Palo Alto, CA – (Feb. 12, 2018) – Quartzy, the only free online laboratory management platform offering an extensive lab supply ordering system, announced today the launch of its Quartzy Catalog, creating a centralized place online where labs can research and buy supplies, find competitive pricing, coordinate buying across multiple centers, track supplies all the way through the order process, and organize their inventory once it arrives. Combined with Quartzy’s free online laboratory management platform, labs now have an easy, cost-efficient way to order supplies and manage inventory from end to end across all of their multiple centers.
Quartzy also announced the opening of a warehouse in Redwood City, CA to store supplies from vendors and ensure they get to labs as quickly and efficiently as possible. Quartzy is also identifying an East Coast warehouse location to continue its commitment to exceptional customer service fulfillment nationwide.
“Until now, researchers have been relying on spreadsheets, whiteboards, and even sticky notes to order supplies, with unreliable pricing and availability information from multiple vendors,” said Jayant Kulkarni, Quartzy’s Co-founder and CEO. ”When my co-founder and I were scientists, we were frustrated at having to order our supplies from dozens of different vendors. The Quartzy Catalog simplifies ordering by consolidating millions of products from the world’s leading manufacturers into one place.”
With the Quartzy Catalog, users can find what they’re looking for as easily as performing a Google search. After that it’s as simple as adding the desired items to their shopping cart and checking out using a credit card or purchase order. When products are received, labs can automatically add them to their inventory data held in Quartzy and streamline future requests for those products through the Quartzy platform when they’re ready to order again.
“We have found Quartzy to be one of the most valuable laboratory management tools we've ever encountered,” said Justin Lenoff of Xerion Advanced Battery Corp. “Having the Quartzy Catalog integrated into the lab management platform is a major value add. Aside from consolidating our ordering workflow, the Quartzy Catalog is significantly cheaper and far more convenient than ordering from a supplier. By consolidating all of this extra work and time we had spent on ordering and tracking supplies, we can now focus on the work we’re meant to do; accelerating scientific discoveries in our laboratory.”
Quartzy provides the only solution that combines a free platform for lab management with the most diverse catalog of lab supplies for labs and companies. Used by over 160,000 scientists in more than 13,000 labs nationwide, Quartzy combines world-class inventory management and order request systems to end confusion, add efficiency, and save labs time and money. Quartzy’s inventory management system generates a clear central inventory list, making it easy to track the locations and quantities of all lab materials and consumables worldwide while its order request system simplifies communication between labs and department-level administrators who order, record and procure essential lab goods. Founded by scientists in 2011, Quartzy has raised more than $22M from Khosla Ventures, Eminence Capital, Y Combinator and others. Learn more about Quartzy at www.quartzy.com
