What customers say about Mercateo

"Over just two events, Mercateo informed our employees of all the premium search and shopping basket optimisation tips and tricks, how to use our Steinbeis catalogues, and transferring the shopping baskets according to SAP-MM, after which we were able to start straight away. The user interface is also intuitively designed for our users such that they are familiar with it from the world of online shopping."

Jan Geier, Purchasing Manager, Steinbeis

"Over the course of the year, over 1,000 purchase order requests have already been approved and ordered via the Mercateo portal. The number of processes shows that we have achieved our goal. All of these orders can now be evaluated and we can therefore gain a sound overall view of which ranges are in demand in the company and we can respond accordingly."

Markus Nuffer, Magura GmbH and Co. KG

"With Mercateo, we value the continuous development of innovative functions, such as Mercateo Auction or Mercateo Cluster. This increases the competition between the service providers on the platform, creates transparency, and leads to price reductions. For us, it is also important that our platform provider's ideas are sensible ones that coincide with the purchasing reality"

Sascha Schöls, Purchasing Manager, TRACTO-TECHNIK GmbH & Co. KG
