Applegate Marketplace Ltd
Applegate has provided business to business companies with a means to showcase their company and its products and services online since 1996. The company celebrated its 20th anniversary in 2016, the same year it launched its eProcurement system, Applegate PRO to revolutionise the way businesses buy.
Partnered with the Chartered Institute of Procurement and Supply, the world’s largest procurement and supply professional organisation. Applegate is unique in that it has combined the leading business to business online marketplace with an eProcurement system, to create an online buying tool that provides suppliers with enquiries, orders and brand exposure.
For buyers, Applegate PRO makes buying for your business quick and easy. Get competitive quotes, choose which one you want and send a purchase order at the click of a mouse.
Large organisations use eProcurement systems to manage suppliers and make sure they’re getting the best deals, but they’re expensive to implement and difficult to use, requiring specialist training. Now any business can get those benefits for free with Applegate PRO.
Become part of the Applegate Supplier Network to showcase your business online and receive quotation requests and orders from the hundreds of thousands of business buyers that use the site each month.
Your Applegate profile can be tailored to your company’s specific requirements. Catering for all marketing budgets, Applegate offer every company the opportunity to be a part of the business marketplace with a free business profile.
Since the launch of its eProcurement system, Applegate PRO has attracted buyers ranging from local government to the Cabinet Office, The White House, Airbus, the MoD and SpaceX.
Quotations to the eProcurement system raised an average value of £19,272,69 in Q1 of 2016, equating to over £8 million. In the first six months, Applegate PRO experienced over £80 million of requests for quotations, which were sent to Applegate clients.
In Q4 of 2016, Applegate Marketplace launched its new site, featuring a vastly improved search facility for businesses seeking out goods or services.
