Dialog Tradenet is a dynamic and multi – pronged trade information platform that integrates multiple technologies including Web, Wireless Access Protocol (WAP), Unstructured Supplementary Service Data (USSD), Short Message Service (SMS) and Voice as channels to reach varying target segments seeking to trade goods and services through their mobile phones.Conceived in the form of a virtual marketplace, Tradenet brings together buyers and sellers, along with providing reference prices on demand. It collects, organizes and disseminates information pertaining to products and services across a range of parameters including price, quantity, category, geographical location, etc to buyers and sellers across all segments of the social strata.Conceptualized as a solution to eliminate information irregularity in the market, especially for communities at the bottom of the socio- economic pyramid, the Tradenet platform has developed a sound system of grading which ensures the reliability of the information available.
