"And of course from the viewpoint of purchasing managers, they would like also to search with detailed spec. For example, they can specify like mechanical spec, electrical spec, etc."

Alex, I think later they will include advance searches with various fine parameters. As of now they are providing only simple search options.

Hey Brian, most leads from our website come from Google, so in that sense it seemed like a good fit.  We promote our company through a few different hosts, and track each month who comes in, and where do they come from.  This one is too new to tell.  We have only been with them a short time, and so far no leads have come from them.  I am curious to see what leads will come from them, and what kinds of leads, and if it will improve our search engine rankings with Google as well.

Alex, it seems that as of now they are listing the products available with US and neighbor hood countries. Once, if found success , hopefully they will expand the wings to addressing various local markets across the globe.

Brain, it seems that most of the corporate companies are trying to sell directly to customers without any third party interventions. Such direct selling offers may helpful to companies for selling the items with a better price and easiness. From customer point of view, they can have the quality product at a discounted price.

When it comes to good search result, we tend to think that Google will do a good job.

However, at the moment I tried the Advanced search, only 3 countries can be selected: USA, CHina and Germany. Probably  they should have more options like showing results nearby, or sorting by price.

@Burnsy, thanks for this! Can you tell us why your company decided to join the program, what you've learned so far and whether you'd recommend it to peers in this community?

@tirlapur, you are right. The interesting thing - mobile e-commerce trend is not actually tilting to one side of the world as we have had in other technologies in the past. Also, the developing world is indeed ahead in mobile e-commerce as of today, thanks to liberalisation of telecommunication sector. But mobile tools are quite available may be other defficient areas. And what tools do you think companies need providing?

@tirlapur, thanks for your comment. They launched this in January and with most web offerings it'll be "beta" for a while.

Google has a process for supplier certification, but this I need to explore more. Unsure what the criteria are.
