Business-to-business apps tend not to get the plaudits that consumer products and services do, which is a shame. There is innovation happening in the B2B space that can have far-reaching implications.
Take MyiTalent, which launches today from iTalent Corporation — a digital transformation services company founded in 2005 that provides tools, resources, and consultants.
MyiTalent is an iOS app that takes all of the predominantly manual processes and procedures associated with acquiring project and business consultants and puts them in an app that is as easy to use as Uber. I use Uber as the parallel here because calling this the “Tinder of consultant matching apps” doesn’t sit right. There’s no “swipe right,” for starters.
While the app is designed to provide iTalent’s enterprise customers access to its array of consultants — note that this is not a “sharing economy” solution that allows for any consultant to sign up for placement — it has broader implications. Why? Because consultant placement is still stuck in the past, and in a world where the smartphone is never more than three feet away from the average person, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, it is time for that to change.
