LONDON, June 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
European SME businesses waste up to £379 billion a year according to research from the Chartered Institute of Procurement, so-called maverick buying. Award winning start-up wegetquotes is on a crusade with its new service aiming to stamp out the widespread cash waste by changing the way businesses' buy.
Founder Steve Swan believes most businesses could save thousands using its free cloud-based quote service that enables anyone to ask the market and find the best prices for goods and services. 'Buying is a problem for many SMEs,' said Swan, 'large companies have dedicated buying departments, we are passionate about saving businesses a fortune by making smart buying available to everyone.'
Wegetquotes is a completely free service for buyers. Sellers can quote as often as they wish and only pay a small commission when they make a sale. Effectively wegetquotes becomes another sales channel, potentially very cost effective as the only cost is between 2% capped at 6% charge to sellers when they make a sale. Swan hopes that wegetquotes will result in smaller companies being able to extend their geographic salesreach and have a better chance of winning sales against larger competition.
With no barriers to entry for buyer or seller, Swan is convinced that virtually every business, large or small, can benefit from wegetquotes. The company has already fulfilled successful quotes ranging from knocking £1000 off the price of a new mini for one company, to saving over £1m on a consignment of car batteries for another buyer.
'With businesses closing every day we don't think any uncontrolled spending is acceptable. When businesses compete, the buyer gets the best price so we can guarantee the buyer access to the markets' best prices, on a given day' said Swan.

There is no charge to buyers, no limit to how often they use the service, nor a requirement to accept any quote. Sellers pay between 2% - 6% sales commission only when they make a sale
