What is the best method for suppliers to contact you?

We will be putting suppliers in contact with you directly so they can quote your project. Some suppliers may have questions so they can quote you correctly. Additionally, most suppliers usually like to follow up to see how they got on and all we ask is that you provide them with feedback, whether they have won the project or not. With this in mind what is the best method to reach you on (you can choose both)?

"Qimtek provides a professional and friendly service, helping to source alternative suppliers in various aspects of work. This service has helped the supply chain within our procurement process."

Technical Buyer at Isotech Technology Ltd

"What initially drew me to use Qimtek’s sourcing service was the vast array of potential suppliers that are available. I have since formed a close working relationship with one of the members I found and now provide them work directly. Give it a try. Qimtek saves you both time and money, so why wouldn’t you?"

Managing Director for Applied Automation Ltd

"We have always found Qimtek to be a really useful option when it comes to sourcing a new part for a great price, with great quality. Qimtek always helps me out loads and saves a big chunk of time. A+++++."

Purchasing Manager at ETL Fluid Experts Ltd

Key questions from other manufacturing buyers:

 
How does it work?

Qimtek's sourcing service is designed to take the headache out of finding new engineering suppliers, making it a really simple way of sourcing for your subcontract projects. Simply upload your drawings using our online Drag, Drop, Source! service, or email them to sourcing@qimtek.co.uk. Our sourcing account managers will then review your drawings and ensure that we have all the information we need, before compiling your project and sending it to relevant suppliers. From there, suppliers will contact you directly with their quote. The relationship is always kept directly between the buyer and supplier - we simply put you in touch with subcontract suppliers who can assist, saving you the time and hassle of contacting multiple companies individually.

Why is the sourcing service free?

Qimtek is supplier-funded, meaning that there is absolutely no cost to use our sourcing service. Our supplier members pay a flat monthly subscription fee to receive and quote for projects - we never charge manufacturing buyers for finding them new suppliers, nor do we take commission from either side on projects that have been awarded to our members.

My project is sensitive...

Not a problem! Qimtek is a closed network and our members are forbidden from sharing information with third parties by our terms & conditions. However, if you need a bit of extra security, we can attach a non-disclosure agreement to your project, which members will have to sign and return before gaining access to the drawings. We can accommodate your company's own non-disclosure agreement, or Qimtek has a standard NDA which can be used if you prefer. 

Do the quotes come directly back to us?

Yes! Your contact details will appear on your project so that suppliers can submit their quotes to you directly. This allows you to get an impression of the suppliers firsthand before placing your business. We will also specify on the project how you prefer to be contacted, whether by email or telephone.

My project is urgent, how quickly can we expect quotes?

Most of the projects published through our network receive quotes the same day - however, this can vary depending on the process, material and approvals you require. Non-disclosure agreements can also slow the response rate slightly. We always recommend giving suppliers at least a week to quote so that you can thoroughly benchmark the responses you receive. If you decide to move forward with a supplier within that time, then no problem - you can simply close the project through your online account.
