Swipe Right on Business Relationships Technology


No one is flying around the country to meet with clients. We can’t wine and dine potential customers or even connect with our peers at events and conferences.

Covid-19 has made the old ways of forming business relationships pretty much impossible. And while some of these “old ways” might have already been on the way out pre-pandemic, Covid-19 has accelerated their departure.

This change in the way that businesses connect with one another, their clients and their potential customers has opened the door for innovation. New solutions are reimagining how to build business relationships when in-person connections are impossible (or just too inefficient). These tools leverage technology to modernize how companies meet, engage and connect with potential clients, vendors and partners.

Dev IQ has recently had a hand in creating three such solutions:

  • CMOmarketplace – a tool that modernizes the traditional in-person advertising agency vetting process with a marketplace that empowers organizations to search for, meet and evaluate potential creative partners online and on demand.
  • The Influence Board – a web platform that matches busy executives with vendors trying to reach them, solving the problem of cold calling through an online networking space.
  • Fuelsy– an online marketplace for buying and selling leads that allows sellers to post detailed information about their leads and includes a patent-pending algorithm that recommends a selling price.

We think that innovative solutions that bring human connection and business relationships online will continue to be relevant long after the pandemic is over. And economists agree:

“People will change their habits, and some of these habits will stick. There’s a lot of things where people are just slowly shifting, and this will accelerate that.”

If your organization is in the business relationships space that is looking to evolve its business model, let’s connect.

Dev IQ has a proven track record of helping companies move beyond the “old ways” and bringing innovative, reimagined business concepts to reality.

Let’s build something beautiful together.
