ROCHESTER, N.Y. /eNewsChannels/ — RFQ Resources announces an innovative price-monitoring site (www.rfqresources.com) where channel resellers can quickly extract street pricing for computer components. For the first time, B2B buyers and resellers can receive competitive pricing for components without expending hours in research and quotation requests. With one simple input, buyers can receive multiple bids from the industry’s top distributors, and track street prices across the country.
Mark Maio, co-founder of RFQ Resources, explains, “During my years working with channel resellers, I found recurring pricing data needs that no one was meeting. There was tremendous demand for reliable and real-time pricing intelligence, but channel customers didn’t have time to contact every distributor and couldn’t risk revealing their product requirements to all players. RFQ Resources meets those pricing needs easily, affordably, and anonymously.”
RFQ Resources is endorsed by NASBA – The Association of Channel Resellers (www.nasba.com). NASBA Executive Director Frank Raimondi adds, “Today’s buyers have just-in-time requirements in a volatile market, and at the same time, limited visibility to spot market pricing. The process of researching the market can be a very time consuming and bring unwanted exposure. In line with NASBA’s goals of providing empowering services for resellers, RFQ Resources offers an innovative way for Resellers to quickly and anonymously collect spot market pricing from Mainstream Distributors to meet their procurement goals.”
The RFQ Resources process was designed for ease-of-use. Buyers anonymously post their specific requirements while sellers respond with equally specific anonymous bids. A secure site is provided for identity exchange to efficiently facilitate deal closure, while prospective buyers capture real-time street price data regardless of actual purchasing activity.
The current lineup of Distributors includes ASI Computer Technologies, Avnet Embedded, Americas, a division of Avnet, Inc. (NYSE: AVT), Computech, SED International, and Synnex. Channel Customers pay just $19.98 per month for unlimited access to post RFQs and obtain real-time street pricing for their product requirements. There are no other fees.
