The team has highlighted the way that some of the most popular shared economy platforms serve to be a bridge between the supply and demand side of a particular marketplace. These app-based platforms successfully match people looking for a service with multiple potential suppliers of that service. The apps do more than provide the names – they are full of the required relevant detail as well as reviews posted by previous buyers of the service.
In fact, the most rewarding of these shared economy apps remove any need for a ‘buyer beware’ style warning. The app makes it obvious what the service will be, how much it cost, who will deliver it, their qualifications to provide it and their track record of having done so successfully.
The comparisons with our Field Engineer Platform are there for all to see and the Light Reading team drew the parallels. The fundamentals are the same both in a sense the way that the platform identifies potential suppliers, but also in the way that it seamlessly manages the commercial side of the transaction.
With Field Engineer, network operators, system integrators or equipment manufacturers can search for Certified Engineers with particular skill sets in virtually any part of the world. They will be presented a group of fully qualified engineers, in the right location, with details of their availability and a quote for undertaking the job.
