Traditional ecommerce is a supplier-driven offer of goods and services for sale. Buyers have little bargaining power and even less input into the features offered.
Conversely, large organizational buyers usually have the knowledge and resources to specify their exact requirements and the volume to motivate sellers to compete for their RFQs and RFPs.
However, the overwhelming scale of leading technology suppliers gives them decisive negotiating power over the procurement groups of even the largest multinationals.
ProcessGuru, Inc. has developed a patent pending cloud application that empowers buyers to combine their purchasing knowledge, experience and volume to augment their negotiating position.
