A key aspect of matrix commerce is post-sale commerce. Both B2B and B2C companies are keenly aware of the importance of how to service customers once the sales are consummated. There are nuances in how both B2B and B2C industries approach post-sale commerce. For B2B, it is about the impact on revenue, while for B2C, there is a focus on opportunity cost. Regardless of the business, post-sale commerce requires a high rate of attention to protect margin, generate additional revenue and ensure brand integrity.
