Top tips for saving time with Matsource
Matsource has been designed to help you save time when sourcing materials, cutting out the hard work and enabling you to focus your attention elsewhere.
When you enter a request for materials, your requirements will be shared with all of the relevant suppliers that deliver to your designated address – and because you can see their responses in real time, there’s no need to wait once you’ve seen a quote you’re happy with.
You can also speed up the process by optimising your use of Matsource – here are a few top tips:
Put multiple materials in one request
When you enter a request, you can add as many materials or material variants as you need. Suppliers aren’t obliged to fulfil your whole request, and you can accept quotes for individual elements of your request. So, don’t waste time entering numerous requests – you’ll receive the same quality of quotes from one extensive request.
Choose a quote return deadline
You can indicate a deadline for suppliers to respond to your request, and doing so may result in quicker quotes. You’re not obliged to wait until your deadline, though, and if you receive a quote you’re happy with beforehand – go ahead!
Keep an eye on your notifications
Matsource is an automated, ‘always on’ platform, and you’ll receive a notification as soon as a supplier provides you with a quote. So, keep an eye on your email inbox and you can progress your order as soon as you receive a suitable quote. Remember, suppliers’ opening hours will vary, so you could receive quotes outside of normal working hours.
Choose suppliers that can ship quickly
When comparing quotes, you can sort by delivery speed as well as cost. So, if time is of the essence, you can choose to work with a supplier that promises rapid delivery – enabling you to quote and process jobs more effectively.
