India-based Global Metal Co. recently launched a solution to help bulk buyers to print instant quotations for builder hardware products, according to company officials. The online tool, available on the company’s website, generates instant quotations based on the criteria set by the buyers on a real time basis. The algorithm automatically calculates the product price based on parameters chosen by the buyer, said a statement from the company.

The online pricing module helps solve the problems of delay faced by buyers, especially wholesalers, distributors, retailers and anyone who requires an idea about the cost of getting a new product manufactured. The online feature allows buyers to print instant quotations with rates on FOB and CIF basis for most of the builder hardware categories.

“The company wants to empower the buyers by providing them the convenience to decide their own pricing for the products," says ´╗┐Raheel Ahmad, director and founder, Global Metal Co. "Despite technological advancements, the working of the hardware industry hasn’t changed much in almost 100 years, and still largely engages in annoyingly archaic practices. Often customer issues pertaining to pricing have gone unresolved, until now."
