It is the 10th of July 2018, this means that it has been one year since Omentra has launched the first ever B2B website in Sri Lanka offering an online procurement solution. The procurement process can be quite stressful as it takes a long time for everything to be processed and approved. Omentra.com provides the perfect solution to these problems. You could scroll through the products online at ease with all the information that you would require, compare products and download quotations online to procure thereafter.
What’s better? The ‘Buy Request’ option is where you can fill in details about the product you are searching for and the rest is done for you by Team Omentra. Usually a feature as such would have charges but Omentra provides this service for free! Your requirements would simply be forwarded to suitable suppliers, who will provide you with quotations. The customer would have a whole array of options to choose from.
