We find purchasing to be very tedious and inefficient. From sourcing the product to getting prices, the whole process just lacks an elegance that technology should have brought.
It’s a mission to get all those emails out to suppliers, to chase people for comprehensive quotes, and to present their responses in an organised way for authorisation.
Surely there must be an easier way?
In the great words of Barney Stintson, “Challenge accepted”.
After 2 years of geek brainstorming and months of development (and countless pots of coffee), we are very excited to introduce Openquotes — a way to tell the world you need something, to let them beat a path to your door while you need it and shut it when you’re done.
What makes it special?
It redefines the way you get quotes.
Quoting is all about having the right information at the right time.
But often we make decisions without enough information, being unaware of whether there were products or suppliers that were more innovative, more reliable or even more cost-effective.
You would only get as many quotes as suppliers you know about.
We believe that opening up the quote process will change all of this.
There’s less admin than ever
Our system is heavily focused on taking the hassle out of choosing suppliers, administering your quotes and quote responses and collating them all together in one place.
What about my suppliers?
Everyone’s welcome. Inviting new suppliers is as easy as typing in their email address and clicking invite. There’s no charge.
How much does it cost?
Where do you make your money?
We offer suppliers extra services that either get them more business or get through more business. For companies who do really big buying or selling, we also offer full integration.
Who we think should be using this
This is not just for the big corporates. Every company can benefit from better prices and more choice. We’d like you to try it.
