White Paper: How B2B Distributors Take On Amazon Business

NEW YORK, NY – Applico, the advisory firm for Platform Innovation®, is publishing a white paper covering the strategies established B2B distributors can deploy to fend off Amazon Business on Thursday, March 23, 2017.

The white paper “The Best Defense Is Offense: How B2B Distributors Can Dominate With a Marketplace” will explore the notions:

  • How B2B distribution will be dominated by a marketplace, either Amazon or one created by the established industry players
  • Established distributors have four routes for playing offense with a marketplace approach
  • What exactly an established distributor needs to do to accomplish this transformation

Applico sees an urgent necessity for B2B distributors to embrace the marketplace model, lest they be relegated to fulfilling orders for a competitor and losing margins in the process.

Interested parties can sign up to receive the white paper, “The Best Defense Is Offense: How B2B Distributors Can Dominate With a Marketplace,” at this link:
