The COVID-19 pandemic and the subsequent difficulty of doing business in person has led to significant growth in vertical marketplaces as doubts about their effectiveness have proven baseless, according to telecom & datacom marketplace Twoosk.
It is expected that 2.14bn people will shop online this year and the online retail trade is now being reflected by a major shift towards large corporate organisations doing the same to source their equipment. In the telecommunications marketplace, Europe-based Twoosk now has more than 30 sellers in 14 countries and has just released its top ten reasons for telcos to buy virtually.
Twoosk CEO, André Manteigas explains: “The pandemic has brought even more awareness to the need to digitally transform the way we do business in telecommunications and datacom markets. In terms of buyers, providing all the information, technical, pricing, availability from different suppliers in one single place will make the buying process needs to be simpler and more efficient. In terms of the sellers, they require an alternative channel to acquire and develop a base of new customers that wouldn’t be found in any other way. Twoosk is the path to help improve the life of the telecommunications professionals community.”
The top ten reasons to buy telecoms equipment from a telecom & datacom Marketplace include being able to buy anytime, anywhere, removing the need for time-consuming, inefficient, manual purchasing systems and being able to negotiate with suppliers directly in the marketplace.
