Procurement software maverick PhilYes rises

SINCE man decided to create rather than seek shelter, there has been a need to find quality building materials. And walking past stalls at WordlBex 2017, the Philippines’ biggest construction expo, it’s easy to feel like a true world-builder.

You get an urge to snap your fingers and utter “let there be light! And heat! And centralized air-conditioning!” as you stride past the industry’s biggest brands. There is a sense of wonder at the impressive earth-movers, at the latest in security systems, and at the most efficient of solar collectors. There is even a sense of gratitude which comes from knowing that WorldBex is five days long—for there is hardly a way one can absorb so many marvels within barely a week.

Yet with this boom in expositions comes a unique problem—efficient sourcing. Gone are the days when one-size-fits-all. People now demand one-size-fits-me. And the sheer number of options for materials and their manufacturers mean that products of the industrial revolution need a digital evolution.

Enter PhilYes, and the power of sourcing through silicon. This fledgling tech company provides an invaluable service—connecting suppliers and buyers in a way that makes building anything, seamless.

Need a quantity of concrete? A certain amount of cement? A specific grade of glass or kind of carbon fiber? PhilYes has you covered. Their sourcing platform serves as a link for sellers and buyers—which goes both ways. Suppliers can post opportunity posts for available products, helping purchasers find materials they need, cheaper, better, or newer.

With the conclusion of the 22nd Worldbex and the first year PhilYes has joined, there is a sense of promise. That whether building a home, a skyscraper, or city —access to the best materials will always be at your fingertips. SIGN UP NOW
