BuyerZone is an online marketplace for business-to-business purchases. The company is headquartered in Waltham, MA. As a lead generation website, BuyerZone connects buyers that are looking for specific products or services to multiple vendors that can meet their needs. Buyers enter details about themselves and the purchases that they intend to make, and BuyerZone then matches them to a set of participating vendors deemed the right fit for the customer. From there, the buyer and potential vendors can work out details of a deal, including everything from service levels to price.
Benefits for buyers include free price quotes, and the ability to easily shop for the best prices because they receive multiple bids from competing vendors. In turn, vendors get a source for verified, ready-to-purchase leads.
BuyerZone provides leads to over 8,500 local and national companies that offer over 150 different products and services, from office furniture equipment to telecommunications to construction equipment. Specific examples include payroll services, forklifts, software, phone systems, graphic design, and more. The BuyerZone editorial staff also provides objective Buyer’s Guides and other articles that provide detailed purchasing information, both on the BuyerZone site and elsewhere on the web, such as the article “Phone Scams of 2010.”
Founded in 1992 by its current President, Mie-Yun Lee, BuyerZone has stayed true to its original mission: to help define the way successful business transactions are created and conducted online. BuyerZone continues to test and develop the best methods and systems for connecting buyers and sellers by listening to the direct needs of both sides, and offering its customers solutions that are balanced, fair and simple.
BuyerZone is proud to be a 5-time winner of Deloitte’s New England Tech Fast 50. The company was acquired in 2007 by Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier.
