B2B Portals We Develop
Depending on the objectives sought, ScienceSoft’s team offer the following portal modifications for your business.
According to the roles the owners take on:
A single big buyer or a group of buyers operate a portal and thereby can engage themselves in purchasing and reverse auctions, benefit from e-procurement methods (e-tendering, e-sourcing, e-MRO) and avoid maverick buying.
These are B2B portals owned by one big seller or a group of sellers who look for potential buyers online. A supplier-oriented application contributes immensely to the company’s recognition and customer retention, as well as opens new trade options (such as auctions). Buyers take advantage of supplier directories, as they get access to comprehensive information on profiles of suppliers and related products and services.
This type of B2B portals is controlled by a party not exactly involved in the transaction process. Such a portal provides much space for collaborative business processes through secure buyer-seller qualification, integration with multiple internal systems of its members, industry analysis, bid coordination and escrow service.
According to the portal content:
Vertical trade portals
Our team design an online working site that links all supply chain segments of one industry or industry sector. Such portals enhance your operating efficiency, lower intermediary costs and considerably reduce order cycle time.
Horizontal trade portals
ScienceSoft will develop an architecture of a huge open market with advanced search options, which concentrates on a service, material or a product, bringing together buyers and sellers from different industries in both domestic and international markets.
