What does it mean when a platform is “end-to-end”? Are there any examples of platforms that are end-to-end? What can all this platform do to save you time, money, effort and your hard work?
In this post, let’s explore end-to-end platforms and find out what they can do for you.
end-to-end refers to a solution that guides users the entire way – a comprehensive experience encompassing all of the processes, resources and access a person needs to begin and end something.
End-to-end platforms basically group items that are commonly used together. It’s the same principle behind – say – a first-aid kit, which collates items like bandages, gauze and rubbing alcohol to get you from the Beginning Treating a scraped leg to the End.
Marketing tools, payment processing, and logistic solutions are all available to help people sell products online.
And in the last example, you have Nobul, which founder and CEO Regan McGee calls “the world’s first end-to-end technology platform for real estate transactions.” Nobul matches buyers/sellers with real estate agents based on user criteria, sends curated listings, allows buyers to book showings, allows sellers to complete free valuations, and more. According to McGee, the digital marketplace is “always adding cool, interesting functionalities to our platform including auxiliary services (insurance, mortgages, etc.).”
