Scientific procurement continues to grow rapidly around the world, and efforts to maximize limited financial resources and purchase essential products are impeded by exclusive distribution agreements, lock-in procurement contracts, geographic restrictions, and outdated purchasing systems and processes. In 2017, over $170 billion will be spent on Life Science R&D; the time and money lost throughout the procurement process is massive. The traditional method of procurement used by many laboratories is time-consuming, restrictive, and does not always result in the best or most cost-effective product solution. Finding workarounds and loopholes is commonplace in research organizations, as purchasing offers do everything they can to avoid bureaucratic headaches, and expedite procurement times.
"Every day, extraordinary scientists around the world are impeded by cumbersome purchasing systems, lack of product information, and limited knowledge of where to find the specialised products they need," said Kwong Choi, Web Developer at Beekr. "Our groundbreaking online marketplace is the culmination of a 15-year journey to address the problems of scientific procurement. We are thrilled by the fantastic feedback we are receiving both buyers and sellers about our marketplace."
