Why publishing a Request for Quotation?

How do you know that your existing vendors will provide you with the best solution against the best price? You don’t! Maybe it is your competitor that gets the best solution against the best price only because he/she has access to the right vendor.

You as a purchaser need access to all relevant vendors.

That’s the reason all those telecom events are so popular. There you hope to find the right account manager for your demands. But is this model sustainable? Travel budgets are getting smaller and smaller. Our schedule is tighter and tighter. The number of players on the market is increasing. New entrants and new technologies bring new and cheaper solutions.

TelcoPlace created the option to publish requests for quotation for free. The selling vendor pays a small fee. The RfQ’s are public, you as purchasing company are anonymous until you decide to accept a quote and start finalizing the SLA and contract with the quotee.
