“ is meant to be used by any co-workers’ community, or anyone belonging to any organization. All dealings are kept within this community. This is a community of real people who meet every day, not an online network of imaginary friends and contacts.
It brings trust, security and privacy in its nutshell, which is extremely important when buying or selling items.

Nothing can be more reliable than your co-workers community, and this is exactly why people turn to their colleagues first before going somewhere else (like local online or paper classifieds service, or global marketplaces (e.g. eBay, or similar)). They expect to see quickest results with their colleagues rather than anyone else, which is most of the time true.”
