REDWOOD CITY, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Pricelock, the most innovative platform for energy professionals to transact and connect, today announced that Pricelock Connect is quickly growing a community of engaged energy and commodity professionals. As a free community designed to transact, network and find jobs, Connect was launched in Preview mode last month to meet a market need for a transaction-based online community. Connect’s Preview milestones include:
- 500+ companies have already signed in
- Listings from 50 companies including those based in Mexico and Russia
- On average, over 150 views per listing
- Listings across a number of energy and commodity verticals including chemicals, natural gas, motor fuels, biofuels, power, RINs, RECs, coal and railcars
Connect is different than other networks because it is a community that starts and ends with transactions. Most networks and communities today are about connecting people. With Connect, you search based on products and services you need and our engine pinpoints listings and people that you should connect with. It is a simple and easy way to make transactions happen.
“We are already seeing listings from many commodity verticals such as energy, chemicals, weather forecasting, management consulting and more,” said Naveen Agarwal, CEO of Pricelock. “We believe that many of Connect’s benefits can translate across other types of businesses.”
Pricelock Connect is free and open to all energy and commodity professionals. To join, visit www.pricelock.com/connect.
