PALO ALTO, Calif., July 31, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Quartzy, the only free online laboratory supply management and ordering platform, announced today its plan to help labs across the United States save even more on supply shipments with free standard shipping for all orders over $99. While already offering attractive shipping terms for many popular products, this new free shipping program is aimed at helping labs further consolidate their supply procurement efforts.
“Streamlining supplier relationships has been top of mind for many of our members who are looking at ways to make their costs more predictable and supply chains more reliable,” said Jayant Kulkarni, Quartzy’s Founder and CEO. “As our members look to consolidate their purchasing activity, we wanted to make that transition easier by eliminating the excess costs associated with these larger orders.”
Over the last few months, Quartzy users have gravitated towards using Quartzy as their primary source for their lab supply needs. Reliance on the Quartzy Shop has increased considerably as the platform has grown its product portfolio beyond three million SKUs and expanded its supplier partnerships and agreements to over 1,000 of the life science industry’s top suppliers and manufacturers. With the introduction of free shipping, the transition to using Quartzy as the procurement platform of choice for users, is now even easier.
“Free shipping over $99 is just one more thing to love about using Quartzy,” said Melissa Remmel, Associate Scientist at Inflammatix. “I work for a small start-up company where every dollar saved really makes a difference. I already know I'm getting the best prices available to us through the Quartzy Shop, plus the shipping from their Bay Area fulfillment center is incredibly quick, so free shipping really is a big bonus.”
In addition to supporting order consolidation, Quartzy members can also take advantage of free standard shipping on over 2.7 million products for smaller orders with many popular suppliers across the platform. This will enable added savings and convenience for labs consolidating orders that may, from time to time, need to make smaller last minute purchases. Quartzy users can start taking advantage of both of these shipping benefits starting today.
“We’re continuing to add new supplier partners every day so that our members can rely on us as their one-stop-shop for all of their lab supply needs,” added Kulkarni. “After all, the less time labs spend shopping around for supplies, the more time there is for scientific discovery, and that’s a big win.”
Quartzy provides the only complete solution for lab supply management that includes the world’s most comprehensive catalog of lab supplies and deals backed by over 1,000 of the life science industry’s top suppliers like MilliporeSigma and Rainin. Relied on by over 160,000 scientists in more than 13,000 labs nationwide, Quartzy delivers full supply lifecycle management that combines world-class inventory tracking with user-friendly order request tools to streamline communication and save labs time and money.
