Applegate helps buyers find the goods and services their organisation needs. Quick, easy and free-to-use, our cloud based procurement platform enables you to request multiple quotes for anything from business services to promotional items - and much, much more besides.

Our database features information on millions of products and services from many thousands of companies - you can either search for what you need yourself, or just fill out a request for quotation and let us do the hard work for you.

Founded in 1996, Applegate was one of the earliest sources of online information for b2b purchasers. In recent years significant investment in the platform has transformed the services Applegate provides. In partnership with the Institute of Data Science and Artificial Intelligence at the University of Exeter, the company now develops machine learning systems, continually enhancing the matching of suppliers to buyers’ requests.

The company is a Strategic Partner of the US Department of Commerce International Trade Administration.
