How 2 Companies Are Scaling B2B Selling with Digital Commerce

eCommerce has become business-critical for B2B organizations.

Forrester predicts digital B2B sales will reach $1.8 trillion and account for 17% of all B2B sales in the US by 2023

It’s clear B2B eCommerce offers a huge opportunity, but it also comes with plenty of complexity and challenges. Every company has its own set of unique growing pains and requirements, but by working with a partner that is able to meet those specific needs and having the right eCommerce technology you will achieve success in scaling B2B selling through digital commerce. 

We are sharing how two very different companies partnered with Echidna to successfully scale their B2B selling capabilities through digital commerce.

Doubling Product Revenue

Founded in 1948, Construction Specialties is a specialty building product manufacturer. Providing solutions to challenges that architects, designers, building owners, facility managers, and contractors face every day, their products can be found on or in some of the most iconic buildings around the world.

Throughout the years, Construction Specialties has always prided itself on focusing on continual improvement in serving their customers. As a leading manufacturer in the building products industry and where many haven’t leaped into digital commerce, Construction Specialties saw the potential that improving their digital presence and consolidating technologies would offer customers. They realized an important component of this would be the addition of an eCommerce site.

eCommerce Turns Essential

Since 1956, Jessup Manufacturing has been offering a diverse set of products and grown to serve a range of disparate markets. Introducing eCommerce in 2009, they slowly grew their base of online buyers of both small retailers and consumers within the United States. Flash forward and now all of their safety, graphics, and signage products are sold online to businesses of sizes.

Jessup Manufacturing realized several years ago their current eCommerce solution wasn't offering them the scalability they required. To ensure they were meeting customers' expectations for accessibility and ease of use for years to come they chose to invest in an updated eCommerce with improved online selling capabilities. Their new site has allowed them to seize unexpected opportunities, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic with their social distancing signage.
