February 8, 2018

MARIETTA, GA – February 8, 2018 –, the premier destination for Buyer and Supplier discovery, announces the access of the Supplier Discovery Guide to all Buyers. Previously, access to the guide required the assistance of a Buyer’s dedicated Sourcing Advisor. Now, Buyers are able to access the guide and take advantage of its wealth of information as they see fit. The opened Supplier Discovery Guide allows Buyers to more easily find the right Suppliers for their custom parts with or without completed engineered documentation. This directory allows Buyers to obtain engineering and design Suppliers in order to obtain a manufacturer to handle the design and manufacturing phase of their need.

Buyers will find a wealth of features to take advantage of in the newly unlocked Supplier Discovery Guide:

  • Search for specialty shops that carry components for their standard part requests (standard washers, bolts, etc.)
  • Access to view Supplier profiles, ratings, capabilities and company description prior to posting an RFQ
  • Create a Supplier group based on manufacturing categories frequently outsourced
  • Mass email Suppliers from the guide to the Buyer’s account address book
  • Locate certain Suppliers within the marketplace as well as Suppliers that have certain certifications or classifications based on a current need (ISO-9001, AS9100, Mil Spec, etc.)
  • Option to reach Suppliers by phone and internal messaging system

Kevin Witherspoon, Senior Sourcing Advisor states, “Opening access of the Supplier Discovery Guide better enables us to live up to our mission of making it easy for Buyers and Suppliers to discover each other. Buyers will be able to more quickly and efficiently find the exact Suppliers they need for their custom manufactured parts”.

While this has many benefits for Buyers, Suppliers will also reap the benefits of opening access to the Supplier Discovery Guide. They will now be able to save time by focusing and quoting on RFQs that are tailored more specifically to their capabilities, allowing for better discovery of the Buyers they need.
