If you’re a thriving manufacturer, you know how challenging it can be to sift through the flood of purchase orders coming into your office. Without an efficient process for dealing with the onslaught of requests, all the resulting data entry, error resolution and customer frustration is likely costing your business a lot of time and money, eating further into your profit margins.
You probably discovered by now that most B2B ecommerce softwares you’ve researched, and perhaps are using already, typically tend to just scratch the surface in terms of the deep functionality and integrations that you need to truly automate, save and scale. There must be a better way!
Enter Cloudfy: the best-in-class B2B ecommerce solution with the premier slate of wholesale-oriented features you can switch on as your manufacturing business grows – all bundled together in an easy, fast, scalable one-stop-shop SaaS platform. Your Cloudfy webstore helps automate your P.O. intake so that your team can spend less time on data entry and more time on more important tasks like production and sales growth. Cloudfy’s wholesale functionality is extremely deep – robust enough for global enterprises, inexpensive enough for mid-market manufacturers.
Top Ecommerce Tools for Manufacturers
Unlike other softwares that require you to purchase lots of additional plugins, or undergo custom programming to piece together a patchwork B2B ordering portal, your Cloudfy site comes out-of-the-box with the industry-best selection of tools designed specifically for the purpose of helping manufacturers like you automate, save and scale; features including but not limited to:
If certain clients of yours only buy some of your product lines but not others, your Cloudfy sites will give you the ability to define customer groups and control what information is shared with what clients. Whether it’s products, promotions, prices or content, your Cloudfy site can help you specifically target and share the right information with the right constituents.
Unlike other b2b ecommerce solutions, your Cloudfy comes pre-built with integration to multiple ERP systems. You can avoid paying separate license, hosting and setup fees for a 3rd party connector. Your client ordering portal will be populated with data pulled directly from your ERP software (customer records, catalogs, pricing, etc…) and send any web orders back to your ERP for processing.
Cloudfy’s Configure Price Quote (CPQ) solution gives you the ability to add a robust product builder tool right inside your customers’ ordering portal so they can easily obtain real-time automated quotes for your selection of complex, configurable merchandise. You can design this feature according to preset rules that generate error-free pricing. This streamlined approach to an otherwise complicated quote process will free up your sales team so they can then spend less time filling out paperwork and more time building relationships, closing sales and increasing your revenues.
Trade across multiple regions, under separate brands or in different business models such as D2C with Cloudfy’s Multi-Store setup. You could have separate stores for different countries, a retail store, a separate brand B2B store – all under the same Cloudfy instance. Stores can remain on the same URL, or on separate URLs depending on the configuration you prefer.
Your Cloudfy site gives you the option of tackling your BOM explosions either inside your ERP or doing it through the product setup interface in your web portal so that either way you can decide where, when and how you want to decrement your inventory of component parts. More about BOM ordering
