B2B eCommerce: Key Findings with Jonathan Wright at Internet Retailing
As the whole world is seemingly going online, what will this mean for B2B manufacturers, suppliers, retailers and consumers?
The rise of Omnichannel and multichannel are often terms associated with the retail sector, but as B2B businesses are beginning to explore the possibilities of digitally enabled business, what will Omnichannel B2B look like?

On the flip side, retailers have started to target the B2B sector through initiatives such as B&Q TradePoint and AmazonSupply.
In this video, Jonathan Wright, Research Editor from Internet Retailing reveals the key findings from their Internet Retailing’s B2B Research Survey (co-sponsored by Maginus).
