Wholesale is thriving in the apparel, footwear, and accessories industries. Brands need a strong B2B e-commerce platform to connect with their retailers, maximize sales, increase engagement, and grow their wholesale channels.
While there are many B2B platforms that can facilitate a transaction between a brand and a retailer, only Envoy B2B’s retailer-centric showrooms and human first tools provide the space a brand needs to successfully engage with retailers.
The Envoy B2B experience enables brands to guide retailers to everything from the latest catalogs and hot products, to collaborative merchandising and other opportunities to drive the season forward. It’s an opportunity for a DTC experience, right in the B2B environment.
This experience has proven successful for our customers, and we’ve seen some excellent applications of the platform from the brands we work with. And the data available to brands proves that Envoy B2B is helping them deliver a premium experience. Rising sales figures and retailer engagement backs up that data with real-world proof of their validity.
