HOW IT WORKS

The Project Life Cycle for Service Providers

Receive RFQ

A customer submits an RFQ.  3Diligent analyzes the project requirements against your capabilities and preferences.  If you are a great match for the request, you are notified of the project opportunity.

Refine Your Understanding

As needed, message with the 3Diligent team to refine your understanding of the project.

Submit a Bid

Offer a price and any conditions for completing the job. 

Order Acceptance

If your bid is accepted, 3Diligent handles all payment headaches and awards you the work.

Pre-Production

Click to acknowledge receipt of the job and being preparations for production.

Production

Advance status of the job to “In Production” and manufacture the RFQ according to the agreed upon terms.

Ship

Ship the part to meet the stated delivery deadline.  

Quality Assurance

Receive payment upon the customer's confirmation promised terms were delivered.

Is There a Cost?

3Diligent does not charge its vendors a membership fee to join – we simply ask vendors to cover the cost of printing a test part as a step in our supplier vetting process. 

Once you are onboarded, 3Diligent does not charge an ongoing membership fee either.  Instead, we retain a percentage of the total bid amount for awarded contracts.  This helps to cover the our costs for sales, marketing, and project management - expenses that you avoid when fulfilling 3Diligent work.  The share of the bid amount that you will retain is automatically calculated and displayed on screen whenever you are issuing a bid.
