reduced the time it takes to process new quotes and close orders with our approach to the SAP Hybris solution
Our team completed the implementation of B2B ecommerce platform on an
aggressive timeline using the hybris B2B accelerator — a solution that allows
organizations to deploy and extend channel functionality when needed, as needed. For example, an organization can
start with an online store and later expand its multichannel commerce footprint by adding additional channels
from the SAP Hybris Multichannel Suite.
The rollout included robust
merchandising support and a range.

    entry process which was followed earlier
