With buyers based in remote locations, accessing prospective supplier's credentials has so far been a daunting task. However, to bridge this trust gap, IndiaMART.com, India's leading online B2B marketplace, has recently launched an exclusive facility - 'Video Profile' for suppliers. This service will provide the buyers with a first-hand experience of viewing the suppliers' office, product range, overall infrastructure and manufacturing processes, in a short video uploaded on the latter's website.
Commenting on the exclusive service, Mr. Dinesh Agarwal, Founder & CEO, IndiaMART.com said, "Based on the premises that globally many buyers are apprehensive to do transactions with small businesses due to non-verification of their background and qualification, we are proud to bring out the service 'Video Profiles' which provides an optimal solution to this quandary. The buyers will now be able to derive satisfaction about the suppliers through a thorough look at their credentials presented in the videos. And, in turn, suppliers too would be able to add credibility to their profiles."
