  • They can guide the customer through custom functionalities that are the best understandable in the storefront experience (e.g. a product configurator)
  • They can impress customers and save them time by quickly creating orders and quotes on their behalf.
  • And they can take care of administrative tasks such as adding buyers and setting up approval rules.
