Why Read This Report

Business-to-business (B2B) companies know they can generate revenue and save money by migrating their offline customers online. The question is, how much and under what circumstances? Forrester surveyed 45 B2B eCommerce executives to learn more about how they quantify the revenue opportunities and cost savings associated with moving traditionally offline customers into an online product purchase environment. This B2B eCommerce playbook report details how and where leading B2B eCommerce operations are generating revenue, reducing costs, and leveraging new customer engagement opportunities by "channel-shifting" their current offline clients online. This is an update of a previously published report; Forrester reviews and updates it periodically for continued relevance and accuracy.
