    ShipyardXchange reaches 1000 requests

    News // September 27, 2002
    The shipyards using SYX (ShipyardXchange) have to date distributed 1000 requests for quotation through the e-procurement portal. At the same time they have awarded orders for almost 20 million to participating suppliers.

    Aker Brevik distributed the Request for Quotation (RFQ) number 1000 in July, reports SYX.

    "With 1000 RFQs through SYX, our e-procurement portal has reached yet another milestone. The 1,000 inquiries have been divided among 160 suppliers, demonstrating that the strategy to ensure a match between buyers and sellers, rather than signing up everybody under the sun, has worked very well," noted Petter Walle, Vice President, Sales & Marketing.
