The innovative digital project launched by SAE Comunicazione and led by Matteo Antonielli is 100% tailor made and based on e-commerce technology, for a reliable and intuitive business model.
The new competitive scenario configuring as a consequence of the Coronavirus emergency, clearly outlines the now unstoppable development of digitalization. However, this factor must go hand in hand with the social nature of human relations, which is an important part of market dynamics. This is the basis for REI, the technology developed by the SAE Communication agency, to enhance the offer of B2B events, expanding it beyond its physical and temporal boundaries.
Thanks to an innovative technology widely tested in various areas of development such as fashion, design and lifestyle, REI gives the possibility to active partners to be online in less than a month. A strategic timing in order to not compromise the next spring-summer 2021 season and to develop a simple and reliable digital business model.
The innovative project, launched in 2018 by the young manager of the Matteo Antonielli group, was immediately selected by important international trade fairs, as well as by showrooms and brands.
The initial experiments provided the basis for subsequent and continuous implementations and improvements to make the transition between the moment of the physical and digital encounter as fluid and immediate as possible. The aim is to support B2B from the time of the first product search to the end of the sales campaign, targeting the evaluation of possible new suppliers to be taken into consideration for subsequent purchases.
REI today responds promptly to multiple needs, with effective tools that give continuity to
the meeting between supply and demand, multiplying business opportunities. Among them:
- Customization: the platform can be modulated according to the specific needs of the exhibition organizer or the distributor and the graphic interface can be customized with the company brand image, strengthening its identity;
- Access: all information available at any time and not limited to the meeting. The technology is installed on a domain and server space dedicated to the customer, ensuring autonomy and security;
- Anonymity: buyers consult products without being identified
- Confidentiality: exhibitors have access solely and exclusively to their own dedicated area
- Efficiency: conceived as an e-commerce, the platform allows you to search for products and exhibitors using all the most important filters for the reference category
- Ease: the design is intuitive and easy to use
- Analysis: exhibitors have the opportunity to profile and analyse visits obtaining important information for product development
Effective tools that give continuity to the meeting between supply and demand by multiplying the opportunities of business, completing and enriching the moment of the physical meeting.
