FSbuy.com has entered into an affiliation agreement with AutoQuotes, a database and catalog company, to provide FSbuy.com members its PC-based electronic foodservice product catalog, including pictures and specifications, which will integrate with FSbuy.com's procurement engine. Under the terms of the agreement, FSbuy.com members will be able to attain prices, specifications and configuration programs for over 180,000 food supply and equipment products, from 200-plus manufacturers, ranging from heavy equipment to tabletop items.

"We are very excited about this partnership because it will allow our members to utilize AutoQuotes' innovative catalog to streamline the procurement process online," said Tim Carda, co-founder and acting chief executive officer for Anaheim, CA-based FSbuy.com.

AutoQuotes, based in Jacksonville, Florida, is distributed monthly and worldwide to dealers, representatives, consultants and specifiers to quickly assemble information on specific foodservice and supply items. The Spec Catalog CD, which is used in conjunction with the database, contains more than 60,000 products. AutoQuotes' database facilitates the generation of manufacturer spec sheets, printed quotations and purchase orders.

"This strategic alliance with FSbuy.com will allow its members to more efficiently procure foodservice equipment and supplies online," said Kent Motes, president and chief executive officer of AutoQuotes. "FSbuy.com provides us with the opportunity to empower an even larger network of buyers and vendors within the foodservice industry through our product catalog."

Recently launched in April, FSbuy.com is a 'buyer centric and vendor neutral' e-commerce solution for the foodservice industry. The site unites foodservice buyers with distributors, dealers, reps and manufacturers through a single industry-specific website offering the 'complete package' from food/paper, beverage products, equipment, smallwares/tabletop, janitorial, office supplies to consultants, and service providers. This is a single-point-of-entry system for pre-qualified buyers and vendors to access industry information and current news events as well as a one-stop shopping tool for daily procurement, bidding, auctioning/reselling, budgeting, and real-time reporting.
