A couple of days ago I posted Part 1of a two-part blog post to describe what a buyer [aka a client] can expect from the MeasureMatch service.
Below, is a shiny, new, more visual way of describing the user experience, the flow.
Check it out and please don’t hesitate to get in touch with any ideas, comments or questions. I’m easily booked for a chat here.

Service Partner Hubs FAQ
Question. I am already a certified partner of a technology vendor that has a MeasureMatch Service Partner Hub, why should I bother?
Answer. Good question. Consultants, consultancies, agencies and SIs in our network are applying to be featured as technology vendor partners for two reasons:
1. To get a vendor-verified badge in their profiles for clients to see. The badge is a little extra credibility boost to further stoke confidence in clients when they're viewing profiles.
2. Vendor-verified service partners will be prioritized to receive project brief notifications ahead of our broader network of consultants.
3. Why not? It's free and requires only a little time to apply.
Question. What if I don't have enough experience or a certification, can I still apply?
Answer. Each technology vendor determines its own qualifying criteria, which means it is up to each technology vendor make a call regarding partner eligibility. It could be that an award-winning case study, backed up with an endorsement from a client is enough to get you in. Some vendors will,no doubt, be hard-nosed about requiring certifications or a minimum number of years of experience, etc.
Question. What's the point of Service Partner Hubs?
Answer. There are a few things that we've taken into account to build this part of the platform:
Quality & Trust
Although we interview all relevant service provider applicants, we know we can do better to ensure MeasureMatch clients are presented with an excellent range of high quality consultants and consultancies. Service Partner Hubs is a way to do that, with direct participation by technology vendors themselves.
The vast majority of the project work done via the MeasureMatch marketplace is systems-specific.Having the makers of these systems actively participating in the marketplace will help us to help you… and help clients to get the most of the software systems they've adopted.
Technology vendor participation is via a Vendor account, but packed with Client account functionality. So, in addition to creating Service Partner Hubs, technology vendors can also submit project briefs and book consultants into contracts, just like Clients can. Vendor accounts are built this way because we were told this would be useful. So, sooner than later, the first project briefs from technology vendors will emerge i.e. new revenue opportunities, and new ways to deepen technology vendor relationships.
And there's more. But we'll leave it at this for now.
We get this question a lot: “How does MeasureMatch work exactly?” It’s really as easy as 1, 2, 3, but in this quick post I’ll answer that question with three simple scenarios. I’ll post again soon with a visual that d...
