Discover Connections

Overview

Explore the Discover feature to effortlessly locate and connect with new suppliers, bypassing the conventional RFP process. This is especially helpful when you're looking to expand your supplier network.

Discover Feature

Partsimony offers a feature called Discover that helps you find new suppliers. This is useful if you want to grow your list of suppliers without the normal steps of sending a Request for Proposal (RFP).

To access Discover, you must have a Mid-Tier SaaS license. This is a paid option. It offers a big benefit by making it simpler to meet new suppliers.

Using Discover to Find Suppliers

By clicking Discover, you unlock the ability to search for suppliers based on specific criteria like region, manufacturing methods, and shop type. Whether you need a prototype, a front-run production, or are gearing up for mass production, the Discover feature lets you tailor your search to find the most suitable suppliers.

Note: Partsimony doesn't show you all available suppliers in the network at once. Instead, it gives you a curated subset, based on the information you provide. This makes your search more focused and manageable.

For a more targeted approach, particularly when selecting suppliers for a specific manufacturing method, it's recommended to use a component from your project. Just go to your project, select the component you're focusing on, and proceed with the RFP process.
