Matchboard hits 1000th client milestone with Royal Society for the Blind

SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA – November 7, 2014 – Searching online for a suitable product or service provider can be a highly frustrating experience, when you get hundreds of thousands of results returned by search engines. The question, “Where do I start?” echoes in offices everywhere, from start-ups to large enterprise. Two-year-old Matchboard is helping to relieve some of this frustration for people trying to locate “perfect match” suppliers for their business needs. The Aussie Internet company has proven its free buyer-supplier matching service works, celebrating its 1000th client this month.

Managing Director, Sharon Melamed, said, “We’ve just completed our 1000th client request, and I’m pleased to say it was for an extremely worthy cause. We helped Royal Society for the Blind (a national blindness agency providing free services to people who are blind or vision-impaired) with an urgent requirement for a tele-fundraising service. Our matching software quickly identified a shortlist of three call Australian call centre providers, with the requisite experience in the not-for-profit sector. They’re now up and running with the chosen supplier.”

The way Matchboard works is that you click on a product or service icon on its home page, fill out a questionnaire of up to 10 (mainly tick-box) questions outlining your needs, and the proprietary software locates suitable vendors to assist. Requests can also be lodged via phone. The company’s niche is the whole supply chain around “sales, service and back office”. This includes hundreds of offerings such as call centres, self-service technology, social media monitoring, outsourced sales, data and training.
