“I know how hard it can be to drive digital transformation initiatives, and I’ve made it my mission to ease that journey for B2B sellers. At Oro, I’ve found like-minded people that truly understand the power and complexity of B2B eCommerce. They have built a solution that empowers business users in ways I haven’t seen in any other platform,” Andrews says. “My goal is to give customers an end-to-end digital experience that not only makes their lives easier and their businesses more successful, but also delivers those ‘aha’ moments” that come with game-changing digital transformations.”
