Depew, NY — In today’s fast-paced business environment, facilities management and supply chain professionals must be able to work efficiently to find the exact products and services they need and be able to qualify suppliers that provide those products and services. In response, ThomasNet.com® recently added content, tools, and powerful new technologies to help these buyers. During the Facilities Management Expo on November 7th in Depew, New York, the ThomasNet.com team will show participants how to leverage all resources on this free platform, including creating shortlists and meeting supplier diversity requirements.
ThomasNet.com is a supplier discovery and product sourcing platform for professionals who source maintenance, repair and operations (MRO), original equipment manufacturer (OEM), and other products and services for their industrial, manufacturing, commercial and institutional businesses. The hallmark of the platform is the database of 610,000 suppliers with multi-page, information-packed company profiles. Whether they’re searching for minority-owned, small, or disadvantaged businesses, ISO certified custom manufacturers, or nearby distributors, the site includes new content and functionality to improve supplier evaluation, short listing and selection. Buyers can also use new smart Request for Information (RFI) forms to advance the procurement process.
In addition, the platform offers a groundbreaking Product Sourcing Application which combines semantic search with a unique product taxonomy, enabling buyers to find line item detail on more than 100 million parts. Raw materials, components, and finished products can be easily sourced by attribute, specific keyword or part number.
ThomasNet.com is pleased to be exhibiting at this one day event at the Hearthstone Manor, 333 Dick Road in Depew, New York.
