My Requests: Purchasing Made Easy
After the launch, we were humbled to hear from so many of you! It's been great to confirm that helping you find reliable suppliers for everything you need in one place really does help your small business.
Next up, watch out for tons of new features! For starters we want to make quotes from suppliers even easier to compare, launch product catalogs that help you find the right products and suppliers quickly and support simple re-ordering. Each step is going to benefit your business.
Step 1: Easier Quote Comparisons
We’re building better quote comparisons to save you time and make it easy to compare exactly what you’re getting from each supplier. You'll be able to see important details about your quotes such as: price, product information, specifications and shipping lead times at a glance.
Throughout the year we’ll be adding more product information such as high resolution photos, country of origin data and order quantity details. You'll be able to sort quotes and products based on the factors that matter most to your business.
Step 2: Informative, Beautiful Product Catalogs
As the Summer heats up so will your product browsing experience on Kinnek! We're re-designing supplier product catalogs on the site including superb searching. Whether you want to see what your local suppliers have to offer, who distributes a specific product, hot products by industry or look at all the inventory your key suppliers offer, it'll all be on Kinnek catalogs.
Step 3: Super Supplier Profiles
Many customers have told us about the importance of establishing good supplier relationships. That's why we're giving supplier profiles on Kinnek a fresh lick of paint, including more detailed company information and customer reviews.
Many of the supplier community are small businesses themselves who understand the challenges small business owners face. We think you deserve to know when they go the extra mile.
With that in mind, new supplier profiles will shine a spotlight on where each supplier can provide great expertise.
Step 4: Powering Up Payments
We're making it easy for you to effortlessly close out your purchases once you've found the right products and suppliers. Pay and manage all your purchasing invoices simply and quickly. Need to re-order? You'll be able to do that through Kinnek too.
