Coordinating trucking services to and from construction sites is a logistical headache.

Trux Chief Revenue Officer Tom Spencer discusses the role digitization plays in streamlining the movement of funds.
Keysight Technologies, whose offerings include hardware and software for testing and measuring networks and equipment, announced in a press release that it has expanded its B2B eCommerce website in the Americas to 26 countries in the European Union and the United Kingdom, making purchasing easier for customers. “Keysight’s goal is to create an integrated multi-channel transactional ecosystem that offers customers an effortless purchasing experience via the coexistence of eCommerce and distribution,” Kari Fauber, senior director of global partners and eCommerce at Keysight Technologies, said in the release.
Beauty and wellness software platform Fresha has closed a $100 million Series C funding round, which will go toward boosting its services, including a B2B marketplace, according to a press release. Salons, spas and barbershops can manage their B2B operations using Fresha’s subscription-free business software, the release stated. The software allows them to book appointments, process payments and manage customer records, which can cut down on some of the common problems those organizations face.
