MFG.com, the world’s largest online manufacturing marketplace, announced the launch of their new RFQ form.
The form has been reformatted specifically with marketplace users in mind and alters the way we, the industry, view the quoting process.
The RFQ creation process is 5-times faster and even more intuitive for the Buyer. Buyers will find a more user-friendly, efficient experience, and Suppliers will find RFQs released quicker to the marketplace.
The change was motivated by MFG.com’s core mission statement to make it EASY for buyers and suppliers to discover each other. Andy Richardson, Vice President of Sales, states, “We’ve always seen ourselves as a progressive company.
MFG.com is always looking for new ways to enhance and streamline the customer experience for our buyers and suppliers. We’ve taken your feedback and came up with a great solution, the new RFQ creation process.”
Buyers will be able to find these new improvements when using the form:
• One ‘Create RFQ’ form for Single- or Multi-Line RFQs.
• SIMPLE as 1-2-3
• Error Reduction
• Ability to add parts to RFQs from multiple disciplines.
• Improved, cleaner design.
• Look-up and add parts more efficiently from the Parts Library.
• Drag-and-drop feature for adding attachments and prints.
• Edit NDAs during RFQ creation.
Kevin Witherspoon, Senior Sourcing Advisor, MFG.com, says, “The new RFQ process is cutting-edge and addresses the needs of the marketplace. By reducing the 5-step RFQ process to a 3-step process, the buyer experience is improved and shortens the time to market.”
The new RFQ form, launched in July of 2018, represents one more element in MFG.com’s ongoing effort to support continued ease of use of the platform. The updated form will further enable Buyers to reduce part cost, time to market, and Supplier risk on MFG.com.
