    "I placed my first Easy-RFQ on Techpilot within a few minutes. After a couple of days I had some very good quotes in my e-mail account and finally I found a new regular supplier, who was not only economically and qualitatively convincing, but also based in my area. The result of the RFQ satisfied me entirely."
