blur Project Space Optimizes s-commerce

s-commerce today gains further momentum as blur Group, operators of the Global Services Exchange at, announces that its newest application, Project Space is live.

Project Space is a completely integrated task and project management application that extends the functionality of blur’s cloud-based blur Trading platform, rounding out the s-commerce promise of services discovery, purchase, payment and delivery.

Starting seamlessly at the point of service provider selection, it triggers payments automatically at the point of final project delivery, providing an open, collaborative environment where all Exchange users can deliver s-commerce projects. It includes:

  • Project Timeline: a dynamic graphic representation of services-specific tasks and workflow with different views by user type
  • Task Management and File Sharing
  • Ability to invite outside collaborators
  • Automatic triggering of invoicing and payment management by key delivery milestones

This is the latest application to come out of blur Labs in London, following the launch last year of blur Trading 2.0 and the enhanced social technology for the expert service provider communities to interface directly into blur Trading.

blur Trading is entirely cloud-based and scalable to millions of briefs, users and service providers. It provides the world’s leading project brief app, services pitching, bid and win, project management and collaboration, payments, ratings and reviews.

Commenting on this latest application, Jon Hogg, Head of Platform at blur Group said: “blur Group is changing business. Project Space is the first application to fully optimize online project collaboration as the driver of delivery. It makes delivery faster, more streamlined and more open: underlining what many businesses are now discovering - that s-commerce is the future of services procurement.”

About blur (Group) plc at

blur owns and operates s-commerce exchanges where businesses in any country can buy, sell and pay for services like marketing, advertising, technology, legal and accounting. Businesses brief projects and expert service providers pitch for the project and the entire process runs online right through to project delivery and payment.

In early 2010, when the Exchange formally launched, just over three briefs per month were submitted. In Q4 2012 this had risen to around 80 per month from companies like Broadridge, Coral, Exceed, Fantasy World, Red Commerce, the Financial Times, Berlitz, Butlins, GE Healthcare and Tyco. Over the same time, average brief value has grown from approximately $1,500 in 2010 to an average of $16,050 in Q4 2012. Now more than 1,500 briefs have been submitted with a combined brief value of over $20 million, with these briefs coming from the US, UK, Europe, Africa and Asia.

Today, blur Group has approaching 25,000 experts, agencies and service provider firms in over 133 countries on eight crowd platforms who benefit from networking, peer advice as well as new business opportunities. All are reviewed and approved by the Group's Exchange Support executives before joining.
