Matchboard’s simple proposition is “enter your needs and get connected with suppliers who can meet them”. Not only is the service disarmingly simple, it’s free to use, which app
eals to a client-base ranging from IT managers to procurement executives at large enterprise. Founder Sharon Melamed said, “It’s a rewarding feeling to help companies quickly and easily find technology solutions for their needs, and get down to business. I think we’ve really filled a gap in the market – while there are plenty of consumer sites matching people with the best insurance, home loans and other products for their needs, there was a lack of innovation with this matching concept in the B2B sector. Busy IT executives now have an alternative to wading through search engines to find key suppliers for their business.” With its initial focus on the “sales, service, and back office” space, the most popular offerings in Matchboard’s Technology category are: contact centre solutions, social media management systems, workforce management software and knowledge management systems. One of the secrets to Matchboard’s success has been its Referral Program, offering partners and affiliates a hefty commission for any leads referred through to the site. Visit www.Matchboard.com.au.
