A new company called ShelfLife has announced its intention to take advantage of the internet’s vast trove of information to streamline the process of opening and closing a business.
The company, founded by former investment banker Ben Shearman, will offer its clients a simple, streamlined, and intuitive way to take a financial investment and deliver it to completion within 24 hours.
Herbalife, a nutritional supplement company, has already begun using the internet to sell its products to consumers in the United States, and Shelflife aims to be even more transparent about its processes.
ShelfLive’s platform is meant to be an integrated system, offering customers access to multiple data sources to help them plan and deliver their business.
With this streamlined approach, customers will be able to access their financial information faster, better, and more efficiently.
The platform is being developed by Shelf Life’s head of customer service and data science, Paul Jaffe.
He told me: “Our goal is to be the most accessible, seamless, and efficient way to open a business in the world.”
What it will take to get there?
Shelf life says that by launching today, it will be one of the first businesses to use its platform, which will initially include its own proprietary data management system.
That will allow it to monitor and analyze customer data, and will help determine which data sets are most valuable for its business.
Customers will be encouraged to add their own data points to the platform to make it even easier to see how they are doing.
Sheld is looking to be a pioneer in the space, and hopes to be able be in the same business in five years.
She said that in order to launch, it needs a minimum of $50 million in funding.
But Shelf Lives is already a leader in the sector, having raised more than $2 million through a seed round earlier this year.
What will the company do with all that money?
She said: “We are going to invest a lot of time and money into making the platform easy to use, easy to understand, and we are going for a user experience that’s as intuitive as possible.”
She said Shelf’s platform will include a wealth of tools to help customers manage their investments and deliver on their promises.
The most important tools will be Shelf Lite, an online platform that allows customers to track the money they’ve invested in Shelf, and have it automatically tracked to their accounts when they finish a purchase.
The other tools include Shelf Rewards, a loyalty program that rewards customers who buy Shelf products at their local Shelf location.
She explained that Shelf is also working with banks to offer Shelf rewards to their customers, and that banks will be launching Shelf loyalty programs to be available through their own channels.
She also said that the company will be working with local governments and state regulators to make its platform as seamless as possible for their residents.
What are some other financial services that have already used the internet for some sort of transparency?
A lot of services have been working with the internet in order, from crowdfunding campaigns, to personal finance websites, to credit card processors, to insurance companies.
Sheltals website is a perfect example.
It allows customers a simple interface to view the financial information of the businesses they are interested in.
This data is also easily accessible in real time via a mobile app.
And the platform will even allow customers to make changes to their investment or closing, and receive notifications when they have.
Sheely said that this type of service is important because of the impact that the internet has on businesses.
It has helped many businesses to build up large portfolios, to open their doors to more customers and employees, and to make sure that the people who work for them are making good decisions.
The idea is to create a platform that will allow businesses to grow in a transparent way, Sheeley said.
What is Shelf?
Sheeleys business plan has a simple premise: the goal is for Shelf to help people take control of their finances, and give them a more accurate and consistent view of their financial health.
The plan goes on to say that Sheilah will help people save for retirement, and get the money into their retirement savings account, so that they can invest in more of their business in a more stable and secure manner.
This could mean a return to traditional investment, like mutual funds.
She told me that she hopes that by offering transparency and simplifying the process, Shelf will be a huge success for people.
The business is currently in beta, and plans to roll out the platform in the first half of next year.
She added: “Shelf is the best place to start to get started with Shelf and build a business.”
