BarterQuest Presents Its New Technologies at IRTA Convention

BarterQuest will present its patented technology to facilitate C2C and scale B2B

NEW YORK, September 14, 2011 – BarterQuest (www.barterquest.com), a platform that supports the cashless exchange of goods, services and real estate, today announced that it has become a member of the International Reciprocal Trade Association (“IRTA”) and will present a seminar on its patented new technology at IRTA’s 32nd Annual International Convention. The Convention will be held from September 19th through 21st at the Aventura Spa Palace in Riviera Maya, Mexico. IRTA is a non-profit organization committed to promoting equitable standards of practice within the barter industry and other alternative capital systems.

At the seminar Dr. Paul Bocheck, as the person who has been responsible for its development, will describe BarterQuest’s proprietary technology and how it operates to overcome the obstacles inherent to barter. This technology includes a matching engine that instantly finds reciprocal two party and multi-party trades to solve for the “double coincidence of wants” (a trade requires parties who each wants what the other has) and a trading engine that allows trading partners to systematically negotiate and complete their trades. Further, a points system has been developed as an onsite currency to equalize trading values and provide trade credit to businesses.

“BarterQuest has been designed as an Internet platform which makes trading easier,” stated Dr. Paul Bocheck, a founder and the CEO of BarterQuest. “We believe that the various features of our site will promote C2C exchanges and at the same time provide the tools necessary for trade brokers to effectively scale their support of B2B exchanges. As the number of individual users continues to grow rapidly, we are increasingly focused on encouraging businesses to join the BarterQuest network to find the items they want and provide inventory for our consumers.”

BarterQuest Enhances Its Trading Platform for Businesses

NEW YORK, June 16, 2011 – BarterQuest (www.barterquest.com), a platform that supports the cashless exchange of goods, services and real estate, today announced that it has enhanced the design of its website to facilitate its use by businesses for business to business (B2B) and business to consumer (B2C) transactions. It has been customized to allow businesses easy access and execution. Any business that is not operating at full capacity can now use BarterQuest to increase its business and receive value for the goods or services that would otherwise go unsold. BarterQuest’s unique and secure points system (one point equals one dollar) provides businesses with the alternative to trade or sell their excess inventory and, by using points to equalize the value of the items being exchanged, make each opportunity for an exchange real and immediate. Businesses can form their own trading clubs on the site to select their trading partners and localize their transactions.  BarterQuest is focusing on businesses in the New York Metropolitan Area as it ramps up B2B.

“B2B barter is a large and well established market,” stated Dr. Paul Bocheck, the CEO of BarterQuest, “but until now was limited by old design and technology. By using our proprietary matching and trading engines, businesses can easily find and execute their trades without relying on a broker to bring them together. At the same time, we are the only site that not only introduces businesses with other businesses, but also provides businesses with a bridge to consumers as potential customers. Further, businesses are able to use points, our secure onsite currency, to supplement the value of the items offered for trade and, therefore, do not have to wait until they can find goods or services of equal value for an exchange. Moreover, points can be used by both consumers and businesses to purchase the goods or services which businesses are offering.”
