Znode, an enterprise B2B ecommerce platform, has been awarded ten medals in Andy Hoar’s Paradigm B2B Combine (Midmarket Edition), including two gold medals, four silver medals, and four bronze medals.
The 2022 Paradigm B2B Combine evaluated ten leading B2B ecommerce solutions and is scored according to specific criteria in 12 different categories. Znode received medals in the following categories:
Gold - Content & Data Management
Content and data management functionality enable buyers to create, store, and search-enable content and data to drive commerce and sustain customer loyalty.
Gold - Sales & Channel Enablement
Znode empowers merchants to enable customer-facing sales reps, customer service reps, and channel partners to participate in the digital sales of goods and services.
Silver - Total Cost of Ownership
Once implemented, a platform can quickly go from affordable to unaffordable. Znode’s total cost of ownership remains sustainable and economical.
Silver - Vision & Strategy
Choosing a B2B ecommerce platform is a major investment, and success is tied to its vendor’s success. Providing transparency is about a short- and long-term roadmap vision, and plans to recruit partners and customers are pivotal.
Silver - Integrations, Operations & Infrastructure
How businesses deliver solutions, perform and scale, and incorporate key partner functionality and services continues to grow in importance.
Silver - Site Search
Znode's native ecommerce site search enables B2B buyers to use keywords, natural language search, and semantic search to find desired products and services.
Bronze - Promotions Management
Buyers today expect personalized experiences with promotions, subscriptions, and pricing. Znode delivers functionality that enables sellers to price products and services and promote them to targeted audiences.
Bronze - Ability to Execute
Innovative and savvy ecommerce platform vendors deliver on promises. The ability to execute sets companies like Znode apart.
Bronze - Customer Service & Support
Problems and issues often arise during implementations, and it’s up to vendors to maintain detailed processes and policies to ensure teams are highly available and qualified to fix any problems.
Bronze - Transaction Management
Buyers need to be able to add an item to a cart and check out to complete a purchase. They may also need to configure orders and ask for quotes.
"Znode is particularly well-suited for midmarket B2B companies looking for a value-priced, architecturally-headless .NET commerce platform capable of handling complex multi-store scenarios," says Andy Hoar. "Znode added two new Gold medals to the mix this year and raised their total to ten medals overall."
