Existing Problems

  • Social fatigue & Non-weighted recommendations:
    • People get bored easily from doing the same networking “tasks”.
    • People are too lazy to find out what recommendation is “trustworthy”.
  • Incoherent B2B experience:
  • B2B social applications lack transactional features
    • Deals cannot be closed and project cannot be managed / tracked in the same place.
  • Online B2B marketplaces lack social features
    • Harder to communicate and build trust effectively .

Innovations

  • Prestige System
  • Every company has a certain amount of “prestige”. It can’t be measured perfectly, but its existence is undeniably important. The Prestige Point System wants to solidify such idea in Prestige can come from within a company, by the people working for it, or from outside, by other companies or people who have worked with it. Prestige can also come from the existing statistic of the company itself.

Party

slide11

Innovations

  • Prestige is measured based on:
  • Public status: Public (+ public market code + company code) or Private (+ company code)
  • Governmental or non-governmental company
  • Years of operation
  • Total & latest revenue
  • Total & latest profit
  • Amount of testimonials from other companies / individuals.
  • Prestige of companies/individuals that gave the testimonials (recalculated quarterly).
  • Testimonials can be given to either company profile or on a project to project basis.

Party

slide12

Innovations

  • There is more than 1 layer of Prestige:
  • Prestige in each city – stated in each testimonial (sum of all formulas)
  • Prestige in each country (sum of Each City’s Population * Prestige).
  • Prestige in each continent (sum of Each Country’s GDP * Prestige).
  • Global prestige (sum of all Continent’s Prestige + other measurements).

Party

slide13

Innovations

  • Prestige point system should be built based on:
  • Opinions from some potential end users / companies.

  • 1 famous Finnish economist (for both professional measuring and marketing purpose).
