About Us and History

We operate as an e-commerce partner helping your organization deliver innovative supply chain solutions to drive efficiency, drive down costs, and help reduce your carbon footprint.

Innovative thinking supply chain partner

B2BE came into existence in 1998 in Australia, born from the idea the internet would become the platform in which business would be conducted in the coming years. We like to think we weren’t wrong in that sense.

Since inception we have always looked at ways the internet can be leveraged to improve business processes and product development and augmentation has been key in this thinking, while still keeping to our principals that what we design and deliver will always be based on using the internet as the platform.

We, as a business, have also looked further afield than Australia. We firmly believed that the internet would not only bring a new way of doing business, it would be global, and therefore we needed to be as well.

We now operating throughout Asia Pacific, Europe and North America and delivering electronic supply chain solutions globally. The B2BE team speak over 17 languages and operate in 20+ countries and regions.

B2BE’s solutions span several business functions targeting finance, procurement and transactional environments all providing process improvement and cost savings and tools that are all internet based.

We really like the idea of new things, however, with a practical eye in being able to deliver something that businesses need and not things that sound great and yet have no practical value.

Even if we don’t do something now, we’re always happy to listen to our clients to understand what will help them. Get in touch, we’re always happy to listen.
