What is a Marketplace Network?

LET'S START WITH "WHAT IS A STANDALONE MARKETPLACE?"

nm2

A standalone marketplace enables sales transactions among multiple buyers and multiple sellers.

NEXT, "WHAT IS A MARKETPLACE ECOSYSTEM?"

nm2

A marketplace ecosystem of services and products adds value to users in the marketplace (buyers, sellers and other ecosystem users).

Partners within the ecosystem reside in a different platform or network, and since there is no integration between these providers and the core marketplace, seamless workflows to offer solutions to buyers or sellers in a marketplace do not occur efficiently.

NOW, "WHAT IS A MARKETPLACE NETWORK?"

nm2

A marketplace network effectively coordinates numerous providers of products and services around a buyer.

In a network, buyers are not only better informed during discovery and decision-making processes but also establish long-term integrated relationships. These integrated relationships ensure that buyers needs are satisfied beyond a simple buy-sell transaction and are seamlessly addressed across the value chain.

Similarly, by using seamlessly integrated workflows, a marketplace network creates a highly collaborative environment for suppliers to work with buyers. With this super-platform of interconnected services and products, more efficient transactions are possible for suppliers, leading to cost reduction, as well as service (and potentially product) quality improvements, benefiting users across the value chain.
