How does fabb.one work?
Consumers are asked to specify their production requests and ideas in a technical tender. fabbs have then the chance to pitch individual offers reflecting their production capabilities and prices. Production requests are defined based on material properties, amount, delivery times and various other specifications, etc.. The inquiry leads to a call for bids for the registered companies on fabb.one.
After a given time, defined by the consumer, pricing indications and production options from potential suppliers will be displayed together with detailed company background data. The consumer then determines the final selection of providers which best match the given requirements and then may ask for an official quotation.
