Labface b2b Networking
When buyers and suppliers register, they will access their own admin area. From here they can select any products and/or events they have added via the 'add events' and the 'make a star' links on the associated events and product pages across the site.
For example, when buyers land on a main product page they can click on the 'make a star' link on the right to add that product (and associated supplier) to their favourite list. They can also go to the events section and click on the 'add event' link to add an event to their list. They can then see the associated suppliers who sell those products and are attending the events they have chosen in their admin area. Buyers must be registered to do this and it takes just 15 seconds!
Remember, the buyers are always in control with the b2b networking functionality and their contact details will never be given to a supplier unless they contact the supplier first and open up other lines of communication.
The suppliers do not get the same communication privileges as buyers because we don't want to open up excessive and one-sided communications from suppliers. However, the supplier will have the opportunity to respond to a registered buyer only after that buyer has made contact first.
This is a very simple network system which enables registered buyers to store and save relevant information to their favourite list as they browse the product and events pages on the site.
