SUFFIELD, CONN.—Sharkmarx, an online marketplace that links buyers and sellers of landscape products, has launched a new procurement engine.

“This is an exciting development for our industry,” says Co-founder George Beiter. “For the first time ever, landscape professionals are able to buy and sell landscape products over the Internet. This seems simple to most consumers, but when you’re working with forklifts and pallets that weigh as much as an average car, the logistics are a little trickier.”

Buyers of landscape products simply post their material needs on Its procurement engine automatically solicits bids from authorized sellers of those products. Each seller can submit competitive bid to earn the business. Winning sellers arrange delivery or pick-up as specified by the buyers material needs.

“The strength of our model is the reverse auction,” says Co-founder Dan Degan. “Our engine uses the reverse auction to get sellers competing for business, thus driving the price down for the seller and guaranteeing they get the best possible price.”

In return, Degan adds, sellers get access to new markets and sales channels that were otherwise unavailable to them.
