Here at CommsTrader, we never sit still. We’re always updating our features and services to give you a more immersive experience in the Comms world. That’s why we’re introducing a brand-new social networking platform called “CommsTrader HUB“, which is underpinned by a community forum where you’ll be able to chat and with vendors, channel partners, sys admins, buyers and end users.
HUB is a forum-based social platform that feels and acts a lot like Facebook. We’re powering it through the highly popular BuddyPress software, to give you an online experience that’s seamlessly comfortable and familiar. Within the social platform, you’ll be able to interact with other users, message people directly, like stuff and follow your favourite CommsTrader members too!

What You Can Expect with HUB
To get started with HUB, you’ll need to begin by registering with CommsTrader – don’t worry, it only takes a few seconds to sign up. Once you have your account, you’ll gain complete access to all the exclusive areas we have on the CommsTrader site, reserved for members only! On top of that, you’ll be able to fill out your profile and start enjoying all the interactions that HUB has to offer, including:
- Problem-solving forums
- Membership networking
- Joining and creating groups
- Sharing information and insights
To get the most out of everything that HUB can offer, we recommend that you take a few minutes to fully setup your account. It’ll make it easier to network with other people in the unified comms community, and ensure that you have a better chance of other members following you too.
Our CommsTrader HUB forums include:
- Trending Topics: Where you can explore all the mysteries of UC by topic or area, share your expertise, and ask the experts all your most pressing questions
- Vendor Vault: Where you can talk about specific products, services, or vendors
Remember, if you see any unanswered questions, you can help to make HUB a more informative place by sharing forum pages to your social networks, like Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn!
Powered by BuddyPress
We’ve designed CommsTrader HUB on BuddyPress, the highly-renowned WordPress plugin. Basically, BuddyPress allows us to create a simple and effective social networking system that acts and feels a bit like Facebook. That means that you’ll be able to create your own unique profile, send instant messages to other users, and get involved in various groups.
Thanks to the BuddyPress format, you can befriend other people in HUB, which means that you can instantly begin to create your own network of communications specialists and unified comms experts. Companies can create their own groups, or you can design a group based on your interests. Users can even follow activity streams that provide a quick insight into whatever’s going on with a user or forum page.
Your CommsTrader Community
We like to think of CommsTrader as a place where like-minded technology experts and enthusiasts can come together and discuss the past, present, and future of Comms. Our new HUB social engagement platform is our way of giving you a fantastic new way to interact with other people in your CommsTrader community.
Since we’re always happy to get feedback, please do reach out if you have an idea for how we can make the forum more appealing to everyone. What’s more, if you think you’d make a good moderator, we’re currently on the hunt for people who can help us to grow HUB and keep it relevant, so please, get in touch!
