Elastic Brings Digital Merchandising to New Industries

Brands, manufacturers, and distributors are creating more strategic relationships and streamlined selling processes with their retail partners through the Elastic B2B solution. Distributors play an important role in the adoption of next-generation digital merchandising technology through their multiple supplier relationships across a broad network of retailers. 

The trend toward universal adoption of Elastic is transforming wholesale eCommerce and the distributor model by eliminating the requirement for retailers to access their supplier brands through multiple purchasing solutions.
