B2B Buyer Survey: Technology Industry Results

There’s no denying it. Millions of B2B buyers are changing how, where, and when they want to buy. As a result, the end-to-end buying experience has become as powerful a differentiator as any game changing feature in any product.
To help you in your consideration of how to meet the new B2B buyer’s expectations, PROS worked with Hanover Research to survey the perspectives of purchasing and procurement leaders on what was important to them in the buying experience. Those results are found in: What B2B Buyers Want: A Survey of 1053 Purchasing Professionals.

Moreover, what should technology companies do to fulfill their needs?
