“Our country is going through change and turmoil. People are divided on issues and stressed by the pandemic. Yet so much unites us and makes us proud and grateful. The goods and services on our site and the people and companies who manufacture and sell those are a reminder of that.”

Supplyshark is putting out the call to suppliers who want a new way to connect with the right buyers. Yet, the development team behind the new online platform says that the site not only provides a new means of improving users’ supply chains, it is a place that showcases what makes America strong. Something that they say is more important now than ever.
“Our country is going through a great deal of change and turmoil right now and people are divided on a number of issues and stressed by the pandemic. Yet we have so much that unites us and so much to be proud of and grateful for. We don’t want people to forget that. The goods and services on our site and the people and companies who manufacture and sell those are a reminder of that,” said Megan Johnston, co-founder, Supplyshark.
Supplyshark was founded earlier this year by a group of experts from the supply side of the distribution sector in response to the supply chain disruption caused by COVID-19. The site has been helping commercial sellers with too much product on hand or sellers with nowhere to turn for the products and services they count on to find short- and long-term resources. Suppliers are being actively sought to expand the site’s offerings with a free 90-day subscription now available to encourage them to try it out.
Johnston said Supplyshark is unique in that it is subscription-based and does not facilitate payments and pricing between suppliers and buyers. Buyers browse product and service listings and contact suppliers directly. A project clipboard allows users to set up projects, find needed products or services, determine quantities, store supplier information, and manage the associated budget. Buyers can likewise post what they are looking for and suppliers can respond on the Supplyshark Opportunity Board. The site even has a Forum where users can interact with others in their industry to share finds, seek help with projects, and get and give advice.
The platform is a relevant tool for any industry, however Supplyshark has seen particular interest from organizations in the agriculture, farm, healthcare, manufacturing, distribution, wholesale, machinery, transport, and materials industries.
“We love uniting buyers and sellers as they are instrumental in keeping our economy healthy and we hope more and more suppliers will try us out as we truly want to be a conduit to a more profitable business,” Johnston added.
