You can create two kinds of requests: a bid request for the network or a direct request for specific businesses.
Creating a bid request for the network can help you discover new suppliers and makes the process simpler in case you do not know suppliers for the product or service you are requesting. Simply specify the product or service you need and Lynkos will find the best-qualified suppliers. Once the suppliers send their proposals, you will be able to choose a winner to get the job done.
If you already have one or more suppliers in mind, you can create a direct request for those businesses. In this case, Lynkos will not look for additional suppliers and you will be able to choose a winner among the businesses you chose at the beginning.
