Maybe they notice how important e-business is and will be. To stay
competetive and gain competetive, a business has to be profitable and
lower costs as much as it can. Implementation of E-business,
integrations and partnerships are the best ways of doing so.

For ex, as far as I know, the biggest German industris are auto
industry, technology and manufacturing. To penatrate and/or stay at
foreign markets, e-business implemetation is a must.  UK, on the
other hand, is more focused on generating revenues from providing

I work for a large international distributor, which conducts much of
its business in Germany. We have noticed that e-procurement is far more
popular in Germany than the UK.

Figures in the latest 2004 European E-Business Report confirm this
difference. Page 23 illustrates that in Germany 12% of firms and
enterprises comprising 20% of employees buy on B2B trading platforms.
This compares to figures for the UK of 5% of firms and enterprises
comprising 8% of employees buying on B2B trading platforms.

Can anyone suggest reasons for the importance of buying on B2B trading
platforms, in particular B2B e-procurement in Germany?
