What makes a great B2B product?

Overview

We are pleased to invite you to the 87th session of NASSCOM Product Forum at Chennai.

There is a lot of commonality in building products for businesses vs. consumers. In both cases, you want to build products that serve a need, have a substantial market, and are delightful to use.

However, B2B products often reach the market very differently from B2C products, and that leads to significant differences in all aspects of operations.

During this session, we will hear more about what makes a great B2B product from three perspectives – one from Indix, a B2B product designed for high volume use on the cloud for the global market, second from KServeHRMS a large functional product that was designed for use on the cloud, in-premise as well as for personalized situations and finally from iInterchange who focus on products for the Global Container Shipping & Logistics Industry that are delivered as Hosted Services and in-premise models..

We look forward to your valuable participation.
