The experience of our clients is the best reference for what BuyMetrics can do for your business. In their words, BuyMetrics helps them:
“9 out of 10 times, some of the small mills don't have what I need. Before BuyMetrics, I just didn't have time for them – I simply dropped them from my call list.
Now, everyone gets to see what I need, and that 1 out of 10 times one of the small mills has the lowest price, they get my order. It's a win-win for them and for us.”
Chris Ratliff, Buyer, Universal Forest Products
“It used to take me hours just to call and play phone tag with 5 or 6 suppliers.
Now, I send the BuyMetrics request out to 20 mills – in minutes, responses start coming in, and how quickly they come tells me a lot about what's going on in the market. When I get a lot of responses back and everyone has product, I know I'm in a position to get a great price.”

“One of my wholesalers actually leveled with me – he told me I am buying much better than some of my competitors – he was really surprised he had lost the business when I got even better prices than he could come up with.
I knew I was shopping more extensively with BuyMetrics, but it was interesting to hear this from a supplier.”

“Instead of wasting time on specs or quantities, we can focus our time on the phone on the things that matter without feeling rushed. When we call our suppliers, we get the real scoop from them on what's going on in the market, and we can focus most of our time on the relationship.”

“As a supplier, I really like BuyMetrics. It saves me time, allows me to work the quote offline before getting back to my client, and it lets me spend time on the phone solving issues and better understanding what they need.
That said, I think it's great for the large guys, who are going to shop around anyway, but I would rather it didn't get out to some of my loyal small guys to use it.”
