The launch of WikiBusiness in association with Wikipedia on January 7, 2014, gave a completely new dimension to the digital information available for businesses, professionals and companies. Using the Wiki framework of crowd sourced aggregated and verified information, this is by far the most credible encyclopedia for businesses all over the world, says WikiBusiness Corp.

Its association with Wikipedia brings it the credibility as "the world's biggest and most reputable knowledge source for businesses."

In a recent article by PricewaterhouseCoopers entitled "Trust but verify: From transparency to competitive advantage," the authors describe the importance of transparency for companies in gaining a competitive advantage in today's business environment. The article states that verification by a well-regarded independent third party is key to increasing transparency and thus gaining trust from customers.

Another article by the Harvard Business Review from May-June 2012 also mentions the fact that transparency and trust in a company or professional have become increasingly difficult to achieve in the era of services, where customers lack sources to verify the quality of the services they are buying.

According to a November 13, 2008 article from the Wall Street Journal, survey of 358 senior executives and directors at 53 publicly traded companies revealed at least seven instances of false claims that individuals had received academic degrees that they, in fact, did not. One of the most popular cases in 2013 was that of Yahoo! CEO Scott Thompson who resigned in the wake of row over 'fake' degree as the board gave into a raft of complaints which included a discrepancy in the internet boss's CV.

By offering an independent third party platform where information provided by companies and professionals is verified, WikiBusiness fills the gap and helps businesses, professionals and customers to make the most out of their purchasing decision.

WikiBusiness has opened a new horizon for creating and verifying business and professional profiles online by using the crowd sourced edit function (Wiki style) and using unique auto-fill functionality from existing web presence.
