Arlington, MA (PRWEB) February 23, 2009
Tradeloop Corporation, the largest business-to-business wholesale trading network of used computer equipment, today announced that it has unveiled a non-technical step-by-step Code of Business Practices and Ethics for its trading community to resolve disputes. The new guide, which can be found at http://www.tradeloop.com/ethics/process, is part of Tradeloop's continued efforts to promote ethical business practices and combat fraud within its community.
Last year Tradeloop became the first wholesale trading website to offer a blog-based procedure for dispute resolution system. The resolution system enables all interactions between the complainant, the defendant and the members of the Tradeloop Ethics Committee to occur interactively online.
"Our unique blog-based resolution solution provides our members with a fair, efficient process to resolve disputes," said Rohi Sukhia, President and CEO, Tradeloop Corporation. "In economic downturns like we are experiencing now - fraud generally rises. We created this new guide to ensure that our members had an orderly process for resolving complaints and combat fraud on our website. It is part of our continued effort to make our network a safe and secure place to do business."
"The Ethics Code is a great way to educate Tradeloop members about the resolution process," said Attorney Kristen Cichocki, Tradeloop's legal advisor. "I worked closely with Tradeloop's Ethics Committee to document the process that would be transparent for the networks' members, without a lot of legal jargon."
The Tradeloop Ethics Committee consists of Tradeloop wholesale member peers. This volunteer group of 15 individuals reviews all alleged violations and renders sanctions. The members of the Tradeloop Ethics Committee include: Luis Alberto Arias Conde, Arcon Ourense; Malcolm Mayberry, Atlantix Global Systems; Youngjin Kim, EJ Tech Solutions; Adrian Bowmer, European Hardware Solutions; Henrik Larsen, Fortis Lease Danmark A/S; Benjamin Ingwersen, Frontier Computer Corporation; Lou Germain, Function5 Technology; Joseph Mason, Integrity Global Solutions, LLC; Sherri Sheerr, Keystone Memory Group; Mark Hekimian, Macquarie Equipment Finance, LLC; Keith Moss, Open Integration; Christine Faris, Pacific Coast Integrated Systems; Joel Nimar, Pyramid Technology Services, Inc; Michael Loria, re.Source Partners; and Sean Rooks, West Coast Computer Exchange.
