I just had the chance to check out a new press release from Buyers Meeting Point, one of our sponsors. It appears that, despite the increasing proliferation of supply chain-related content on the Web, Buyers Meeting Point is growing its traffic nicely. Here is the full text of the press release…
August 20, 2008
Buyers Meeting Point
Co-Founder, Cindy Allen-Murphy, discussed the concept of Buyers Meeting Point and their growth since March 2008.
“Buyers Meeting Point is a unique place on the World Wide Web for buying professionals from all kind of industries, profit and non-profit to learn, share and ultimately grow your knowledge, yourself and your business.
“There is an online environment provided where procurement professionals can meet; share ideas, exchange visions, business models, find answers to questions and much more. As part of this service, there is an opportunity to exchange and sell high-end knowledge for business improvement. The range of available knowledge areas is diverse, ranging from simple yet useful templates to direction setting strategy whitepapers.”
Harco Bouwman, co-founder, stated yesterday “We are excited to see the growth of traffic on the site. It continues to grow at a rate of 10-15% per month. The more professionals that visit, the more information will be available for everyone to share. We like to encourage that so we can learn from each other and not have to reinvent the wheel. Registered users on the site have access to monthly newsletters, the forum for networking, network building via the “direct connect” functionality in the member area and many other features. The benefits are becoming evident as we monitor the growth of our user community”.
Buyers Meeting Point believes in better business for a better world and donates a significant part of the profit to Plan International, their global charity partner. This is a great compliment to their mission and strategy. Through that affiliation, Plan is supported in their work which contributes to the strength of future generations. As those children mature into adults, they become the workers, managers and leaders of businesses, schools and various organizations.
Buyers Meeting Point is unique as a global community hosted for procurement professionals. The company is based in Amsterdam, The Netherlands with a subsidiary in the United States, located in Boston.
