Our web site offers a free membership and free to use procurement sourcing service.
We work with approximately 2,500 distributors and manufacturers from around the globe. Most of the inventory you see on the site is in the physical possession of our supplier community.
Once you register and login to our site, you can request a quote either for a single part or for many parts. When you perform a search, you will see a link labeled "Request a quote for this part" or a button labeled "Send RFQ". When you click this link, it will add the corresponding part number to your pending RFQ's. You need only send one instance of your part number to the RFQ. Your sales representative will work to get you the best price and delivery based on the criteria sent.
Another way to send part information to your Pending RFQ's area is to enter a part number and quantity into the "Request a Quote" box on the lower right column of any page on the web site. This information will automatically add a line into your pending RFQ. At this point, the RFQ has NOT been sent to our sales team for sourcing. The parts have simply been entered into your "Pending RFQ" area. This allows you to add as many parts to the RFQ as you would like before sending the final RFQ to us. When you are ready to send the RFQ to your sales representative, click on the menu item on the upper left labeled "Pending RFQ's". Here you will have the ability to add target price and purchase timing to your RFQ, as well as remove any unwanted parts. Once you fill in the required information, click the button labeled "Submit RFQ Now", and you are done.
Once submitted, your personal sales representative will receive your request and you will hear back from them shortly. In the meantime, the RFQ information is available to you in the "Submitted RFQ's" area of the web site.
