Last night I read idea of online platform, where experts on different business skills can offer their expertize for companies. Company called
Abonnet offers online platform for advisory board. With this idea, experts can give a helping hand for companies and act as their advisors on different areas.
They also have created free of cost themed platform, where any organization can set up their own platform for different subjects. First themed platform is online volunter place, where NGOs can attract new volunteers to work for them online. See webvolunteering.org.
This themed idea is bold and new way to engage your close partners to work together.
Based on this idea, I started to think if there is a need for this kind of experts and SMEs platform for payment area. Idea would be hosting a site powerred by Abonnet, where SMEs can set up project for example for expanding to new country and searching
optimal online payment solutions. Experts can then enter this platform and offer first their solutions. SMEs can ask questions about experts and then select their experts to work for. Because this platform offers secure place to create documents, have online
meetings and share documents online, it would help companies to select right payment options for them.
Question is, does SMEs need help on payments? Who is offering help them today and finally how much experts really understand the real deep needs of payment solutions required by SMEs.
