Chicago, IL, United States, 2008/03/06 - KnowledgeBid Expert Network Management Software Continues to Challenge The Gerson Lehrman Group, Nitron Advisors, Vista Research, and Other Incumbent Subscription Based Expert Network Rental Services.
KnowledgeBid, the expert network management platform, was selected as a “Firm to Watch” by Integrity Research Associates in their comprehensive ResearchFocus analysis on the expert network industry. Integrity Research, an independent consultancy specializing in the analysis of investment research providers, selected KnowledgeBid among a field of The Gerson Lehrman Group, Nitron Advisors, Vista Research and others. The KnowledgeBid expert network management platform continues to challenge the incumbent subscription-based rental services by offering an efficient and easy to use solution for researchers to communicate with primary information sources and industry experts. Unlike the existing subscription based consultancy networks, KnowledgeBid is not limited by network size, charges no subscription fees, and allows researchers to retain ownership the relationships they develop through the platform.
“KnowledgeBid gives researchers unprecedented access to primary information sources and industry experts,” said Rob Webb, KnowledgeBid’s Founder and CEO. “Our platform is the most efficient and easy to use solution in the space today and we are excited that Integrity Research selected us. KnowledgeBid allows researchers and firms to customize, grow and retain ownership of their own expert networks. Before we launched our platform, the only option researchers had was to rent a network from a 3rd party provider. Now researchers can grow and retain ownership of their networks through KnowledgeBid.”
KnowledgeBid is a web-based expert network management platform that allows researchers to quickly, easily and efficiently communicate with primary information sources and industry experts. Researchers looking for information or expertise can use KnowledgeBid to describe what they want to know and how much they are willing to pay for a consultation. Information providers can then apply for the contract and communicate with the researcher through the KnowledgeBid Secure Conference Platform.
KnowledgeBid authenticates the identities of information providers by asking a series of questions generated in real time based on 900 data sources, 20 billion records, 1 million daily updates and 30 years of history. When an information buyer selects an information provider to speak to, a conference call is scheduled on the KnowledgeBid secure conference platform. The system monitors the duration of the discussion and processes buyer billing and provider payment accordingly.
KnowledgeBid (knowledgebid.com) connects those who seek niche information and expertise with those who hold it. Typical information buyers are investors, product manufacturers, and market researchers who want to speak to people with industry and market-specific knowledge.
