Whether your organization has not yet set up an integration with Fairmarkit, or you just want to put out a request for information, a manual RFQ is quick and easy to create and send to suppliers.
Use the Request Quotes button in the upper right or the Add Request for Quotes tab on the left-hand menu to create a Draft RFQ.
Fill out the Title for the RFQ that will be visible to the suppliers.
Fill out the Description, UOM, and Quantity for each item and/or service needed.
Additional line level information can be optionally added by clicking the Down Arrow at the end of each line.
There is no limit to the number of items and/or services that can be requested on a single RFQ, but please ensure that all items and/or services on a single request are related.
All other fields are optional, but the more information you can provide to your suppliers, the better.
Fairmarkit automatically identifies suppliers that can complete your request as you enter information into the Request Items section.
Click the green Refresh Suppliers button to populate the recommended Suppliers.
The Add Suppliers button will allow you to search your existing suppliers or create and invite a new supplier.
When searching for existing suppliers, you can search by Title, Email, Group, Tag, or Business Classification.
Then mark the checkbox next to any suppliers you would like to invite and click Add.
Add any Notes or Files to the request that the supplier should see.
Click Save and Send to email the RFQ to all selected suppliers.
Now that the RFQ has been sent to all the suppliers, you can simply wait until the RFQ closes to review the bids you've received and award.
