    Inventory Directory

    Hello

    This is my first post on this site so lets see how it goes.


    I am interested in building a website that uses a questionnaire to match customers with products. I want the products that are listed both on the webite and items from other websites displayed. Is that possible? Is there a term for this type of website or type of algorithm? Something like BuyerZone ? Purchasing For Your Business, Made Easy.


    Thanks,


    Lance!

    Everything is do-able except maybe the "items from other websites". That starts getting into scraping other sites, which can be difficult. Some sites offer API's for querying data, and if so, that would be a way to go. In my opinion, getting data from other websites will be the hardest part.

    They're not linking customers with products on that site. They're generating leads for customers who require quotes on services and/or products.

    Lead generation website would be the closest term you'd find for it. It's not really an algorithm...it's a series of prearranged agreements to gather and send off quotes.
