document as a read only file”? When deadlines are tight and you are lacking patience, your business needs a program that allows everyone to view the management system at once from multiple locations. 


3. You consistently discover errors in your data

Entering formulas into spreadsheets often comes with a margin of error since the data is being manually enter into the document. Not catching those errors can cost your company money. 


4. You feel like you have multiple job titles 
Does the manual entry process have you stressed out and feeling like you’re doing multiple people's jobs? Being able to digitally enter inventory with a barcode scanner would save you a long headache and a lot of time. 


5. Rushing to prepare for tax time
Have you ever heard of the expression ‘save time, save money’? A dedicated system can help you do just that by automating your process rather than manually entering data into a spreadsheet. No need to rush at the end of the year to prepare for your audit thanks to the data being up to speed and compliant.
 
 
 
 
Allowing you to effectively control your asset management and inventory management process isn't the only thing an ERP system could do for your small to medium-sized business!  Check out this helpful whitepaper to see even more benefits to jumping ship on the spreadsheets.
