London, UK, 30 September 2013 – Intershop will present its second annual e-commerce report at this year's eCommerce Expo, which takes place on 2-3 October at Olympia London. The report examines the challenges and complexities facing B2B online stores, based on a survey of 400 companies across Europe and the USA. Head of Sales UK & Ireland, Matt Ball will discuss the findings in the Ecommerce & Social Platforms Theatre on Wednesday 2 October from 13.45-14.15. The presentation is titled 'The 2013 e-commerce report: Delivering the B2C experience that your B2B customers expect'.
The Intershop report examines how the world of B2B commerce is undergoing a radical transformation, as smartphone usage, social media and the consumerisation of IT are driving up B2B customer expectations. It reveals that organisations struggle to provide intuitive and user-friendly interfaces for multiple touch points such as online stores and mobile apps, and find it difficult to manage complex organisational structures. Intershop's ecommerce experts will be available to discuss possible solutions on stand 518 in the exhibition area.
eCommerce Expo is the UK's number one event dedicated to all aspects of selling online. The exhibition brings together over 180 suppliers, with industry experts sharing their knowledge in more than 50 seminar sessions. For more information, visit http://www.ecommerceexpo.co.uk.
