<p>We often hear claims that the Internet, and the World Wide Web in particular, will revolutionize how we conduct business. We hear nearly as often that those claims are unfounded. Until recently, the skepticism has been warranted.</p> <p>One system that has begun to make good on the early predictions is the IndustryNet marketplace on the Web. IndustryNet provides several services for its users. It is</p> <p><li>a news service, </li> <li>an on-line trade journal that provides instant reader service information, </li> <li>a searchable archive of new product announcements,</li> <li>a searchable archive of design application cases, </li> <li>and a provider of interactive access to manufacturer and distributor information.</li></p> <p>In this article we outline the IndustryNet approach to conducting commerce on the Internet. We examine how IndustryNet is enhancing the relationship between buyers/specifiers, manufacturers, and distributors.</p>
