A new Ohana user interface will enable the connection, communication, and intimacy between IT Sellers and SMBs.
SMBs looking to grow their business and buy IT products and services simply join Ohana for a nominal subscription fee. They can select which IT Sellers they wish to send a message to in the form of a inquiry, question, request for quote, meeting invite, or simply a call back. In one simple transaction, SMBs can leverage hundreds of sellers to get the best pricing, service and save time doing it. An SMB can save thousands of dollars by vetting the best sellers and products to build their IT infrastructure. Lastly, SMBs have access to communicate and conduct business with all other SMBs on Ohana to build their own customer base and increase sales.
IT sellers can increase sales very easily and conveniently. As a member of Ohana, they can simply receive unsolicited sales leads from interested SMBs and acquire new customers. They can also choose to pursue Ohana's "open requests" and win a bid by receiving alerts and notification of keywords which match services, solutions and products they sell. IT sellers can brand themselves on Ohana with displaying their current specials and by keeping building their profile for SMBs to find them. Sellers keep a "finger on the pulse" on their own customers, the SMB buying trends, sentiments and competitors as well. An important social aspect of Ohana is the SMB Community feature which has a star rating to highlight the best IT sellers for others to learn about.
