Joe is the purchasing manager for a hotel. The hotel that he works at is in need of some new dining chairs. Joe works with an interior designer to select a chair and fabric for their restaurant. With a budget in mind and the specification information in hand, Joe visits the Bid Harvest website, creates his project, uploads the chair specification, sets the product category and selects the city and/or country that he wishes to source from. After setting the budget and the delivery date, Joe broadcasts his inquiry to all the suppliers that fall within his search parameters.
After broadcasting his inquiry, Joe uses his dashboard to monitor statistics that allow him to see the number of suppliers that have been invited to submit a quotation, the number that have viewed the inquiry, bid on the inquiry or declined to quote.
Once the inquiry deadline passes, Joe uses his Bid Harvest project page to view an unlimited number of prices received. When he finds an attractive price and a good score, he reviews company data, gains access to reference info and reviews and chooses one or more suppliers to connect with.
Bid Harvest is free for buyers who choose to view the details of up to 5 suppliers. For a list of features and prices, see below:
For each inquiry broadcast through the system, a buyer get 5 view credits to unlock Supplier Profiles. 1 View Credit = 1 Supplier Profile.
