Last year, I wrote about AssureX® and why we started this company to focus on commerce space. Within a short span of one year, we have come a long way in our journey.
Today, we are pleased to announce the launch of AssureX® B2B accelerator for Sitecore® Commerce.
AssureX B2B Commerce Accelerator
B2B Commerce Accelerator is a set of ready to use Commerce plugins, allows you to jumpstart your B2B Commerce implementation and reap the benefits of Sitecore Commerce in the B2B world. These plugins can be rapidly deployed on any Sitecore Commerce implementation (Series 9.x, including existing) and allow customers to cut down the time to market and simplify GTM strategy.
Adding B2B Commerce accelerator to Sitecore Commerce provides customers with a rich set of features and capabilities to manage everyday B2B scenarios, like account management, custom catalogs, and pricing, invoice management, etc. To the end-users, it gives an ability to configure the products and to users with the appropriate rights, self-manage the relationship of their organisation.
