The Vortal Social_Apps project aims to further develop the existing B2B platform used by Vortal and incorporate new technologies and innovative features in the following areas:
•Making a B2B social Network as a foundation for business interaction among users of Vortal Platform.
•Exploiting users’ interactions in the B2B social network as a source of data for improving platform capabilities and users abilities.
•According to distinct factors regarding each user/company usage, user/company procurement performance, qualitative and quantive evaluation, etc, companies could be rated and its position in several features improved.
•Using semantic search techniques to improve search process by understanding users' intents and determining the information from e-catalogues.
•Enable developers to develop custom apps without any modifications to the core. This would enable third party developers to develop a variety of apps that can enhance user experience, and also provide specific features for niche customers.
