Just want to put some feelers out there and receive some feedback. I am doing research into creating a ratemyprofessor / apartment ratings like website for suppliers. I currently work in supply chain and see an opportunity here as we often wait for suppliers to approach us. As someone who has an initiative to reduce lead-time and costs annually as many other people due, what are thoughts on a website that would rate suppliers on quality, cost, leadtime efficiency, reliability, and would you use this supplier again options? I understand it can often be a friends of a friends business, but working in a fortune 500 companies business shows me theirs an ability to ease my life and others by providing an intermediary service. I know that the challanges I would face include getting people to actually rate suppliers, cost of establishing databases for the millions of the suppliers out there, code, but I feel this is a huge market that could be tapped. Any feedback is appreciated either in the thread or in PM's.
