WILMINGTON, NC-IndustryPigeon Inc. has launchedIndustryPigeon.com , the world’s first social trade network designed for industrial trade professionals. The new platform integrates networking and collaboration tools with practical business applications to connect people in trade communities and facilitate their day-to-day workflow.

IndustryPigeon is business personified, as it enables co-workers, trade partners, technical sales representatives, industrial marketers and others in the extended enterprise to develop personal relationships and discover new business contacts and products. Users can also communicate and share information, and collaborate with each other on invoices, purchase orders, inventory and other transactional processes. The service is free of charge for manufacturers, manufacturer representatives, distributers, service providers, and other professionals involved in the industrial commerce sector.

“Companies still cope with poor communication vehicles and process disruptions, especially when collaborating with customers, vendors, and other trading partners. The development of IndustryPigeon was motivated by those inefficiencies consuming a lot of valuable time and money,” states Robert Preville, IndustryPigeon president and CEO. “IndustryPigeon addresses the complexities of manufacturing and selling industrial products, while connecting people within their respective trade verticals, supply chains, and distribution channels. The result is a social trade network with commercial-grade technology that puts people back into the business equation.”
