B2B Trading Platform
Next Generation B2B
Before Google made search easy, internet users used Alta Vista to find websites and before Trip Advisor travellers relied on advice from their travel agent. Now as AliBaba.com dominates the B2B marketplaces with suppliers paying thousands of dollars for top position, QualityTrade.com provides a free platform that ranks suppliers based on their quality. It is a true merit based system where buyers can source products from the best quality suppliers, not just those that pay the most to advertise.
Matter Design was engaged to execute the QualityTrade concept and build the world’s first merit based B2B marketplace. In order to rank search results based on quality, Matter worked with QualityTrade to develop a proprietary algorithm to process the extensive data for each supplier and generate a scoring system that allows buyers to focus their efforts on the higher quality suppliers.
The platform required extensive custom built functionality to provide the services required by buyers and suppliers in the marketplace environment, and backend processes to enable to operations of the platform.
