Most of us would agree that experience matters. Whether you’re hiring a plumber, a pediatrician, a mechanic or a scientist, you typically choose the seasoned professional when given a choice. Why?

In a recent article in MIT Sloan Management Review, Why Customer Experience Matters for B2B, the authors explore how better omnichannel experiences drive stronger sales results on consumer sites, but this logic is often neglected when it comes to B2B.
