HONG KONG,  -- In September, Global Sources (NASDAQ: GSOL) plans to launch an innovative RFI (Request For Information) management system to help buyers and suppliers communicate more easily and close more orders.

Unlike other existing online messaging systems, the Global Sources system will allow users to communicate seamlessly from their own email accounts or through Global Sources' own online forms. Regardless of which communications means they choose, the system will capture and analyze incoming and outgoing communication to help users track the status of RFIs and follow up on specific sourcing projects.

"This represents a breakthrough in online sourcing communications between buyers and suppliers," said Spenser Au, Global Sources CEO. "Users will be able to access our system anywhere, anytime, on any device they choose to check on the status of RFIs. Suppliers can use the system's analytics to evaluate sales leads and focus on closing deals with the most serious buyers."

"In today's international trade marketplace, there is an overwhelming glut of often questionable information online," said Au. "The problem is how to filter and qualify the most reliable trade partner to work on a specific sourcing project. We have invested in this state-of-the-art system to improve the RFI communication process and further improve our reputation as the best platform for getting real business done."

The cloud-based messaging system was designed to meet detailed requirements of the Global Sources community of volume buyers around the world. Requirements were gathered from interviews with some of Global Sources' largest export clients.

Global Sources has also greatly increased the depth and breadth of supplier information on the GlobalSources.com website. "Our focus is not just on quantity, but on quality. We are committed to providing the most qualified selection of B2B exporters from China in the industries we serve," said Au. "We aim specifically to list all exporters who are included in Customs records, all suppliers who have undergone third-party audits, and all exhibitors from key export trade shows in Asia."
