Surviving the Amazon Effect

Amazon’s recent move to B2B procurement, with the launch of the Amazon Business platform, is having a profound impact on the distribution and manufacturing industries. Whether or not you compete directly with Amazon at present, its disruption of the B2B market is unavoidable. Amazon’s expertise in customer experience has already shaped the expectations of today’s B2C consumer, and it is this purchasing experience that is now expected by the B2B buyer.
