Every industry has its own special requirements, which change their B2B ecommerce priorities.

For construction businesses, the delays and costs of mistakes made when manually entering orders is one of the biggest concerns. Streamlining administration throughout the business can improve profitability and efficiency.

Buyers can have wide-ranging product needs, depending on their current projects. Having a complete view of your buyers’ purchasing history can be a challenge. Holding all their purchasing history in one place is an important starting point.

One of the biggest barriers can be legacy IT systems. These might work well in their own right but are difficult to integrate into a single seamless system. Creating a single, reliable view of your product range and buyer needs can seem like a big problem.

However, the construction industry increasingly expects to make purchases online. To be ready for this challenge, a strategic approach to business systems and online self-service need to be business priorities.

Modernization

Building information modelling (BIM) solutions now allow for information-rich 3D plans that can be integrated with project management tools. And machine to machine interfaces that can automate the ordering and timing for delivery of construction materials is not far off. For construction businesses that want to be ready for these developments, business systems integration are a must. Embracing this new way of working will help to boost existing product sales and predict demand for new products too. Cloudfy's modern solutions can help you get ahead of the curve.

Product Information Management

While a typical home do-it-yourself store might hold a few thousand products, an online construction product catalog could easily comprise hundreds of thousands. With this volume of products, intelligent online search options can improve buyers’ shopping experience. Improving the efficiency of managing this volume and variety of products will deliver important benefits. Cloudfy can help you provide a single, accurate view of product descriptions, stock levels and pricing.

Business System Integration

Your construction business could grow, simply by offering round-the-clock ordering and easy search options to boost your online conversions. With easy repeat order options you will also improve you buyers’ experience. Automation can eliminate the risks and costs of manual order entry. Direct integration with your other business systems will improve your overall efficiency and profitability. Cloudfy includes integration with all the major ERPs and has flat file and API options as well.
