Business-to-business (B2B) IT firm Xenon arc is launching an enhanced eCommerce platform for small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) to improve their user experience when tapping services for the materials industry, the firm announced on Tuesday (Feb. 3).

The advanced B2B eCommerce solution is powered by Magento Commerce. The new offering expands on Xenon’s disruptive business model, xa-Direct.

“Similar to our client portfolio, we work with leading world-class solutions, such as Magento Commerce, to create value for our customers and clients alike,” Warburg said. “Magento continues to demonstrate clear leadership in eCommerce platform development, execution and expertise as we seek to eliminate operational friction and create the best possible omnichannel buying experience for our customers.”

Xenon arc’s client list includes known brands in the materials industry. Founded in 2010 and headquartered in Bellevue, Washington, Xenon arc has offices in the U.S., Europe, Mexico and Brazil.

“Go-to-market strategies must appreciate the unique needs of these often-underserved customers,” Warburg said. “Our research findings indicate that high-quality customer experiences require the blend of advanced technology solutions and access to high quality, live sales and tech support reps.”
