A custom Developed Customer – to – Vendor Lead Generation Portal


Our client, BusinessBid is a Middle-east organization specialized in consulting services approached us to build a Customer – to – Vendor portal offering customers with list of service providers for home improvement and repair services. The concept of BusinessBid was introduced into the UAE after detailed and extensive research which highlighted the need of a comprehensive, efficient and a single source of connecting users to vendors within the UAE market.

Highlights of the System

BusinessBid team asked NetiApps to build a custom developed Customer – to – Vendor portal with well managed lead generation mechanism. From a business perspective, NetiApps decided to use Symfony, a leading PHP framework to build the portal. Symfony guarantees easy scalability as traffic and transaction increase. Additionally, being an open sourced product meant it carried no licensing fees which helped BusinessBid to keep its cost low in comparison with non-open sourced products. The BusinessBid team outlined a very clear objectives. They wanted a self-sustaining and well managed lead generation portal with a simpler interface. NetiApps provided an end-to-end scalable solution for BusinessBid using Symfony and all the processes are integrated seamlessly. This portal is a competitive V2C marketplace which will help to build vendors and customers to enhance customer satisfaction and loyalty, enhance service, and reduce customer service and cost.
