Dotconnector Sdn Bhd_brandname
dotConnector is a business connectivity platform for B2B technology companies. The platform matches suitable technology products and services with buyers and partners, which facilitates cross-border technology discovery and business matching.
Companies are constantly seeking technology for innovation and operational reasons. Apart from technology events and business network, there isn’t a comprehensive directory for tech solutions that is universal enough to be used by all companies. This leads to 90% of B2B solutions worldwide being beyond the reach of companies that are in need.
The solution needs to address a few key factors – accessibility, ease of use and value proposition.
dotConnector will help businesses to be discovered by high intent technology seekers regardless of limitations of geography, language, lacking digital marketing etc which makes it highly accessible.
Intuitive to use for business users similar to LinkedIn and provides intelligent business matching for its users which helps obtaining highly qualified business leads automatically.
