How Does eMarketplace Work?

eMarketplace: Buyers-Suppliers secure trading. The solution can be deployed as a private or vertical eMarketplace which provides buyers and suppliers with a one stop shop. This allows you to manage catalogues, goods and services with seamless integration to existing systems and specialised analytics, enabling a deep understanding of the supply chain. Or, you could use this technology to create a Public eMarketplace that enables a Business-to-Business online platform to be operated by a third party or consortium, which is open to buyers or suppliers securing a confident simple engagement process.
