Metal Networks realized that AI and machine learning would change the way we work with large volumes of data and transactions - a key challenge for a volume-intensive industry. We then developed JAQI, the metal industry’s first search engine using machine learning technology that translates Buyer nomenclatures (shorthand) for describing products and matches them with a Seller’s catalogue, thereby significantly reducing the time required to search for the right product.Leveraging its JAQI search engine technology, the company embarked on solving another industry challenge - enabling Distributors & Service Centers to save time finding the right product to fulfill buyouts from other distributors and dispose overstocked products. Hence our latest venture to create a 100% channel-centric Distributor-to-Distributor (D2D) marketplace called Buyout Marketplace. Our purpose-built and modularized technology solutions for the metals industry uses that latest cloud-based SaaS model to deliver cost-effective products to both small and large sized metals distributors, service centers, and mills.
To enable metals distributors, service centers, mills, and traders with machine learning technology that removes the friction of buying and selling metals.
To create a faster and connected channel-centric metals procurement experience.
