Digital marketplaces connect people and companies and allow them to negotiate, buy and trade online. They’ve fast become a reality, causing major shifts in the business models of many companies.
There are both B2B and B2C marketplaces. In B2B, they enable manufacturers, suppliers and distributors to trade with companies that want to purchase raw materials, finished products or services. B2C marketplaces such as BOL.com, Amazon or Flipkart act as digital business channels for sales and are becoming ever more important.
To become relevant on these marketplaces, a company requires a solid integration to avoid any manual work and to comply to the standards these marketplaces are setting.
A fully integrated connection such as through Montova, enables an rich omnichannel sales strategy. It immediately gives you the chance to leverage the immense consumer base that large players such as Amazon or other marketplaces have.
Moreover, you don’t have to rekey your products or orders for the marketplace systems. The integration takes care of everything, including the real-time handling that is expected in the world of e-commerce and marketplaces.
"We were up and running – and more importantly selling - on the BOL.com marketplace in a matter of weeks."
Ideally, your access to marketplaces should be up and running quickly and securely.
However, without a dedicated partner such as Montova, such integrations often prove to be more challenging and time consuming than expected. Particularly when companies want their backend systems in sync, and when they need full end-to-end transparency for the order processes, shipment communication, up-to-date inventory information and invoices.
Montova also takes care of the API integration. There’s no need to expose your own company API. We take care of the integration and the correct level of security.
Choose the B2B or B2C marketplace of your choice and we seamlessly integrate your back-end, instantly opening up your sales potential and channels.
