A major shift is underway; Magento 2.2 is here, and
with it comes significant new functionality including a
full suite of native B2B features, performance and
deployment enhancements, advanced reporting and more.
A shift from legacy systems and catalog-only sales to online
platforms, and the fact 1/3 of clients already use Magento for
B2B, are all driving forces behind Magento’s decision to focus
on B2B online sales growth.
Because of these changing buyer attitudes, strong demand for
Magento 2.2 is expected in the B2B industries, as merchants
look to benefit from the host of new and leading B2B features
made available in the new release.
Magento has been named a leader in The Forrester Wave: B2B
Commerce Suites For Midsize Organizations. The report cited
the Magento platform as:
"Best fit for mid-sized B2B companies that want an open,
feature-rich solution that can be extended easily
