Product or service description

OroCommerce is the first and only open-source eCommerce platform built from the ground up for mid-market and large B2B commerce businesses, namely manufacturers, distributors, and wholesalers. This integrated technology solution provides a diverse range of B2B features and capabilities, such as personalization, localization, built-in multi-channel CRM, powerful workflows, and a pricing engine. The groundbreaking flexibility coupled with a robust set of B2B features available out of the box, ensures the OroCommerce B2B platform is specifically designed for manufacturers, distributors, wholesalers, and multi-channel brands. OroCommerce was recognized as a strong player in the eCommerce vendors' market by all major analyst firms including IDC, Gartner, and Frost & Sullivan.

Distinction from the competition
  • As a purpose-built eCommerce platform for B2B, OroCommerce offers out-of-the-box B2B features such as managing corporate accounts, displaying unique price books, showcasing buyer-specific catalogs, supporting Configure-Price-Quote (CPQ) processes and multiple purchasing roles, creating custom workflows, and many more B2B capabilities.
  • The initial focus on B2B also makes OroCommerce a much leaner B2B commerce software compared to typical eCommerce platforms. This translates into a lower total cost of ownership for B2B companies. Because B2B eCommerce functionality is offered out-of-the-box, the solution is very agile and can boast the quickest time-to-market times in the B2B space. As a B2B company, you get a B2B-specific solution that lowers your total cost of ownership and offers a faster return on investment.
  • With its multi-website and multi-organization capabilities, OroCommerce can address all B2B, B2C, and B2X (B2B2B, B2B2C, etc.) scenarios and business needs in a single platform, compared to other B2B eCommerce platforms.
  • A native CRM solution, OroCRM, comes out of the box and is fully integrated
  • OroCommerce is an open-source solution, and thus is flexible and can be easily customized to fit various use cases to cater to the unique needs of B2B customers
  • Oro solutions can be deployed on the OroCloud, any Private or Public cloud, or on On-premises
