Business description: Ingenio, formerly, has developed the leading technology platform for enabling commerce-based information exchange. The Ingenio platform is proven and robust, powering over 1 million e-commerce minutes per week and more than 500,000 paid transactions per quarter for a wide range of individuals and businesses, including several Fortune 500 companies. The Ingenio platform is creating powerful ways for people to talk live via the Internet and telephone; these commerce connections are being utilized across individuals, groups, products and services. Initiated primarily from the Web, the Ingenio platform connects two people – a buyer and seller of live tax advice; an Internet Yellow Pages advertiser and a prospective client; a Microsoft products expert and a customer with an Office question – to an immediate or arranged metered telephone conversation which is private and secure. The conversation is initiated and occurs over the Ingenio platform, so no phone numbers, identity or credit cards are exchanged between the two individuals.
