Sitegenerator technology powers effective electronic marketplaces.

The key problem in building electronic marketplaces is the provision and maintenance of suppliers catalogues. SiteGenerator® allows suppliers an easy way to keep their information up to date at a low cost. Historically purchaser driven marketplaces have struggled to get suppliers to place their catalogues online since there has been little incentive to keep information up to date given the closed nature of the marketplace.

Whilst SiteGenerator® can be used for closed marketplaces in an effective manner, it is most effective when used as an open market-lead marketplace.

For example, @UK PLC uses the integrated directory, shopping mall, site creation and content management technology to provide a leading marketplace that is now being shared by an increasing number of partners; please visit www.radio-caroline.net to see this in use.

The ability to provide customised marketplaces with different brands and look and feel around the same core content is one of the major enhancements in SiteGenerator®. The other major enhancement is a new visual editing interface that allows the supplier to view and edit their site online in the same session.



SiteGenerator® now provides an online purchasing system for large organisations such as Bristol City Council. Part of the Bristol purchasing system uses the @UK PLC KickStart™ process for supplier sign-up. See www.bristolebusiness.net for more information.


SiteGenerator® is now powering the PLC portals, launched by @UK PLC®. These consist of a linked brand of '@' companies and domain names, linking directly to companies listed on the @UK PLC database.
