“We were already active in retail and adopted the online channel for sales, service, and marketing. In 2002, we changed to an omnichannel business approach and expanded our B2C model by adopting B2B. In 2005, we started separate B2B and B2C webshops to facilitate our customers in the best possible way.”

— Rein Suijker

The company started its B2C store on CS-Cart. They checked Magento, WooCommerce, Prestashop, Shopify, and several other off-the-shelf platforms. The important features for them were: 1. Central stock keeping for B2C and B2B business, 2. Bulk discount capabilities, 3. Single back-end system with capabilities for multiple storefronts. CS-Cart b2b ecommerce platform met almost all the requirements. When the time for B2B came, the platform choice was obvious.

“Since the beginning, we were using the CS-Cart ecommerce platform for our B2C business and to keep the ease of operation, limited education needs for employees, and one central stock keeping, we continued using the CS-Cart platform for both our B2C business and B2B business.”
