Sales Spider Provides Social Network Capabilities to Leading Canadian Office Solution Company, Grand & Toy

TORONTO -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 05/07/08 -- Sales Spider, the leading small business social network, announced today that Canadian office solutions company Grand & Toy will leverage the Sales Spider platform to build its own social network for small and medium sized businesses (SMBs). Members will gain access to the many features that Sales Spider offers with additional information built specifically for SMBs.

"Sales Spider truly understands the needs of small businesses and realizes they often do not have access to the same resources that their larger counterparts do," said Russell Rothstein, CEO of Sales Spider. "Our new visual user interface allows SMBs to easily access sales leads and classified ads through a unique model that combines social networking with powerful business tools."

Sales Spider is the largest social network for SMBs and a 'one stop shop' for friend-finding, business development, networking and partnering, posting and searching b2b classified ads, and accessing sales leads and government business opportunities. Rapidly growing over 100 percent per quarter, Sales Spider expects to dominate its market in 2008 as the only social network focused on delivering business benefits.

"Partnering with a leader like Sales Spider will enable us to offer our customers a turnkey platform where they can network and create business partnerships," said Valerie Jones, General Manager, e-Commerce and Third Party at Grand & Toy. "We will also engage SMBs in conversation to learn what's keeping them up at night and what products and services they like and dislike. All of this will help Grand & Toy become a true customer advocate for small business owners."

"From its inception, Sales Spider has appealed to SMBs and our membership continues to grow every month because we address a real industry need that has not yet been met. Our association with Grand & Toy is yet another step toward reaching out to small business owners and bringing them easy to access networking solutions," said Rothstein.

Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals. This is often especially true in financial services, where the legacy environment is many times unable to keep up with the rapidly shifting demands of the consumer. The constant pressure to provide complete, omnichannel delivery of customer-facing solutions to meet both regulatory and customer demands is putting enormous pressure on...
IoT is rapidly becoming mainstream as more and more investments are made into the platforms and technology. As this movement continues to expand and gain momentum it creates a massive wall of noise that can be difficult to sift through. Unfortunately, this inevitably makes IoT less approachable for people to get started with and can hamper efforts to integrate this key technology into your own portfolio. There are so many connected products already in place today with many hundreds more on the h...
