WILLOW GROVE, Pennsylvania (PRWEB) November 14, 2005
WhyAbe.com, the free RFP tool, today announced the rollout of a location filtering feature that provides users of the site the ability to search for suppliers, or buyer listings based on a radius search of a zip code. When using the Find feature, buyers and researchers have the ability to type in a keyword for the product or service they are sourcing and can filter results based on distance from the entered zip code. Additionally, when creating an RFP listing, the automated supplier matching tool will give buyers the option to only invite suppliers located near their zip code. Suppliers are able to use the advanced search feature to find out if any buyers have listed public RFPs within their territories.
The video help button on the quoting page launches a flash presentation that walks suppliers through the quoting process of WhyAbe. Additional video help buttons included throughout the site provide in depth tutorials to assist users with the powerful functions of WhyAbe.
