Technological integration

To achieve strategic Internet marketing goals, B2B organisations will have to plan for integration with customers' and suppliers' systems. Chaffey (2006) describes how a supplier may have to support technical integration with a range of customer e-procurement needs, for example:

For example, supermarkets often insist that their suppliers trade with them electronically. However, the supplier may be faced with the cost of setting up different types of links with different supermarket customers.
