DES PLAINES, Ill., Nov. 2, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- As B2B ecommerce continues to grow a significant number of manufacturers, distributors, and wholesalers are still using printed catalogs, phone, and fax for taking orders. 58% of B2B companies surveyed by Apruve do not have any form of ecommerce. Of the companies that do have ecommerce, many of the solutions are inadequate for customers' needs. Many ecommerce efforts are low cost solutions which could lead these companies to go the way of Sears instead of the way of Amazon.
For B2B companies that have embraced ecommerce, Apruve, a leading B2B Credit Network, publishes annual reports that rate how well they're doing. It's called the Apruval Rating Report. Americaneagle.com is proud to announce that customer State Electric Supply, Inc. was recently put in the top five for B2B electrical distributors.
