Pursuite has been developed to act as a solution space for hospitality industry purchase. Its innovative procurement technology ushers in greater transparency in all purchase and sale transactions. The platform’s intelligent algorithm greatly simplifies the conventional processes of product discovery, quote request creation, quotation comparison, order placing and tracking and supply chain management for buyers.
For suppliers the platform eases cataloguing, lead generation, quote creation and tracking, payment tracking and order fulfilment. The platform also enables secure direct communication between buyers and suppliers for quick closure of deals. Moreover, the real-time dashboards give a snap-shot of the overall business status and assist buyers and suppliers in taking business decisions.
Pursuite offers free registration to both suppliers and buyers. Only at the time of sale will supplier need to give a small transaction fee to the platform for facilitating his business. However, buyers can enjoy the platform benefits free of cost. To negate potential fraudulent registrations on the platform an intelligent back-end tool has been developed to ensure swift verification process of buyers and suppliers.
