NextChapter for Wholesale businesses

Strengthen your B2B channel and break into B2C markets

Are you ready for the next step in Commerce?
As a wholesaler, your position in the value chain may change very rapidly. If you are currently a supplier, you may soon be a logistics service provider or sell directly to end users. All these different customers will demand an optimal environment and professional services. Lagging behind in the field of eCommerce is not an option. How can you strengthen your position?

The commerce platform for wholesalers in transition

NextChapter offers a platform that allows you to sell both to B2B and B2C markets from one central platform. Say goodbye to outdated software that makes managing large amounts of article data a bother. With our solution you create a very strong online B2B channel. And you can easily expand your strategy with new B2C sales channels or the integration with marketplaces. In fact, you can become a niche marketplace in your own industry. We predict Niche marketplaces will be the future of eCommerce. With the integration of your physical store locations, smart stock management, optimal services and a sophisticated distribution network, you can benefit from your central position in the market.

Strengthen your position and expand your sales channels

We understand the complex world in which you operate. The traditional supply chain still exists, but you must adopt a hybrid sales strategy to survive. By strengthening your B2B channel and developing new sales channels such as D2C, you can keep up with eCommerce on all fronts. Do you want to connect new sales channels? Or start working with varying points of sale or on-demand warehousing? NextChapter offers unlimited possibilities for your next course, while the technology scales with you.

For example, think of:

  • B2B webshops, specially developed for business sales
  • B2C webshops for a certain product category or specific brand, aimed at conversion
  • Niche marktplace, the next development of your webshop into a specialised marketplace
  • Sell through big marketplaces such as Amazon, Bol and Zalando, fully integrated with NextChapter

About PGZ

PGZ, traditionally a wholesaler in Do-It-Yourself and garden products, has great ambition to conquer the European market. By responding intelligently to market changes in the retail sector, they expanded their business model from a traditional wholesaler to a full-service service provider.

What PGZ was looking for

To deliver faster at a lower cost, they needed a rock-solid foundation. This enabled them to scale up and provide better services to their customers. PGZ International was looking for a trusted eCommerce partner to realise their growth ambitions, and have undoubtedly found it in NextChapter.

What PGZ found

In NextChapter they found a partner who created a powerful new eCommerce platform. One central platform that masters all systems, B2B portal, and B2C sales channels. On top of that, we integrated NextChapters’ advanced PIM system (GS1 standard) to import, manage and enrich large amounts of complex article data. With their new B2B webshop, their order amount has increased significantly. This enabled their sales representatives to focus on new business instead of order management.
