Modern business-to-business (B2B) buyers have unprecedented access to information to support their buying process and, as a result, have become more self-reliant in the evaluation process. This has made B2B sellers’ jobs harder; not only do they have less control in earlier stages of the sales cycle, but they have to work harder to connect and engage with buyers, turning prospects into customers. Sales technologies have helped modernize how sellers and sales leaders manage their pipelines and execute contracts, but technology gaps around engagement persist, making it difficult for sellers to keep pace with, connect with, and support buyer engagement. The common outcome: Sellers become slaves to their CRM systems, focused more on updating reports and logging their activities than they are in driving business results.

We have entered the age of the customer where they have more choices, higher expectations, and more influence. Historically, the B2B selling process has been very fragmented with the use of highly customized and siloed applications, leading to broken channels of communication. CEB, a leading member-based advisory company, published “The Challenger Sale” in 2011 showing that that 57 percent of B2B buying steps are completed before a buyer even connects with a salesperson. With an abundance of information available on the Web and via social networks, B2B buyers today can leverage multiple sources to find out more about your products or services.

In today's B2B market, where the customer has access to volumes of infor¬mation surrounding their purchase decision, there's been a major shift in the selling paradigm-a shift that all but eliminates "selling" from the process. Now Sales and Marketing professionals must insert themselves into the custom¬er's purchasing process at a much earlier stage, helping the customer buy, through an intelligent, dynamic nurturing cycle.

While traditional B2B sales channels are still the most influential, the explosive growth of B2B ecommerce is forcing B2B organizations to dedicate resources and budget to the on-line sales channel. While B2B organizations can learn from B2C in terms of user experience, B2B selling is much more complex and requires a centralized commerce platform that fully supports sophisticated workflows, pricing, product configurations, approvals and more. In this paper, we explore the impact of the on-line channel and examine five key components required to achieve B2B commerce effectiveness.

Customer relationship management (CRM) deployments are most effective when they legitimately support all three words that make up the acronym itself. Customers of the modern business-to-business (B2B) enterprise benefit when they purchase goods and services from companies who are focused on the buyer’s experience. Internal relationships within the selling organization are more effectively maintained when all customer-facing stakeholders have access to the rich data contained in a well-maintained CRM. And the management of the enterprise providing solutions can run their business like a finely-tuned machine when the maximum levels of visibility into customers and accounts are clear and accurate. This Research Brief combines research from a number of Aberdeen Sales Effectiveness research data sets, to create a holistic view of the most effectively deployed CRM systems.
