With COVID-19, there came a workforce crisis and the subsequent lack of people changed priorities and alternatives of work. In the classic distribution model, sales associates are responsible for taking orders. A workforce crisis could, therefore, have a significant impact on any business.
They were looking to digitalize their B2B business model with a platform that was able to adapt itself according to specific market needs in the hotel and restaurant industries.
“We opted for VTEX because it is a flexible SaaS. We have the advantages of an international platform, which evolves according to the demands of dozens of customers from the entire world and keeps up with the developments in the field. At the same time, we have the flexibility of an implementation customized based on the specifics of our activity.”– Albert Davidoglu, CEO at Macromex.
The biggest advantage of using VTEX B2B capabilities and architecture is the integration with the ERP system of the company, which will ensure long-term significant benefits through the automation and mitigation of errors in the order-taking processes.
“One of the greatest benefits of digitalization is the automation of repetitive processes and the possibility for the people on the team to deal with value-added things. We are still in the stage of continuous veriﬁcation of the integration with the ERP that is the basis of our business, and we look forward to fully enjoying the benefits of an error-free integration.”– Albert Davidoglu, CEO at Macromex.
The company made its debut in the B2B ecommerce market with the bocado.ro platform, dedicated to HoReCa specialists. Then, migrated to retail with a platform dedicated to grocery store owners, mercadi.ro. This process offered the following benefits for Macromex:
Another key functionality, which is absolutely necessary for the hospitality industry, is the granularity of setting prices. Through the multi-price list option, Macromex can set different prices for each customer, each having a different mix of products. This is done through the Pricing module at the VTEX Admin and it’s up to personalization for each seller and customer.
By implementing the B2B architecture, Macromex made the most out of VTEX’s composability and reached better operational results that not only improved the customer experience, but also improved the company’s back-end performance.
