3M Oral Care’s B2B Commerce Journey
Ten years ago, 3M Oral Care embarked on a journey to revolutionize its B2B commerce presence. What started as a platform with a mere 3% adoption rate has burgeoned into a dynamic ecosystem. To illustrate, today, some 60% of their customers actively engage with the website. This impressive transformation testifies to the power of strategic digital innovation and effective B2B eCommerce solutions.
The project kicked off with a commitment to elevate the customer experience. Pioneering features like the "buy on behalf" capability have redefined convenience. For instance, it empowers sales representatives to act on behalf of customers, curates personalized favorites lists, and streamlines the ordering process. It’s a user-centric approach that enhances efficiency and fosters a sense of trust and loyalty among users.
Central to 3M Oral Care's global expansion and uptick in customer adoption was the implementation of Mobiecom, a ReactJS storefront, and HCL Commerce. Remarkably, this move facilitated an impressive 45% rise in global commerce sales from 2021 to 2023. The success story of Shop Ortho—3M Oral Care’s eCommerce platform—reflects the scalability and adaptability of their solutions in meeting diverse customer needs worldwide.
