Why go global with Global Catalog?

We live in challenging times (to say the least). First, the COVID-19 pandemic, and now the war in Ukraine have profoundly disrupted global supply chains – perhaps permanently. Arguably, the global economy has never experienced anything like this – certainly not in such a short period of time. In early 2020, manufacturers, and suppliers of products began to find themselves hamstrung by shortages of raw materials, and key manufacturing components, as their once reliable partners faltered, or failed, amid worldwide public health, and transportation restrictions.

Just as there appeared to be some relief from the pandemic on the horizon, the war in Ukraine, and its underlying economic warfare (trade sanctions) – a problem that continues to escalate throughout the world economy - has now prohibitively shut off many historic supply chains. Closed air spaces have rendered otherwise still-viable supply chains, uneconomical, or impose time delays that make it impossible for producers to meet I.S.O. 9000 standards (among others), to which they are bound.

The pandemic, and what is increasingly becoming an economic “world war” produced by the conflict in Ukraine, has simply shone light on a long-standing problem: our global trading systems have been far too vulnerable, for far too long, and are overdue for a serious redesign. The simple problem is that there has long been an over-reliance among businesses on singular, or narrowly-distributed source suppliers, often with vulnerable transportation, and communications linkages. This can easily produce chaos, or collapse, when a challenge arises, be it related to public health (like the COVID-19 pandemic), politics (like the war in Ukraine), weather, or natural disaster.

For reasons similar to the genesis of the internet itself – that is, resilience through decentralization, and redundant network distribution - businesses must move away from limited supply sources or "nodes", where a few broken nodes, or broken links between them can cause chaos, if not outright collapse.

Until now, the internet as we know it – i.e. the "civilian internet", or worldwide web - has largely been a retail-oriented world, dominated by familiar platforms like Amazon, E-bay, Facebook, Google, Yelp, and Shopify. Of course, these platforms have tremendous utility, but they overlook the strategic reasons for the genesis of the internet, in the first place, and consequently cannot offer the full strategic advantages of digital connectivity that commerce needs to be fleet of foot, and to survive, especially in unpredictable times like these.

We believe the key to ensuring success of global commerce - in almost any climate – no matter how challenging - lies in creating online business-to- business (B2B) networks that can offer:

  • Interconnected, and seamless flow of information between broadly-distributed networks of global buyers, and suppliers, without over-reliance.
  • Specialized AI, and machine learning capability, to enhance the efficiency and effectiveness of individual businesses.
  • And of course, Global reach!
