@Marketplace with over 1 million logins we believe that the @Marketplace is the largest b2b marketplace in the world. There are over 2.3 million products from @UK PLC SiteGenerator ecommerce sites and over 1 million more products available via punchout, with over 3 million products that have been purchased via punchout or are visible on the @Marketplace at any time. The key difference is a balanced attitude between buyers and suppliers. @UK PLC seeks to allow supplier to make their goods and services as easy to purchase as possible for customers, and display their offerings through high quality ecommerce sites.
Some suppliers choose not to invest in their ecommerce sites, and so have lower quality sites, but by ensuring that invoices match requisitions the data is kept up to date, and over time the suppliers move to improving their sites. We are now making the marketplace public and promoting it, so that people can see all the content on the marketplace, and this will provide some additional benefit for those suppliers with high quality sites to sell more through the system.
