BASF has entered into a multi-year agreement with Agilis Chemicals Inc., provider of digital commerce technology for the chemical industry. BASF launched a digital sales portal for its OPPANOL® polyisobutene product family last April and has recently added more products to the portal.
"Our customers have embraced the digital commerce portal. Within the first year, we have seen a significant growth in sales, an increase in repeat orders and a significant improvement in sales efficiency thanks to the self-service features of the Agilis portal," says Marius Vaarkamp, Business Director, Fuel and Lubricant Solutions, BASF. "We look forward to continuing our partnership with Agilis, making the customer online experience simple, convenient, and easy-to-use."
OPPANOL is marketed as a solution for a diverse spectrum of applications in a wide range of industries, including automotive, construction, packaging, electronics and food sectors. "Our mission at Agilis is to help chemical suppliers implement smart and intuitive digital commerce solutions that don't require them to change how they do business," says Jay Bhatia, Founder and CEO of Agilis. "The success that we are seeing with BASF proves that producers of all sizes can benefit from a commerce platform that's tailor-made for the chemical industry."
BASF is planning to add more products to its web portal, including its Glissopal® product line for adhesives and sealants markets and new grades of the OPPANOL® products. To learn more about the OPPANOL® e-commerce portal, visit: https://oppanol.agilischemicals.com.
