Supplier Xchange™ dramatically speeds the price request process by connecting the distributor to their customers in real time. It provides a more efficient way of responding to the high volume of price and bid requests and it's free for subscribers.
The process is simple – a contractor electronically submits a list of items to you from their estimating program or from TRA-SER®. If you approve them, their list is instantly matched against a pricing file you will have submitted for that customer. Within seconds the list is returned to the contractor with their specific pricing, ready to apply within the bid or estimating program.
Because every RFQ will be electronically responded to in mere seconds, it saves both you and the contractor time, and reduces the likelihood that a slow response costs you a sale down the road. Supplier Xchange helps you have more time to devote to solidifying your relationship with customers.
You also have access to a set of administration tools that allow you visibility into your customers’ quoting activity so you can develop strategies to earn even more of their business.
