Members provide details on what parts are needed or what resources they have available. The system then reaches out across all available listed parts and resources and matches the most compatible parts and resources together. When a resource is listed, the user's dashboard will show the parts that match it, and the user decides which of those to send RFQs to. If a resource part is listed, the member dashboard will show the parts that have requested an RFQ. Change your shop's view of complex jobs.
