B2B eCommerce


Integrated with IDEA's Industry Data Warehouse (IDW) and pre-populated with manufacturer-approved product data, the iCIMM2 web storefront software can help you quickly build your online catalogs and differentiate your products from competitors.

Rich, Accurate Product Content:

Through integration with the IDW, iCIMM2 is continually updated as manufacturers make changes to their product data. This means you will always have access to the most up-to-date and accurate product information, allowing you to easily manage your own online catalog content and integrate it with your ERP system.

Key Benefits:

  • Expect quick turnaround time due to industry-specific knowledge and seamless IDW integration
  • Increase speed-to-market by taking control of your eCommerce website
  • Provide full compatibility with all browsers and mobile devices
  • Personalize the user experience with customer-specific catalogs, pricing and featured items

User-Friendly Search and Ordering Navigation:

Buyers can easily search your iCIMM2 web storefront to find products by using the software's flexible search and viewing options. Your buyers can also create a user profile to save and access their buying preferences at any time. The iCIMM2 can then capture your buyers' preferences upon login so their future shopping experiences can be more personalized.

The iCIMM2 software enables you to manage your catalog content, publish multiple versions of the content to various media, and provide robust search engine capabilities to your customers.
