b2b.store, previously known as RNF Digital, has been supporting some of the largest wholesalers in the UK with a bespoke development service, beginning with the first wholesale app for Bestway Cash and Carry back in 2013.
Bestway was the first mainstream wholesaler to embrace mobile technology and continues to be at the leading edge of digital innovation. Bestway remains a client of b2b.store to this day.
In 2013 the only way to deliver best possible user experience was to use “native app” technology that integrated into Bestway’s in-house eCommerce system. But technology quickly progressed and huge efficiency gains were made possible with open-source frameworks like React Native. This was the approach adopted for the current generation of Bestway apps which now support its wholesale, food and pet channels. b2b.store’s enterprise team is also responsible for multiple apps used by other major wholesalers such as the Blakemore Group and Filshill in Scotland.
BEAM – our flagship marketing platform – is also used extensively by our enterprise customers, and has become a crucial component of their digital strategy. The platform is used to post digital content to customers via their apps in the form of in-app advertising and powerful rich push notifications. Since the platform’s launch in 2016, it has delivered 100s of millions of ad impressions, and has posted over 5m push notifications, thereby increasing engagement and driving sales.

Ozan Okyay Purchase Manager, Extra Cash & Carry "The whole process was simple from start to finish. We only filled an excel form with our product details and sent the pictures and our wholesale app was ready to use. It is amazing that only in a couple of days our own name App was ready to use"
Jackie Watt, Thomsons Foodservice "Just wanted to say that we are delighted with your b2b eCommerce service that has now gone live. We have had some amazing feedback."
Ben Morgan-Smith, CPO, BrewBroker "The freemium model allowed us to very quickly spin up a sales solution for all the available stock that was sitting around in shut down breweries. Great system, model and service from the guys at b2b.store. Could not recommend them enough."

Rowan International "The desktop optimisation is brilliant! Having more products on screen is amazing - much less scrolling! Plus, having the shopping basket at the side of the page is very handy.
