The Network is Coming!

According to a recent study conducted by Zippia in 2022, employees waste an average of 2.9 hours per work day or over 1/3 of their day. It can be assumed that a considerable amount of this time is dedicated to endlessly scrolling through Google, seeking answers to their queries. This is why we developed the Matium Network...

Welcome to the Matium Network

Last week, one of our valued Matium beta users reached out to us with an inquiry. They were looking for a reliable bulk trucking company in Arkansas. This is precisely why we created the Matium network - to connect companies that offer services or materials with those who are in need of them.

If you are receiving this newsletter... you or someone you know has probably been in a position like this. So reach out, and we will discuss getting your company a free public network profile.

Now back to the story...

If you were to do a quick Google search for "Bulk Trucking Arkansas," you would be bombarded with a staggering 63,500,000 results. Among them, you'll find sponsored listings and reviews, leaving you to navigate through this information overload just to find an email address or phone number for the right company (usually an email or a front desk number).

Fortunately, the Matium Network was designed to simplify this process for you. We provide a platform where you can easily filter through verified and recommended companies across all aspects of the material supply chain.

So for our user, we were able to manually provide them with an instant/verified answer for an Arkansas bulk trucking solution.

No more wasting time on endless searches or making countless phone calls. With Matium, you can now find exactly what you need in a matter of minutes. And the best part? Every company on our platform has been thoroughly vetted by our team or recommended by our trusted users.

Our vision is to create the interactive network of materials and services advancing the automation of supply chains. Within that vision, is the goal to reduce waste from your organizations day to day... scouring search engines for information is a huge waste.

Our Internal Network is Growing...

In the recent week, we have had the delightful opportunity to welcome three outstanding individuals to our advisory board. These exceptional advisors possess a vast array of knowledge and experience in their respective fields, making them invaluable assets to Matium. With their impressive backgrounds and extensive networks, they are poised to play a pivotal role in driving Matium's rapid growth as we approach our commercial launch.
