Get more submissions

Take advantage of unlimited posting to tens of thousands of suppliers who review the daily bid releases. We automatically notify relevant suppliers for you and send reminders to suppliers when submission deadlines are getting close. Potential suppliers can access the bid documents that you publicly post for free. We can also help you find more suppliers under supplier-paid models. More bids encourages more competition and more competitive pricing. You can choose to share bid takers automatically to drive competitiveness or send invitations to preferred suppliers.
