“#4 Reputation Transfer – Marketing-Tool für die Sharing Economy
Vertrauen spielt auf Peer-to-Peer-Plattformen und im E-Commerce eine übergeordnete Rolle. Problematisch wird dies für Anbieter, die sich auf einer Plattform neu anmelden oder ihr Produkt über verschiedene Plattformen hinweg anbieten. Sie müssen Vertrauenswürdigkeit dokumentieren. So sind u. a. Hotels zumeist auf allen gängigen Plattformen wie Booking.com oder HRS vertreten, werden aber dort, wo gebucht wird, nirgends mit der Gesamtheit ihrer Bewertungen dargestellt. Reputation Transfer setzt genau an diesem Problem an und möchte helfen, Bewertungen Algorithmus-basiert auf die Metaebene zu heben. 5-Sterne-Rankings sollen plattformunabhängig sichtbar werden. Das Unternehmen wurde erst vor wenigen Monaten in London gegründet.”
Speaking at the “Instech London Partner Picks” event in November 2017”
Says Matthew Grant, Executive Director at Abernite:
“Reputation Transfer’s vision is to improve the way that personal ratings can be shared across different sharing platforms. You've got a great rating on AirBnB but no one wants to lend you their yacht? Turn to Reputation Transfer. The company is building its "equivalence" algorithm to join up all the platforms you've been rated on… It's a smart concept and builds on the idea that collaboration is better than domination, which looks to be the theme for 2018.”
