About Applegate PRO
“Source smarter, buy better with Applegate PRO, a new e-Procurement service from Applegate Marketplace.
Stuart Brocklehurst, Chief Executive Officer of Applegate Marketplace, commented: “For the past 20 years Applegate has been helping buyers find the products and suppliers they need. In the past year, we have formed partnerships with the Chartered Institute of Procurement and Supply, the body of professional buyers, and also with Wer Liefert Was, the leading business platform in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Now, with the launch of Applegate PRO, we are transforming the way businesses buy.”

Applegate PRO will streamline complex processes such as a Request for Quotation, that can take hours or even days into one that takes minutes.
