Matium Monday Vol. 8 - At our Core

At the Core of Matium is.... Matium Core

At the heart of our approach is Matium Core, designed to simplify operations for businesses dealing with raw materials. Consumers often take for granted the ease and simplicity of purchasing products online without considering the complexities involved in manufacturing those products. Matium is dedicated to serving those who create, acknowledging that while consumers enjoy a seamless shopping experience, the manufacturing sector often lags behind in technological advancements.

Matium Core serves as a comprehensive business platform, streamlining processes for manufacturing and raw material companies. Our platform addresses common challenges such as automated paperwork generation, one-click shipping for materials, and more, which are not as straightforward as consumers might think. Matium simplifies these tasks through automation, showcasing just a fraction of what Matium Core is capable of.

Built upon a unique material matchmaking algorithm, Matium Core optimizes transactions by matching specifications, pricing, and location, thus enhancing both business and supply chain efficiency. This includes a focus on profitability and environmental considerations. Matium facilitates the pairing of supply and demand with ease, transforming the entire raw material sales or procurement process into a few simple clicks.

For small and medium-sized businesses along the raw material supply chain, Matium can serve as a comprehensive system, integrating CRM, ERP, and TMS functionalities and seamlessly working with QuickBooks. For larger enterprises, Matium Core acts as a smart interface over complex ERPs, addressing the specific needs of the materials sector. Understanding the significance of material specifications is crucial, as they define the value and utility of the materials, far beyond basic descriptions.

Matium Core sits below the Network. Anything that happens on Matium Core is your data and for your eyes only! Come May, you will have the ability to sync to the Network and propose transactions with your connections BUT you control who gets shared what, at what price, and what details they see. We are not changing how you do business, simply making it easier for you!
