  • Beginings of Social Networking: Business Process Redesign With Vertical Net Communities
    a very high promise of future success for their business model Rafalaf 1999 Business to Business Trading Industry The traditional way of information procurement in niche markets is very difficult and inefficient It typically involves catalogs trade shows talking to the colleagues or being in user groups and professional associations Cheng 1999 To make a transaction off line acquisition costs had to include hefty commissions to several intermediaries accounting for as much as 40 of the purchase cost Girishankar 1999 Advertising fees were also very high upwards of 10 000 a month for a one page ad in a trade journal In addition to high fees of using the off line advertising off line journals are very selective in their content essentially denying the customers access to the company s whereabouts and what they make if it s not an advertiser I ain t gonna tell you about that guy Marlatt 1999 Essentially the print companies were making choices for the users Searching on the web can be more informative but sometimes is very difficult In most cases traditional model involved customer searching for the information on the web by using Internet directories such as Yahoo and Excite or search engines like Web Crawler and Altavista Anyone who has ever searched the web has been impressed with the ease of searching and the difficulty of finding Brock 1998 Hundreds of thousands of useless hits are typically produced and the consumer has to sieve through it all to find less then 1 of relevant information An actual Altavista search for Chemical Engineering and Water Pumps produced 187 411 hits Altavista 2000 First 10 hits ranged from pornography to attorneys perhaps because they specialize in pumping their customer s wallets and individual companies making water pumps Searching through such a list is often overwhelming and very inefficient Brock 1998 Interaction with information is still typically one way only where the content is delivered to the passive consumers who have no control over it In the traditional model the same can be said about the e commerce and advertising it is typically very generic super market like advertising Comparison shopping is virtually non existent Even if a company like Dell Computers offers customization Dell wisely refuses to provide prices and specs of their competitors Dell 2000 Consumers must search individual company s Websites and perform comparing on their own Ford runs extranets for suppliers and vendors but if you want to buy an engine guess what they recommend Shaw 1997 Customers thus have to decide whether or not to make a purchase based only the individual company s information and advertising provided by the sales person On line Vertical Industry Community companies like Vertical Net Ventro and National Trucking Exchange are redesigning this outdated process of trading and finding content through the use of VNCs These companies are concentrating first and foremost on building the sense of the community where visitors can find information and people with similar interests These communities make it easy to find the information and products classified vertically along the industry lines Gome 1999 They also shift the focus from distributing the information to the passive consumer to making the active users part of the equation through VNCs The first component of the business process redesign is the content Vertical Net hired good editors away from the trade magazines in order to create vertically integrated databases of up to the minute topical material Shaw 1997 The company then combines this great content with specific industry and product information and live forums Shaw 1997 They further foster the communities with news from Reuters Business Wire PR Wire and Wise Wire and targeted vertically segmented job lists by Headhunter net Marlatt 1999 Traditional generic e commerce and advertising is also re designed through VNCs These new B2B Vertical Hubs are challenging the business as usual being far more concerned with acting as a community building knowledge disseminators then they are with selling Product A made by Company B to Consumer C Shaw 1997 The process is redesigned to engage and empower the customers rather then force the sale and grab a fat commission In the field of commerce Vertical Net build the advanced powerful information system software to focus on comparison shopping and making sure that the customer can get all the needed product information on line with the fewest clicks possible The information about a product or company is typically hyperlinked with another article about it or to a comparison article about another advertiser or a link to a web page of the manufacturer or a link to the EPA so you can see what the EPA commissioner just wrote on the issue Marlatt 1999 All of the relevant information is presented to the user who is empowered to make informed decisions If you want I will show you every company that makes pinch valves You can find their Websites you can call them I don t block you from knowing who is or isn t in a given business says Mark Walsh CEO of VN in an interview with FOLIO Marlatt 1999 This complete focus on being buyer centric and allowing the industry members to deal directly with each other dramatically shortens the time it takes to generate sales leads and decreases the cost of closing the deal Cheng 1999 But Vertical Net goes much further It connects buyers and sellers and makes money on the transaction It hosts chats and forums for a particular industry where for example wastewater engineers can exchange ideas For a comparatively little fee of 6 000 Vertical Net will also host a specialized company s website for 1 year allowing the company to update the product and advertising information hourly if needed and drive real traffic to their site that sells real products Marlatt 1999 This redesign of the business process decreases costs and increases efficiency of the trading process through participation and empowerment of active focused audiences and delivery of vertically integrated
