In our last two posts, Robin Salter of KWIPPED introduced us to the many benefits of an online marketplace for rental procurement. KWIPPED is one of the, if not the, first general purpose marketplace for your business rental needs. Launched in late February, KWIPPED is closing in on 100 suppliers that can meet your rental needs across 17 categories:
Like all modern online marketplaces, KWIPPED is simple and easy to use. All a buyer has to do is
- log on to the site
- fill out a request
- let the system direct it to the appropriate, verified, suppliers with potentially matching inventory
- wait for quotes
Once a quote to your liking has been received, you can accept it and check out on the site. The site then collects the first payment and seals the rental contract on your behalf. It’s that simple. And the next version coming late this quarter will allow you to check out commodity rental items on the spot – no RFQ needed. Quick and easy like rentals should be.
KWIPPED will do for rentals what sites like BuyTruckload.com did for truck rentals and turn the commercial rental industry on its head. It’s Rent-a-Center for business. Check it out!
