Bring your distribution partners together on a marketplace platform to improve the online buying experience for your customers.Let's talk
B2B buyers want to discover and buy from the same website
The status quo of customers being pushed to a dealer’s website is resulting in customer attrition, lost conversion data, and a lack of visibility into inventory level. It’s time for a change.
- Fragmented routes to market
Manufacturers need to drive alignment across all sales channels—from channel partners to field sales—and make it easy for buyers to find and buy their products online at the best offer available.
- Lack of visibility across the value chain
Industrial equipment manufacturers struggle to balance stock across production sites and distributor warehouses, resulting in excess in some and shortages in others.
- Incomplete view of the customer journey
Industrial equipment manufacturers lack clear, real-time visibility into sell-through data, inhibiting their ability to quickly respond to volatile changes.
It’s no longer good enough in B2B to be a really good supplier. You have to provide really good experiences along with that.

Through our marketplace, we were able to identify Toyota forklifts still operating that are 20-30 years old. Finding those new customers and setting relationships in gear is where we see a lot of the value.
Partnering with Mirakl enabled us to get this project off the ground and running quickly, to meet our customers’ growing expectations for 24/7/365 access to the products and solutions they need to keep their business moving forward.
