Intertainment Media Inc. subsidiary Ortsbo, Inc. has been chosen to enable global buyer-seller communication within the Grebids electronic bidding platform scheduled to launch in the summer of 2013. Ortsbo will enable buyers and sellers to communicate accurately about goods and services in real time across the language spectrum.
Ortsbo CEO Patrick Bultema commented, “We are proud to be chosen by an innovator like Grebids who is expanding the boundaries of global commerce. Enabling buyers and sellers to connect across languages expands the economic pie for everyone as barriers are reduced to profitable commerce and our companies both benefit in facilitating the exchange.”
There are millions of suppliers and buyers of green products and services globally and to date, many buyers and sellers have been separated by language barriers. When language is a barrier to commerce, goods often cannot find their way to the optimal buyer. Integrated into the Grebids exchange network, Ortsbo eliminates language as a structural barrier to the global exchange of goods and services.
Grebids founder Tom Tassiopoulos says, “We are pleased to have partnered with Ortsbo to deliver real time multilingual capabilities to our global network of users. Grebids Inc. is embracing Ortsbo’s capabilities and embedding its language technology in Grebids, a green electronic bidding platform that connects businesses, consumers and employers together in real-time with dedicated global green industry freelancers. Ortsbo’s language technology has enabled us to eliminate language barriers of entries and to build our business and chat platforms in markets that may otherwise not been possible.”
