As the possible easing of some of the UK’s COVID-19 lockdown restrictions appears on the horizon, businesses need to think about ramping up operations in preparation for recovery. With the lifting of restrictions, there will almost certainly be a rapid rebound in demand, but b2b sellers will have to face a multitude of challenges and threats before they start to see market conditions begin to stabilise.

Emerging from the crisis, supply chains across many sectors will probably remain severely disrupted with low goods inventories impacting on price and delivery time. Companies are likely to face difficulties in securing credit – all businesses will be trying to hold on to their cash, and keeping capital expenditure to a minimum. In addition, many will be struggling to resource their operations effectively having previously furloughed staff or made redundancies.

At the same time, all businesses will want the agility to gear up quickly so they can start driving sales in the most cost efficient way possible. Interestingly, during the COVID-19 crisis, we’ve seen how many online businesses have thrived. These companies have been able to rely on the automated sales processes of an ecommerce platform to deliver 24/7 service, whether staff and customers are working from their offices or from home.

For b2b companies that have not had the benefit of an integrated ecommerce system during the lockdown and want a quick, easy and smart way to start selling online, Aspidistra is offering a fast-track solution that can be up and running in two weeks and requires no capital expenditure. Delivered securely as a SaaS (Software-as-a-Service) from the Cloud, our trade portal integrates with Sage and Pegasus accounting systems to provide your customers with a slick personalised ordering process. You simply pay an affordable monthly fee for hosting, maintenance and on-going support on a 24-month contract.

Aspidistra’s fast-track ecommerce website solution is accessed from a branded login page where customers enter the portal using their unique username and password. While the solution is fully featured and offers all the functionality of our award-winning system, site design and any bespoke features can be added at a later date when your budget and resources allow. To get your b2b business trading online in just two weeks with a best-of-breed ecommerce solution, get in touch now.
