Innovative Business Application Adds 1,000 Customers in Just One Year

First Social B2B Business and Credit Rating Platform Shows Explosive Growth in First Year

 

 

DREXEL HILL, PA — February 1, 2013 – G2Link (www.g2link.com), the first social B2B rating platform provider, announced today record customer growth through its first year of operations. Launched one year ago today, G2Link is now serving over 1,000 business professionals who use the application to review and monitor their key customers, vendors and partners. In addition, G2Link is currently tracking trust and reputation statistics for more than fifty thousand companies.

 

“We are in the midst of a seismic shift towards crowd-powered information,” said Edward Sullivan, G2Link Founder and CEO. “By harnessing the wisdom of peers, we are changing the way businesses interact. Social networks are transforming into information networks.”

Before G2Link, businesses had limited options. They had to rely upon payment and accounting data alone to make critical decisions. This data was collected and protected by the large B2B credit bureaus that charged fees for each view into this data. This information is historical and, at best, gives you red flags in the past. Many companies burn precious resources doing this themselves or, even worse, waste engineering resources to build a custom solution. Others purchase expensive, difficult to use systems designed on antiquated business processes.

G2Link is changing all of this by empowering companies to take control of their risk management. By continually leveraging working knowledge from within the worldwide business ecosystem, G2Link provides actionable reputation data helping companies make important bottom line decisions. Now, over 1,000 business professionals such as finance, sales and procurement have embraced this technology and selected G2Link’s Trust and Reputation platform to manage their risk.
